Theme parks across Queensland are preparing to reopen with coronavirus safety measures to protect visitors and staff.

Sea World, on the Gold Coast, will open its doors to the public next Friday, while Movie World and Wet 'n' Wild are looking to reopen on July 15.

The theme parks are looking at a staggered approach with tickets on your mobile phone, rather than physical print outs.

Additional staff will be on hand to provide extra cleaning on rides and around the parks, which will remain as contactless as possible.

Those working at the parks are also being trained to detect signs of COVID-19.

The Queensland Government has been criticised for not moving to stage three restrictions as quickly as other states and territories, with the Treasury indicating the delay in reopening the state's borders has prevented a $650 million a month boost to Queensland tourism as well as impacting over 65,000 jobs.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is standing by her July 10 date to reopen borders, in time for Move World and Wet 'n' Wild reopening.
