Photo TR: Warner Bros Movie World (Australia) 18 Dec 2005

Postby downunder » Mon Dec 19, 2005 7:21 pm

In summary, Warner Bros Movie World has three coasters with a fourth almost open. It has some innovative rides with great theming.

The Vekoma SLC is not bad, good first drop, usual head banging, but with a helix section added to the end which puts it above other SLC's.

The Scooby Doo has great theming, and starts out as an exciting ghost train, then you go up an elevator to a indoor wild mouse course, which starts with a backwards drop and then turns around to go through the more traditional wild mouse course.

Wild West Falls is well themed water ride with a big last drop and also a surprise indoor backwards drop during the long themed course.

The Matrix exhibit was OK, and the looney tunes section has some innovative rides. Also some good shows like Police Academy, a copy of of the Shrek 4D from Universal, and lots of other goodies. Superman Escape the Intamin rocket wasn't open yet but it looks awesome.

Two very good reasons to go to Movie World!

Me with 3 of the Park caracters, the character on the far left is Wile e Kiwi who chases sheep instead of road runner.

Intamin goodness coming very soon.

What will go on inside that building will be sure to impress even the most jaded coaster fans.

I've gone pantless!

I wanted to visit Australia after reading Bill Bryson's In a Sunburned Country. Movie World looks like another good reason.

Superman is slated to open on Dec 26th at the moment.

Wile e Kiwi in the tweety photo will be one of the people in the first train with people on it on Dec 22, though they have already put back the date twice.

The coaster is working fine and has been for a while but there is a lot of theming that interacts with the ride that they are still working on, I believe.

I love pickles. No more comments neccesary.

Go Movie World! It has to be my favourite park on the GoldCoast. And yeah Wild West Falls does kinda look like Big Thunder Mountain... from the front haha. mmm shed. But it does fit in with the theming and it is one of my fav rides at the park. Got to love that surprise backwards drop with the dips then a splash for the people in the back :lol:

Warner Bros Movie World looks way better themed than any other Six Flags park I've seen. The Police Academy Stunt Show looks awesome. You must have had a great time there. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing.

^Not owned or never was by Six Flags.


It's been owned since day one back in 1991 by Warner Bros.

Oh, I thought it was owned by Six Flags because of the Warner Bros stuff and the new roller coaster has a Superman theme. I guess I thought wrong.
