What an unbelievable flat ride that would have been if it materialized, shame it didn't. Looking forward to seeing what type of coaster they've got planned for 2017 too.

They also had applications in for a lakeside precinct, entertainment precinct and Hotel.


It's about time that this park begins to grow larger. I'm actually living in Gold Coast, QLD now for a bit of time, and it's apparent that this is such a tourist destination. Larger expansions would be well-received by the public.

A massive area of land at the front of the park has started being cleared.

Mack crates have also arrived on site. No track - just small crates (probably for foundations or something). Hopefully we'll be getting an announcement soon.

All this information comes from Parkz.

Today was the technical rehearsal for Movieworlds new Doomsday! and the Villians Unleashed area. All photos below are taken by Adventures of Theme Park Girl. This new area has set the bar for theming in Australian Themeparks, it looks amazing!

^They've done a really good job with that one, the theming is fantastic!

Movie World is my favorite park in Australia, and even though the new Doomsday ride doesn't appeal to me (or my stomach), it looks great--as does their Villains Unleashed zone.

To kick off this Photo TR, here is how my journey from Ohio to Australia came to be!

I met one of my best friends/mates Jack while working crazy hours at Magic Kingdoms Enchanted Tiki Room & Aladdin's Magic Carpets during my Disney College Program Jan-May 2015. Jack is from Australia and was doing Disney's International College Program Jan-June 2015. 200 bird shows later it was time to drive back home, to work at Kings Island in Cincinnati Ohio. I was able to show the "Aussie Boy" around the states on the drive home stopping at Carowinds for the new Fury325 and finally getting to Kings Island to show off my park I would always compare and contrast our experiences at Disney too. Before he had to fly back to Orlando to finish his final month working for the mouse.

Working that season at KI I was able to save a little from each paycheck to afford the trip down under. As soon as Kings Island closed for the 2016 season I hopped on a plane for Melbourne and the 3 week journey began. Alot was planned for this trip consisting from Sydney, Gold Mines, Australia Zoo, Great Ocean Road, and of course the Aussie Theme Parks. We had a week in the Gold Coast during the middle of my trip visiting Sea World, Movie World, Wet'n'Wild but no Dream World. When you have an opportunity to go to Australia you have to take it!

We went to Movie World 3 times during our 8 day trip along with Jacks family.

So here is my first Photo TR with lots of photos.

Out of the 8 days staying in the Gold Coast we only had 1 day to ride Scooby Doo before it went down for annual rehab.

Super excited to ride this attraction.

Those trains!!

The themeing was very surprising how detailed and how to looked just like the movie. The Scooby Doo Movie was filmed in the neighboring sound stages.

After Scooby and proceed down the midway to find the closed Doomsday Destroyer. Which had JUST opened in October for there Halloween event and was "Closed for scheduled maintenance from Monday October 31st and re-opening on Monday 12th December" It just seems very strange.

The themeing for this attraction and surroundings was absolutely fantastic even with the ride being closed I really liked how the park still let you walk around all the character displays.

I think Wild West Falls ended up being my favorite attraction at the park due to the immense themeing, long cycle, backwards section and an acceptable amount of wetness.

Fire was cool, but the show was lacking something. I do like how its something different and something you don't find at nearly any park.

In my opinion one of the most photogenic coasters, Some of my favorites include Rougarou, Vortex, Corkscrew

This was by far my favorite SLC. In fact we rode it multi-able times over our 3 visits to movie world. I was shocked, it features the same restraints as Kentucky Kingdoms T3. Biggest difference is the angle of the seat on Arkham you sit at a angle vs T3 where you sit practically flat. The back rides the smoothest.

Scooby was down for rehab at this point, the back door was open showing off the elevator lift system and where they remove trains off the track.

Thanks for the report. I like this park quite a bit, and would like to visit it again someday. Nice photo of Superman soaring over the Christmas tree.

I wonder if the new coaster at Movie World Australia will be at all similar to this coaster https://rcdb.com/13796.htm
