A Movieworld Adventure

No visit to Australia's Gold Coast would not be complete without a visit to one of the theme parks located just a short drive from most of Surfers Paradise's tourist accomodation.

As I mention is an earlier post, on this visit we concentrated on the one theme park, Movieworld.

Warner Bros Movieworld is a one of the best of the theme parks to visit, mainly because it has something for everyone, no matter what the age or the level of mobility, from toddlers, to thrillseekers  right through to pensioners. For the adventerous, rides include the Batwing Spaceshot, Batman Adventure, Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster, Superman Escape (0 - 100 kph in 2 secs!), The Wild West Falls & Lethal Weapon (unfortunately not operating on this visit). 

For the kiddies (plus the less adventurous), is the Looney Tunes Fun Zone and the Shrek 4-D Adventure attractions.. 

Not only are there the rides, there is ample free entertainment throughout the day to keep the 'oldies' entertained, including the amazing Stunt Driver Show and the Grand Parade. Also if you have a lecherous old fool in tow, he'll love the Marilyn Munroe Show, I know I did!  

I took my small Sanyo S1275 for capturing those unique photographic moments around the Park and it performed every task asked of it. The bulky size of the Canon 400D and other DSLR's can be a real hindrance if you want to go on all the rides, so I was glad I made the decision to leave the 400D back at the unit for the day 

Movieworld is a wonderful way to spend a day on the Gold Coast, but be warned, it can also be a very tiring day out for the faint hearted!
