Gold Coast theme parks - Movieworld

As I mentioned earlier, Warner Bros Movieworld is (I think) popular among Asians. The entrance seemed like a gateway into the greater Asia. It felt different, it felt like home.

The spaceshot is actually quite fun. It shots you right up in high speed, free fall then back up and down like a spring.


The Wild West Falls Adventure. Fun to get yourself wet but not that scary for me.


In the Wild West village


Superman Escape. I was a bit chickened that day, didn't try.



Awww.......Duffy...I wanna hug you to sleep can?


It was a fun day. We decided to call it a day at around 2:30pm and took bus back to Burleigh Head for a late sunbathing session.

Haha. There is another ride, Lethal Weapon is even crazier. It is like a roller coaster but with your feet hanging out. *shudder*

Arrowouiz:

Yes, it seems more popular, and Movie World seems more colourful and vibrant. Till now, I can't quite tell the difference between Dreamworld and Movie World. Aren't both of them in Brisbane?

Hi Doreen, wow! Impressive. Never knew they have one down under, ha ha.
If there's one thin I will not sit is a roller coaster ride, ha ha.
My tummy don't take too kindly to all that rush up and down.

Gosh, you sure look terrific in your outfit Doreen...love your designer sunglasses.
Seeing the beautiful weather in your pics so wonderful.
We've had heavy snow past 3 days, more snow on the way, so it will be a white X'mas for us.

Right now its about -19'c!!! Yes, you read that right, ha ha, -19'c!
You have fun and stay beautiful, best of Seasons greetings, Lee.

Hahahaha, I am trying to imagine you in the sexy catwoman suit. Phewit! *nose bleeding*

oceanskies79:
Yes, agree with you that Movieworld is more colourful. Both theme parks are actually located north of Gold Coast, probably around 45 mins drive south from Brisbane.
