About Ardent Leisure Group Ltd

Ardent Leisure Group Ltd (ASX: ALG) is the operator of some of Australia’s best-known theme parks including Dreamworld and WhiteWater World. Dreamworld, located on Queensland’s Gold Coast, is the biggest theme park in Australia. It boasts around 50 rides and attractions as well as ten different ‘worlds’ to explore.  

WhiteWater World is situated next door to Dreamworld and, according to Ardent Leisure, is “one of most cutting edge water ride parks in the world”. In addition to its theme parks, Ardent Leisure also operates Main Event Entertainment and SkyPoint. Main Event Entertainment is a leisure business centred around bowling with around 40 centres across the United States. Located in Surfers Paradise and sitting at the top of one of Australia’s tallest buildings, SkyPoint provides 360° views of the surrounding coastline and hinterland.

Ardent Leisure listed on the ASX in 2018. With the closure of its attractions during COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, the Ardent Leisure share price was decimated in the February/March 2020 crash. The company’s shares lost nearly 90% of their value in the space of two months.
