I'm gonna be in Gold Coast in a couple of weeks, but I'm not going to be there for a very long time. Weather permitting, would I be able to knock out Movie World, its water park, Dreamworld, and Sea World in two days?
Living in Michigan is awkward, because we passionately hate Ohio, but we always have to follow that statement up with "But Cedar Point is pretty cool. And Kings Island." 75 coasters and counting...
^If you're only interested in getting the credits, you will be able to see all of those parks in 2 days! Movie World is right next to Wet'n Wild which is why I recommend doing those two! The next day, you could go to Sea World, get those two credits and drive to Dreamworld!
On our way back to Sydney, we passed Coffs Harbour where they have a toboggan. It doesn't count as a credit, but it's super fun since it is in the middle of a banana plantation. You had to sign a paper confirming that you will ride on your own risk! They also have a candy shop where they make candy in front of you! It's super interesting and fascinating to see! The smell is incredible and they also give you samples of it!
When we were back in Sydney, it was time to check out downtown Sydney, which means more credits! Sydney has Luna Park where you ride this old Wild Mouse, which is super fun! I got on the ride and thought I didn't not need to hold on, but the airtime was INSANE! Like seriously, it was one of these surprisingly good rides! Thumbs up for that! We also did their free fall tower which was amazing. when we were going up, we realized that the tower was actually higher than it seemed to be! Apart from these two rides, we were not riding anything else just because I knew all the other rides from fun fairs in Germany. We decided to explore downtown Sydney and go up the Sydney Tower Eye from where you have an amazing view of Sydney!
If you're looking for some really nostalgic coaster, this is your update! I went to the Blue Mountains where you can find Orphan Rocker or at least what has been left over. This coaster was constructed in 1988, but it has never opened to the public! To me, it's one of those mysterious coaster failures that are quite fascinating! I mean, a coaster got built, but it was never opened. Isn't that crazy? The coaster is still along the mountains, covered by trees and leaves. I asked an employee about the coaster, because there are actually no signs about its history or anything, and he told me that they're working on fixing it and replacing it by a new one within the next couple of years. I'm not sure if they had been discussing this project for a longer time though! Let's wait and be surprised! The setting would be amazing for a new coaster! However, the coaster was not the main reason to go there! There is Scenic Skyway with which you ride between the cliffs, the Scenic Railway, which is really really steep, and the Scenic Cableway that takes you up the mountains. It's quite a thrilling experience! Not only can you use that kind of transportation as many time as you want, but you can also hike up there! It feels like being in the rainforest with all the birds tweeting and just being in Australia! A very unique not theme park related experience!
