Will the theme parks be crowded on Queen's birthday 14 June?

Hi all,

We will be in surfers on 14-17 June. Are the theme parks very crowded on Queen's birthday given it is a public holiday? Or is it similar to the usual weekend crowd?

Do you think we should adjust our iternary to avoid visiting a theme park on that day?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hi

There is a good chance it will be busier than usual. Maybe try going the day after...

The theme parks are going through a quieter than normal period at the moment however will be busier given people are on holiday. I would probably go on the Tuesday rather than the Monday.

We are hoping that the crowds will be down on 14th June because thats the day we visit Dreamworld using the $30 facebook tickets

I've found its always pretty busy on long weekends. Peopel take the weekend and go down the coast from Brisbane and that sort of thing. Good thing is that it is cooling off now and you wont bake in the sun waiting in line though!

A few weeks ago Dreamworld wanted 60,000 people to sign up on their facebook page and the result was $30 tickets valid until the end of June. They didnt quite make it on the first attempt and after some pressure they extended the offer by three days and easily crossed over threshold. It was quite extensively promoted on the GC, Brisbane, Australian and NZ forums.
