Village Roadshow


Village Roadshow Theme Parks (VRTP) is a wholly-owned division of Australian media company Village Roadshow Ltd.

The company is Australia’s leading theme park owner and operator with two parks located in Queensland’s Gold Coast – the Warner Bros. Movie World movie-themed park and Sea World marine theme park.

In addition to its theme parks, Village Roadshow owns and operates two Wet’n’Wild water parks (Gold Coast and Las Vegas), TopGolf Gold Coast, a water park resort, an animal farm attraction, a dinner show, and a 400-room hotel adjacent to Sea World. VRTP also operates Lionsgate Entertainment World, a movie-themed indoor interactive experience developed by Lai Sun Group in Zhuhai, China.

The company currently licenses intellectual properties from Warner Bros. (for Warner Bros. Movie World), Nickelodeon (for Sea World) and Lionsgate (for Lionsgate Entertainment World).

Village Roadshow had previously licensed content from Cartoon Network (1999 to 2007), followed by Sesame Street (2007 to 2011), and Blue Sky Studios/Fox (2014).

In addition to its existing projects in Australia and China, VRTP is also focused on broader Asia, where it is pursuing theme park operating opportunities, but not capital investment.
