Great pics again. The loose articles policy on Superman is pretty draconian, although they've relaxed it a bit on Green Lantern. Was Arkham Asylum open when you were there? Despite being an SLC, it's been decent since the new trains went on.

Arkham Asylum was open and it was indeed way better than with these crazy standard SLC restraints. Do you know who built them? But let's be honest, it's still just an SLC :D

^It's a Kumbak train, and from what I can gather the only decent one that company has produced to date. It's nice to be able to ride an SLC without getting a concussion, even better when the onboard audio is working!

Nice photos! Not sure if I'll ever make it out to those parks someday, but the DC/Superhero area looked quite a bit nicer than the ones I've seen at Six Flags parks.

I really liked this park when I visited with TPR a few years ago, and it looks like it's improved since then. All the Gold Coast parks are very enjoyable.

Welcome back to my Australian adventure!

After the amazing visit to Warner Bros. Movie World, it was time to go to the last remaining Sea World park in the world that I needed to visit: Sea World Gold Coast Australia! With that being said, we spent half of the day watching shows and riding their two roller coasters, the Intamin Jet Rescue and the Mack water coaster Storm Runner, which was added in 2013! Their dolphin show ''Affinity'' was the best dolphin show I've ever seen so far. They also had a monorail, which made me feel like being at WDW!

First thing in the morning was Jet Rescue and what should I say? We got stuck in the last break for about 15 minutes, but hey, it was sunny and we were able to tan! Could have been worse! The coaster layout is actually really nice and a lot of fun! I also liked their water coaster Storm Runner, which was a very good choice of Sea World I think. Since most of the guests are families, a thrill machine wouldn't have been a good decision. I must admit, my favorite Sea World parks remain Sea World San Diego for its scenery and Sea World Orlando for its rides! I don't have too many photos of that day, because Sea World also has this very strict loose article policy and everything must be in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo! If you're just into credit whoring you can literally do the credits and leave.

We spent the other half of the day at Wet'n Wild which was truly amazing! The weather at the Gold Coast was pretty CRAZY (rain, rain, rain, rain) which you will see when I post my TR about Dreamworld. When we went to Wet'n Wild, it was the first day where it was actually sunny. That's why the park was pretty crowded, but we were able to do every slide! Their slides are just amazing! For me, a student who lives in Germany, these water parks are something I don't have too much here. That's why I really appreciated riding all these slides. They're really fun! I am sorry for not having any photos of Wet'n Wild Gold Coast, but it's a water park and I didn't have a waterproof case for my iPhone. I'm pretty sure that you can browse TPR and you'll find great footage of this excellent water park!

When we went back to our hotel, we went up the Skypoint tower, which is an observation deck from where you can see the Gold Coast! It was included in the Dreamworld pass. It's pretty nice to go there and see the sundown, so I can highly recommend it, if you're into that!
