theme-parkThe pre-eminent theme park of The Sunshine Coast has been offered the green signal to improve itself considerably.


The brand new Downunder Drive precinct, Aussie World is ready for further improvements when the Sunshine Coast Council was offered the green light for expansion with five new rides to be constructed.


And, the approval for it was given last month and also a letter from the council was issued to the site owner Timevale Ltd. Dated 2nd November, along with conditions of the new rides.


It has been operating since the year 1989.


As many as 200,000 visitors a year have been attending the popular theme park that is placed alongside the Bruce Highland. Two fresh rides have already been declared in May with the Crazy Mouse roller-coaster and Typhoon 360 coming to replace the Wild Mouse roller-coaster and also the Octopus ride.


As part of the expansion that would be increasing the park from about 6ha to 22ha in size, five additional rides that are recently approved would also be established, as part of the regular reinvention needed to keep luring punters to the theme park.


Planning documents indicated that the changes were expected to raise average stay times at the theme park from 2.9 hours to 3.9 hours.


These alterations follow a 2011 transformation strategy of this theme park that had introduced three new rides at a price of more than $2 million. The five nre rides approved for the park include the Drop Tower (40 metres high, 12-person capacity), Air Race (10 metres high, 24-person capacity), Windstarz (9metres high, 24-person capacity), Star Fly (40 metres high, 24-person capacity), and the Aerobat (6 to 15 meters high, 14-person capacity).


Among the conditions in the council approval all new mechanical equipment need to be screened or fully enclosed so that they are not visible from the street front or adjoining properties.


This approval has also formalized the trading hours of Aussie World with the theme park operating from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. for seven days a week.
