Movie World is one of a solid string of theme parks on the Gold Coast and is probably the best when it comes to overall theming (a sort of mini-Universal, like its cousin park in Germany). It also has the two best coasters in Australia, both of which feature well-done dark-ride sections: Superman Escape and Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster. Where the park falls down a bit is a lack of attractions that families can do together (most of the rides for kids are grouped in one Looney Tunes-themed area). It could also use one or two more big attractions to make it more of a full-day park. Still, Movie World is a lot of fun and definitely worth visiting.
Hi all. My first post here. But I\\\'m a regular rider who mainly goes to Dreamworld.
So, first time at movie world today, late arrival. First impressions. Easy to deal with staff. Very helpful. Less messing around than at Dreamworld.
So, into the park and first impression is lots of retail, but way more choices for food and such than Dreamworld. It\\\'s a much more modern park.
So, the rides..... I went on a pretty quiet day. But the lines for the rides were long, and very hit and miss. Walked straight onto the green lantern, but got off to see a massive line. Superman line was 40 mins, to be expected , but a great ride!
Scooby was kids ride, but actually very good! More ride reviews to follow! Riding again tomorrow! :)
Movie World could use another big attraction or two to put it over the top, but as it stands this is a solid park with good theming and Australia's two best coasters: Superman Escape and Scooby-Doo's Spooky Coaster. (Both these coasters have well-done dark-ride sections.) Wild West Falls is a good, heavily themed flume ride (could use a little TLC, though), and the Batman simulator is fun (but note that its preshow also has a preshow--you'll be there awhile). The stunt-car show is a pleasant surprise; although it comes across as a knockoff of the show at Disney's studio parks, it's better paced and quite entertaining. It's definitely worth taking time off from the beach to visit Movie World.
Although lacking a little with sheer number of coasters, the ones Movie World has make up for it! An excellent themed Intamin accelerator and a perfectly themed Wild Mouse! What more could you ask for? An SLC with a bonus helix! With great theming as far as SLC's go. Great park, with great staff, and a good mix of coasters :)
Wow, what a nice little park. It has shows, flats, and coasters...AWESOME coasters. And not to mention the log flume that's just as good as Splash Mountain! Scooby Doo's spooky coaster will be a HUGE surprise for those who have never ridden it before; quite the long ride, with a pretty much pre coaster and post coaster ride. Tons of surprises. Also, they have the Intamin Rocket coaster!
