Do Pensioners Have To Pay At Theme Parks If Not Going On Rides
Do pensioners have to pay at Gold Coast theme parks if not going on rides?
Do pensioners who accompany children to Gold Coast theme parks have to buy an entry ticket, even if they aren't going on any rides?
If, so do they get a pensioner discount?
I totally understand where this question is coming from! I am not a pensioner, but I rarely go on the rides myself.
Unfortunately, everyone who enters the theme parks on the Gold Coast (Dreamworld, Movieworld, SeaWorld, Wet n Wild and Whitewater World) has to pay for an entry ticket.
Good news is there are pensioner prices
for Gold Coast theme park tickets, as long as you fit the criteria. Generally, if you are an Australian or NZ pensioner and can show your card, you will get the pensioner price. Each of the theme parks have their own policies, so you would need to check the fine print, but that is a the general rule of thumb.
The main reason for this is that once you enter the theme park, you don't show your tickets again to go on rides - so there would be no way of telling who had paid to ride and who had not. Also, the theme parks don't just have rides, they have other attractions, shows and exhibits that you can enjoy!
