Village Roadshow Theme Parks offers free entry to Commonwealth Games athletes and volunteers

Village Roadshow Theme Parks offers free entry to Commonwealth Games athletes and volunteers
March 20, 2018

Village Roadshow Theme Parks have announced that Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) athletes and volunteers are being offered complimentary entry to its four theme parks.

During the GC2018 games period, all athletes and volunteers will be eligible to enjoy the thrilling rides and attractions on offer at Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World, Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast and Paradise Country complimentary on production of their GC2018 accreditation documentation.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Executive Clark Kirby said the group will be proud to showcase its attractions during the Games, stating “we are excited to offer athletes and volunteers the opportunity to experience our world-class rides and attractions while they are here on the Gold Coast.

“The parks will provide a great opportunity for athletes to simply relax and have some fun outside of the fierce competition taking place.

“It is also a fantastic way for us to say thank you to the thousands of hard-working volunteers who will be helping throughout the period.”

Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Minister Kate Jones said it was important to recognise the volunteers who had already started to work at Games venues in the lead-up to the opening ceremony.

Minister Jones advised “we’ve trained more than 15,000 volunteers who are selflessly giving their time to make sure we deliver the best Commonwealth Games of all time.

“It’s great that Village Roadshow have recognised them for their hard work as well.

“What makes the Gold Coast such an important visitor destination is the variety of its tourism offering – from the natural beauty of the hinterland and the beaches, to the theme parks and the nightlife.

“Village Roadshow are an important part of that mix and we’ll continue to work with them on tourism opportunities in the future.”

Village Roadshow Theme Parks will also be offering a special ticket for all team officials and athletes’ family and friends to visit the parks during the period.
