Movie World Gold Coast

We went to Warner Bros. Movie World again the next day after the Carnivale. It had a different vibe in the morning than the night before. The theme park had attractions and rides that catered to all age groups, there is something to do for everyone.

I had tried some extreme rides here before like Superman Escape which goes from 0-100km/h in less than two seconds, Arkham Asylum which has speeds of up to 85km, batwing Spaceshot, a rapid 4.5G vertical launch up a 60 meter tower, followed by a drop into a breathtaking negative descent – beyond freefall (you feel like there is no seat under you) the last time I was here but I had never been on the Green Lantern Coaster.

This time we didn’t bother with extreme rides but stuck to rides at WB Kids Zone which is great to go on with kids.

We took Chhori to Looney Tunes Carousel, Sylvester & Tweety Cages with my MIL while AS and MIL went and enjoyed Road Runner Coaster.

By that time it was time for the street parade so we went back to Main Street to enjoy the All Star Parade featuring Movie World characters including Batman, Scooby Doo & Shaggy, Bugs Bunny & friends as well as DC Superheroes and Villains.

We also enjoyed the action-packed Hollywood Stunt Driver show which was particularly great if you love cars and stunts. It was fun with the story line and the big bang at the end.

Movie World’s Carnivale Night

The first night we were in Gold Coast, we went to the Movie World to enjoy Carnivale. It only happens every Saturday evenings and it was the only Saturday we were going to be in Gold Coast.

At first we were not sure if we wanted to go but we decided we should and I’m glad we did it as it is a phenomenal event.

We landed at Gold Coast airport, picked up the hire car and drove over an hour to Movie World. By the time we parked there, it was dark but the weather was not too cold. Going from cold Sydney, Goal coast was the perfect temperature for us.

When we walked through the gates it really was like stepping into Vegas with beautifully dressed performers, the music, the actual carnivale, and varieties of food.

There were many rides operating as well and we could hear the screams of people full of excitements.

Chhori was mesmerised by the amazing lights and the crowd. My in-laws also enjoyed the performance and the ambiance of the place.

We took heaps of photos with the performers and enjoyed our time.

But the highlight of the evening is definitely the spectacular parade featuring themed floats, hypnotic dancers, light displays and over 100 specialty performers who roll through Main Street with stilt walkers, acrobats, fire twirlers and more.

As it was already late, we decided to have dinner there. My in laws had vegetarian nachos which were great but our pulled pork nachos were not very nice, though the chicken wings were amazing. As there are so many people, it was a bit of hassle and wait for the food but overall we had an amazing start to our trip and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting Gold Coast.
