To help stop the spread of coronavirus, we’ve made some changes. Please understand visiting Scenic World will not be the same experience it was before COVID-19.
Passes are available ONLINE ONLY with timed-ticket entry for all guests. Your experience starts sharply at the time of your booking to allow for check in.
Due to physical distancing, capacity is limited across the venue, including our rides. Entry is via timed tickets – Scenic Passes – booked ahead online, with small sessions starting every 15 minutes.
Please note that only the 10 minute boardwalk is currently open as part of the pre-approved circuit due to Covid-19.
The Scenic Pass includes all Scenic World’s unique attractions in a pre-approved circuit which takes roughly one hour. It’s what we call the Scenic Route!
- Take in World heritage panoramas with a return trip between clifftops on the Scenic Skyway,
- Descend into the Jamison Valley on the Scenic Railway, the world’s steepest train.
- Stroll under the canopy of an extraordinary temperate rainforest on the Scenic Walkway, and
- Glide past ancient sandstone cliffs, the Three Sisters & Orphan Rock on the Scenic Cableway.
Small numbers of guests will depart every 15 minutes from the Main Ticket Box. Smaller numbers mean no queues or crowding, with time at the end of your experience to browse our retail store or grab pizza & local craft beer in the café.
Some things haven’t changed a bit:
- Crisp, fresh air and epic Blue Mountains landscapes;
- amazing ride engineering;
- exceptional customer service; and
- unforgettable memories with your favourite folks.
Safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff remains Scenic World’s constant priority. To help stop the spread of coronavirus, we have worked with health and safety experts to implement enhanced cleaning and safe hygiene processes that meet all requirements.
We have increased the number frequency of our already thorough cleaning procedures. High touch points are sanitised with disinfectant, including every ride cabin after every journey, plus a deep clean in every cabin, every 2 hours.
With these additional COVIDsafe measures across site and on our rides, we have reduced our capacity and are allowed to carry up to 60 guests on each ride, as our rides are considered 'public transport'. As per Government advice, you should consider wearing a face mask in situations where physical distancing may not be possible such as on our rides.
Throughout your visit, we ask you to please observe physical distancing, cover your cough and practice safe hand hygiene at the many hand santiser stations across site.
As per Government advice, we recommend you download the COVIDSafe app.
We’re sure the peace of mind provided by our enhanced measures allows you to focus on fun!
