Movie Magic on Your Gold Coast Holiday
Your Gold Coast holiday should have a little bit of everything, and to fully complete that goal you must make sure to visit Warner Bros Movie World at some point during your stay.
Opened in June 1991, Movie World is Australia’s only theme park based on movies, and as such brings a unique experience to the Gold Coast holiday you will remember forever.
Like all good movie based theme parks there is an awful lot going on at Movie World. The rides and shows are a given, and they are the attractions that will have you wanting to make the trip. It is many of the smaller side details however that gives the park its true flavour.
Singing performances and live action skits as you walk through Movie World help add to the park’s theme, as do chance meetings with characters such as Batman and Shrek who will happily pose for a photo opportunity. This feeling of being on a movie set culminates with the All-Star Parade which features all your favourite characters on floats.
So now that you feel like you are on the set of a movie it is time to check out the rides and shows that Movie World has on offer. Rides range from water attractions like Wild West Falls, a log flume that travels through an Old West ghost town and features the largest water ride drop in Australia, to roller coasters like Superman Escape, which has a mind numbing acceleration of 0-100kph in less than 2 seconds.
There are also simulator rides based on movie franchises like Batman, and a great kid’s area themed around that crazy Looney Toons mob.
You may, like many though, find the shows to be the most enjoyable part of Movie World, after all what could be better than a show based around a movie you already love? Two of the major shows at the park are Hollywood Stunt Driver, and Shrek 4-D.
Hollywood Stunt Driver sees you on the set of an action movie with a car chase scene about to be filmed. With explosions, gunshots, and car chases it a feast for the eyes and ears of any fan of this kind of movie and will have you right on the edge of your seat.
Shrek 4-D is a 3-D movie in a movie theatre with physical effects such as mist sprays and moving seats. The whole effect is that you lose yourself in the on screen action laughing and screaming along with everyone else.
Movie theme parks are just an enjoyable day out, and Movie World is no exception. Deep down everyone wants to be a movie star and by going on the rides and watching the shows at the Warner Bros Park you really do feel like you are part of the action. Everyone should make a visit to Movie World as part of their Gold Coast holiday plans.
