Sea World

Sea World was originally founded by Keith Williams as the Surfers Paradise Sky Gardens.The main attractions were “water ski shows that combined sos, aqua ballet and action”. In 1971, the Surfers Paradise Ski Gardens moved to land on the Spit. Major dredging works were required to build the new ski lake. A year later, the Surfers Paradise Ski Gardens became known as Sea World with the introduction of dolphins, marine displays, a replica of the Endeavour, a swimming pool, licensed restaurant and gift shop.  Extra additions over the next decade included the purchasing of competitor marine park, Marineland, and the transfer of animals and exhibits to Sea World as well as the addition of more shops and food outlets.

In 1984 Keith Williams sold the park to property development group Pivot Leisure. Later in 1988 Pivot built the 400 room Sea World Nara Resort. In 1991 Pivot Leisure, Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow jointly developed and opened Warner Bros. Movie World, a Hollywood theme action park, at Oxenford on the Gold Coast. Also that year Pivot Purchased Wet n’ Wild Water park located next to the site of Warner Bros. Movie World.

In 1993, Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow jointly acquired Pivot Leisure’s interest in Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World and the adjoining Sea World Nara Resort.
