The main reason for our trip to Gold Coast was to visit the theme parks. When we planned our holiday we were not sure if it was the right time for it as it is was the start of winter but we were glad to discover that sunny Queensland lived up to is name and even in May, the weather was nice and sunny.
We spent a day going to Sea World and we had a great time.
We started the day early as we wanted to see everything in one day.
As soon as we got there we went to watch the Fish Detective Sea Lion show. The show started at 10.15am and it was quite an entertaining show with all the tricks from the Sea Lion.
After that we went straight to the Affinity Dolphin show where we got to learn a bit more about Dolphins and watch the amazing acrobatic performance. We really liked it and my in-laws and Chhori were happy too.
From there it was time for some rides. Chhori enjoyed the Nickelodeon Land where there were rides for small kids so we took her on a few rides. Some she really enjoyed and others she was not very keen on.
My in laws also enjoyed many rides including mini roller-coaster and Vikings Revenge Flume.
The Vikings Revenge Flume was the best one for adult as it ends with a 13 meters drop with a speed of around 58 km/hr with splashes of water everywhere.
On the Nickelodeon Land, they also had a Dora show which is called Dora’s Best Friends Adventure Show and was Chhori’s favourite show of the day. She dance and had fun with the characters on the stage.
Throughout the day we also checked out the Polar Bears, animated Sharks and dolphins, Penguins, tropical fish, and sting rays and sharks. The interactive touch pools were good as well as we could feel the starfish and other rock pool creatures.
The last show for the day was Jet Stunt Extreme where some of the world’s best Jet Ski competitors perform plenty of stunts and flips.
It was a very long day and we were all tired once we finished for the day. We drove back to the hotel and rested for a while.
Then we were off to the swimming pool and spa to wind down. I loved the holiday for various reasons – no cooking, no cleaning, no worrying, just relaxation and heaps of fun.
If you ever visit Gold Coast, make sure to visit Seat World. It is one of the best places to take kids as well.
Take care ,
