Get the unless you are going on quiet days. The Tower of terror is still awesome even after 10 rides back to back :-)

Movie World


Wet n Wild


I personally found Sea World Gold Coast a bit boring, but that was over 20 years ago.

I personally liked Dreamworld and Movieworld but that was a few years ago now before I had little ones. I went to Draculas Resturant too it was great. 


If your have kids, then maybe wet n wild or Seaworld (seaworld if they are younger, because they will love all the animals). I haven't been to wet n wild before but a guy at work went there last week and said it was looking a bit dated. He said he liked Movieworld better.


If you don't have kids I rekon Dreamworld or Movieworld. If you have young kids then consider Seaworld.

dream world by far is the best for rides.


movie world and sea world for kids though.  so since the age of kids, i would suggest probably movie world (sea world for grownups is pretty dull)

Dracula's FTW.

Not kid friendly though.

Me and Wife visited most of  the theme parks last year. Our preference from top to bottom


1. Wet n Wild


2. Dreamworld


3. Movie World


4. Sea World




protip - If you are going during Australian school holidays, do buy the priority pass. We waited hour and half for the scooby doo ride at Movie World!





My own experiences last year reflect this exactly, and we had 2 kids under 6 with us.


Our only protip is that if it's expected to be 28c+ take flip flops, the concrete at wet and wild is so hot people were getting burns. Seriously.

We're heading to the Gold Coast next week for 10 days. Two families travelling together with a 4yo, 8yo, 12yo and 13yo. We're going to go to all of the theme parks.




We've got our passes and also got a bonus Dolphin trainer experience at SeaWorld. The older kids have a Dolphin experience booked which they are all excited about.
