We provide experiences with people in wheelchairs, those with hearing and/or visual impairments, people with physical limitations such as amputees, as well as people with autism, cerebral palsy and more.
Each one of our facilities on the Gold Coast, cater to the following , however it is advisable to check prior to your visit :
Both Timezone Gold Coast locations feature undercover parking with numerous accessible parking spaces. Both car parks provide access to the Timezone locations , via escalators and lift access. A drop off point is available at both locations in the car park adjacent to the shopping centre entrances.
All locations have lift access for people with mobility needs, as well as restrooms and entrances that are designed to be wheelchair and pram accessible.
All our entrances are wide and open with no sliding doors or restrictions. The space between attractions is wide enough to allow easy movement around the facility.
There is clearly defined signage that provides instant directions to the various facilities and access points throughout the facility. The floor is solid with minimal depressions which allows wheelchairs to safely transverse throughout the entertainment centre.
We provide large bathrooms at both locations which are easily accessible on the same level of the facility.
Service animals are also welcome at all of our locations in the spirit of inclusiveness. Unfortunately, they aren't permitted to be on any rides or attractions , but they are more than welcome to watch the entire experience.
