Were those baby penguins on that island?

Awwwww (if it was).

And interesting that they release 'trains' of cable car buckets
going both directions.

Hey TPR!

My Australian adventure hasn’t finished yet! Traveling the Gold Coast goes on and this time I’m showing you Dreamworld!, Australia’s BIGGEST theme park on the Gold Coast!
We went there on two separate days, because our first day was messed up due to weather conditions! Yes, Australia isn’t as sunny as it is advertised around the world. However, we made the best of our visit to this amazing park! During our first day, we had their Fast Pass system, which was a kind of Qbot on your smartphone, so you had to reserve a spot for every ride and then show the ride operator your reservation. Since it was raining all day long, it wasn’t really worth it, but we benefited of it and rode all the rides multiple times. A big compliment to the park for not shutting down their rides due to rain. Everything was still open, so we could ride and ride and ride and ride. It wasn’t that kind of a pleasure, but hey we’re theme park enthusiasts so where’s the problem? We bought some ponchos, which was the best idea ever. By the end of the day we also bought a new shirt, because our clothes were literally drenched. We decided to spend the rest of our first day at the water park, because we were soaked and hey it’s a water park! White Waterworld is right next to Dreamworld and their lines were actually longer than the ones from the rides at Dreamworld.

During our second day we had perfect weather conditions! We rode everything again and even visited the zoo where we were able to see Kangaroos and hold a Koala! Guys, if you’re ever going to Dreamworld, you HAVE to hold a Koala. It’s the only place where it is legally allowed to hold a Koala in Eastern Australia as far as I know. It’s definitely not allowed in New South Wales, but when I visited Adventureworld in Western Australia, it was allowed. I even got an Aboriginal face paint! It was a really fun day!
Unfortunately, their Motocoaster was down for mechanical reasons, which is why I have to go back there sometime in the future to get this credit :D No, just kidding. Their drop tower was AMAZING as well as Tower of Terror! Really fun and thrilling machines!

And now, look for your beach dress and your towel, because you might get soaked! Enjoy my trip to Dreamworld!

Nice photos!
And yeah, you seem to see a lot of interesting wildlife there ;)
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Great TR! The park looks very interesting with a great collection of rides. How's Giant Drop compared to Lex Luthor?

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Thanks for taking the time to put this together! :) How were the funky special Arrow trains on Cyclone? I've always wondered how they compared to the standard ones.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

Great TR!

What is the deal with Sea World Australia? Is it owned by SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment?

I've gone pantless!

^Sea World Australia is owned by a different company than the U.S. SeaWorld parks.

Dreamworld is a very nice park, with very good animal exhibits. All it lacks is a "world-class" coaster of some kind.
