One day in Movie World - Gold Coast


It was quite confusing for me whether to choose going to Movie World or Dream World for my itinerary in Gold Coast at first. I decided to watch point of view movie clip some of the rides on Youtube and I totally attracted to Green Lantern Coaster and Superman Escape in Movie World, well then Movie World it is.

It was easy peasy to reach all of the theme parks in Gold coast by bus and the bus would likely come every 10 minutes. In around 30 minutes, I arrived at Movie world bus stop and at the same time I heard those little kids screamed "we are heree... we are here...", yes kiddo we are here.
  
I bought the tickets online which is cheaper than if you buy it on the spot. I paid A$79 for Local season pass unlimited entry to Sea World, Movie World and Wet n' Wild for 5 consecutive days. Meanwhile, if you buy the tickets on the spot it will cost you A$89 for one park only.

The rides

I was so sad when I finding out the park is smaller than my expectation but the rides were so awesome and I like all the characters. Here are some rides that I like the most but if you want to get more details of the rides, you can visit Movie World website.

Green Lantern Coaster




I really confused when I rode this one and I become the one who really excited and screamed "woohooo, yeaaaaayyy" meanwhile the rest were in the moment of silence, LOL. I didn't know whether they were sleepy or really afraid of this one. It has 3 times 360 degree twist which is maybe the reason why most of the people on my car didn't even want to scream out. You should try this one :)

Batwing spaceshot



Superman Escape






This is also another roller coaster with a twist. There is no 180 degree twist in this ride as long as I remember, this ride is something else. Roller coaster usually run slowly on the first climbing track but it didn't apply on this ride, you can find thrilling moment from the very first climbing track.

Scooby-doo Spooky coaster



This ride is similar with the Mummy Revenge ride in Universal Studios Singapore, but it moves slower. It has both dark room experience and backward movement track too. I didn't really like this one because it made my left arm hurt due to the movement but I really like the track.

Wild West Falls




there is also kids area in WB kids 





Road Runner Roller Coaster 

these kids were really excited on the ride

Whenever I come to the theme park, I usually choose kid's roller coaster first for warming up. This roller coaster was my first ride on that day, hahahahah with all of those kids.

Sylvester & Tweety Cages


Meet The Characters

On some specific place there would be character meet up and in case you missed it, there will be a parade on main road at 3.30pm everyday and all of the character on that day meet up will be join the parade.

Some of the characters appearance will be guided by 1 photographer but when there is no photographer with them and you travel to the theme park alone, well you can go for selfie photo then. Psst in the second day I came to this park, the one who act as Shaggy can say some words in Indonesian language like "Selamat Siang" (good afternoon) and "Sampai Jumpa" (see you again).



More Info:
- There are 50% discount store next to the entrance open around 3 pm, if you already bought some souvenirs up to A$50 then you can buy everything in this store with 50% discount
- There are some postcard with Movie World theme sold in souvenir stores
- There is a prayer room in WB kids area next to Sylvester & Tweety cages ride
