Now that Queensland's borders have finally opened, Australia's best theme parks have welcomed interstate travellers once again with thousands already flooding through the gates.
It's created a sense of normality after a roller coaster ride with COVID-19 and despite the ever-increasing case numbers long lines, thrill seekers and happy faces are back.
The Bingham family from Melbourne is thrilled to be out of lockdown and back with family in Queensland to enjoy a sense of normality.

"We are back in the country of Australia again as opposed to separate states which were very cut-off from each other for so long," dad Aaron Bingham told A Current Affair.
The key difference now, is everyone must check in and show they're fully vaccinated before entering any theme parks.
Sydney based grandfather Terry said while the spread of the virus remains a concern, it's about being cautious.
"We're double vaxxed and wearing masks, plenty of hand sanitiser and just being careful especially indoors," he said.
It appeared that the overall concern for thrill seekers was to escape the heat over catching COVID-19, especially at the parks that had new attractions.
"At Movie World we've got a WB showcase Batman Legacy opening and that's lots of film props and attractions from Batman films," Renee Soutar from Village Roadshow Theme Parks said.

At Sea World, cute penguins, entertaining seals and incredible water stunts are on offer, along with the Vortex ride which opened last summer.
"But because the borders have been closed, lots of guests from interstate haven't even been able to see it," Ms Soutar explained.
As for Dreamworld, it opened its newest attraction just before the influx from southern neighbours.
The Steel Taipan ride snakes around a one-kilometre track with three gut-lurching launches.
If you want to be part of the action, there's some great deals on offer at all the theme parks too.

"We've got a great range of packages for families who want to come for a short trip. We've got three day tickets, seven, 14 and even annuals for our locals," Ms Soutar said.
A single day pass to Movie World, Wet 'n' Wild, Sea World and Paradise Country starts from $79 or you can see them all over a week for $169.
If you'd rather Dreamworld, WhiteWater World, and SkyPoint Observation Deck a year-long pass is just $109 for locals and $179 for visitors, while a one day ticket is $79.
