Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the new waterslides at Wet’n’Wild were an important part of the
Palaszczuk Government’s Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan for Gold Coast tourism.

“We’ve partnered with Village Roadshow on a $70 million investment in theme park infrastructure to create
new world-class visitor experiences on the Gold Coast,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“The four new waterslides are a terrific addition to Wet’n’Wild with completion perfectly timed to make a splash with Queensland and interstate visitors this summer. Village Roadshow is a good example of tourism operators who have supported construction jobs during the pandemic by finding opportunities to rebuild better with new visitor experiences to accelerate our pandemic recovery.”
