Step into the world of movie magic! For an adventure that is adrenalin pumping and full of fun, you won’t want to look further than Warner Brothers Movie World. Dubbed as “Hollywood on the Gold Coast”, Warner Brothers Movie World is one of the four major theme parks located on the Gold Coast. The moment you step through its gates you’ll understand how Movie World earns its nickname. You’ll find everything is themed – from the rides to the food outlets to the streets you walk on. It’s like stepping onto a movie set. The wide range of attractions, rides and entertainment offer something for people of all ages. Whether you are travelling as a couple, a group of friends or a family with young kids, Movie World is a great place to spend the day.
Movie World offers a range of themed rides celebrating some great movies. If you’re feeling game, line up for some Arkham Asylum – Shock Therapy, a fast paced ride that sees you twisting and twirling through the air. For something fun and adrenalin pumping, there’s the Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster. Bring a poncho for the Wild West Falls Adventure Ride and if you’ve got a strong stomach try the Batwing Spaceshot or the Green Lantern Roller Coaster. Or there’s the Superman Escape which travels from 0km/h to 100km/h in just two seconds!
If you’re travelling with kids, take them round to Kids’ WB Fun Zone for some cartoon fun. You just might have trouble getting them to leave again. The Kids’ WB Fun Zone has rides for kids, including the Road Runner Roller Coaster, as well as favourite cartoon characters roaming the streets to say hello.
If you’re not game on sending your stomach twirling for the entire day, you can sit back, relax and enjoy one of Movie World’s great shows. There’s the Hollywood Stunt Driver show, a fast-paced live action show demonstrating Hollywood driving stunts. There’s also Ice Age 4D, another fun experience for the whole family.
Wandering around the park throughout the day are various movie characters including Scooby Doo, Austin Powers, Batman, Marilyn Monroe and, of course, some Looney Toons favourites. These characters are more than happy to pose for your camera, making for some great photo ops. There are also street performers which sing and perform skits. And, of course, there’s the All-Star Parade; a fun parade featuring a number of characters and movie-themed floats.
Movie World offers a wide range of dining and snack options. There are places to get coffee, such as the Village Bean, and places to get lunch such as Rick’s Cafe and Dirty Harry Bar. If you’re looking for a snack, try Ben and Jerry’s or Santa Fe Sundaes.
Movie World is open every day all year round. The park opens at 10am and closes at 5.30pm.
Movie World is an easy drive along the Gold Coast Highway in the Hertz rental car you picked up at the Hertz Gold Coast Airport Car Hire. There is plenty of free parking right outside so you can park your hire car and race through the gates to enjoy the fun.
