Village Roadshow Theme Parks reveal schedule for opening of new Sea World attractions
Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Operating Officer, Bikash Randhawa has provided details of the schedule for the opening of new attractions at Sea World.
Having unveiled their ambitious plans for The New Atlantis area in May, new renderings and concept art for the under-construction of the new Vortex thrill ride have been released.
Openings of the new attractions at the Gold Coast theme park, culminating in the landmark Leviathan wooden roller coaster will now be extended out to April 2021 with Trident, a flying theatre ride from Australian manufacturer Funtime the final component following Leviathan's planned December 2020 opening.
Vortex, a Top Spin from Germany's Huss is still expected to open in December of this year with construction well underway at Sea World.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Operating Officer Bikash Randhawa told the Parkz website that the reasons for the delays were largely due to logistics, advising “the postponement of The Trident is to facilitate the construction of the hero attraction within The New Atlantis precinct, The Leviathan which is opening in December 2020.
“The Trident will now open in April 2021 and will be the final attraction to launch within The New Atlantis precinct after The Vortex and Leviathan attractions.”
With Vortex three months away from opening Sea World have added more concept art that shows a change to the original depiction which saw extensive use fountains and resort style shade sails surrounding the ride.
Newly released vision shows instead abstract stone walls surrounding the ride – likely playing to the new part of the area's New Atlantis name. It's unclear if fountains will still form part of the final ride experience.
