SEA WORLD AND DEAF SERVICES TO HOST DEAF COMMUNITY



Deaf Services is proud to partner with Sea World to host a weekend celebrating Deaf community and culture.

On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October Sea World is offering members of the Deaf and hard of hearing community FREE ENTRY to the park, as well as 50% off entry for friends and family accompanying them (entry to be purchased on the day of attendance).

Additionally, a number of Sea World’s iconic shows and presentations such as the Affinity Dolphin Presentation and the all new Thunder Lake Stunt Show will feature Auslan interpreting, provided free of charge by Deaf Services.

Bikash Randhawa, Village Roadshow Theme Parks COO, said Sea World was delighted to join forces with Deaf Services to host the weekend.

“Sea World prides itself on being a family-friendly destination, which provides a welcoming environment for all guests and we are excited to be able to offer this opportunity to the Deaf community,” he said.

“We want to ensure all of our guests can experience the world-class rides, attractions and presentations on offer at the park and events such as these highlight our commitment to creating memories for our guests which last lifetimes.”

Deaf Services CEO, Brett Casey said their organisation is thrilled to partner with Sea World for the event.

“As the leading not-for-profit organisation providing support to Deaf and hard of hearing Australians of all ages, it is heartening to know that Sea World echoes Deaf Services’ commitment to a more inclusive, accessible and equitable Australia,” he said.

“Deaf Community Day will be hugely positive for the Deaf community as we turn our vision of all community members empowered, connected and achieving into a reality."
