Movie World Gold Coast

We went to Movie World on our 3rd day in Gold Coast. Bus TX5 took us from the hotel bus stop all the way to the doorstep of Movie World.The bus ride only cost us AUD4.20 per person!

The journey took about 30 minutes from Caville Avenue; and the theme park was completely deserted - of course, we had arrived at 8.40 AM, when they are only to open at 10 AM!. The ticket counters were still closed, so we had our own-made grilled tuna sandwiches while busy taking photos till they are open.

Single park or two? En Arip making last minute decision at the ticketing booth...

Owh! We got a bit disappointed!


Btw, we still managed to have fun!

The Superman Escape rollercoaster! One of my favourite rides at Movie World!

Next, the Batwing Spaceshot ride! En. Arip enjoyed this so much! This is his 3rd round!



Image hosting by Imageshack.us
There they go!

Unexpected fun! I tought the Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster would be just child-play, but I was wrong! It was a full-fledged indoor rollercoaster that was much fun!!!!



Image hosting by Imageshack.us
Bought these photos of our rides... hehehe... On the left - The Superman Escape, and on the right, The Scooby-Doo indoor Spooky-coaster

En Arip was looking forward to the Lethal Weapon killakoasta* but it wasn't open! *Killakoasta - that's En Arip's original word!

Chocolate time! Just to tone down the adrenaline.

En Arip was dying to meet Shrek... He waited here for almost 20 minutes!



Image hosting by Imageshack.us
En. Arip was the only person who managed to drag Shrek out for a photograph!


All the cartoon/film characters won't hang around very long at the theme park. As soon as they appear, u must line up for your pic with them. BTW, they only stay for 5 minutes everytime! In that very short time, u have to snap your pic real fast! We were so lucky to have our pics taken with almost all of the characters! Only the Looney-toon gang was just too elusive for us!

Here are some pics!

Trying to save time by posing with four superheroes at the same time... Lady next to me was Wonderwoman...



Image hosting by Imageshack.us
... the very SAME lady who posed with En Arip in this 1993 pic! Meaning, she has been playing this character for the past 15 years! How could she deny it when En Arip asked her if she was the same lady!

This shot was very memorable for En Arip...

... of course, he had a photo taken there 15 years ago! The shot on the right, taken also 15 years ago, featured the Joker and Catwoman...

The carousel at the kids' section...



Image hosting by Imageshack.us
Psssttt!!! En Arip was DENIED entry on this ride. And you are wondering why??? This is the KIDS' WB FUN ZONE, that's why!

I find this red clock so interesting...

Hi Fiebie~~
En Arip is a kid within. Put him in a theme park, he will be totally happy. He is a sucker for rides and anything fun. Too bad we don't have many of those in Malaysia! hehehe
