Get some THRILLS this weekend!!

Looking to do something a little different this weekend? Why not make a day trip down to the Gold Coast and seek some thrills at our amazing theme parks! You might have heard of some of them, or perhaps this is your first time. Either way, they are a load of fun, and definitely should be at the top of your Aussie Adventure To-Do List! Take a look below at the different parks you can choose from.


Dreamworld:

Dreamworld is the biggest theme park in Australia, with over 40 different rides and attractions. When driving to the Gold Coast from Brisbane, it is the first theme park you can see; the iconic Tower of Terror acting as a landmark. Dreamworld is packed full of roller coasters and is a favourite for all the thrill-seekers. They have also just opened their brand new Tiger Island, that offers an up close experience with our stripey furry friends.
Opening Hours: 7 days a week: 10am Р5pm.

Movie World:

Known as Hollywood on the Gold Coast, Movie World brings you a spectacular movie-themed amusement park, that everyone¬†will enjoy! Do you love superheros? Enjoy various attractions that include the favourites – Spider Man, Batman, The Green Lantern and more! There is even a Hollywood Parade that happens daily, and is super fun to watch! Movie World doesn’t have as many thrill rides as Dreamworld, but it still makes for a fun day out!
Opening Hours: 7 days a week: 9:30am – 5pm.

Wet ‘n’ Wild:

What better way to cool down this Summer than to spend the day at one of our water parks?! Wet ‘n’ Wild is a large water park right next door to Movie World. Challenge the tidal waves in the wave pool, relax in a ring tube in the self spinning whirlpool or have a go on the various giant slides around the park. I recommend taking your own food and water to keep hydrated, as prices inside are quite expensive. So why not take a picnic and soak up the summer sun with your mates?!
Opening Hours: 7 days a week: 10am – 5pm.

Sea World:

Sea World has been on the Gold Coast since 1971, and was the first major theme park to get built on the Gold Coast. If you love your wildlife, especially our scaly¬†friends, then this is the place for you! There are daily shows, which includes¬†sea lion tricks and dolphin games. You can even go swimming with the dolphins and get a photo taken with them! For those of you looking for the adrenaline rush, don’t worry, there are plenty of rides and roller coasters¬†to keep you busy.
