Movie World

Movie World is open from 9:30am to 5pm everyday except Christmas Day, December 25th and Anzac Day on April 25th, and it should definitely be on your short list for a visit during your stay in Brisbane.

As the name says, this theme park is a movie themed park. It has six big rides for the risk takers in your group and they're fairly close together so you don't have to walk far to get on them. During school holidays and particularly in the summer, there can be long lines so be prepared.

The six thrill rides include:

Arkham Asylum

Superman Escape

Batwing Space Shot

Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster

Wild West Falls Adventure Ride

Green Lantern Coaster

And there is plenty for the kids to do as well.  

The park also has a Kid's Zone with rides aimed at younger kids and it there are regular visits from their favorite Warner Brothers movie characters. During the day, there's also a 'character' parade down the main avenue.

There are several rides suitable for children (the Justice League Ride and the Road Runner Roller Coaster) and they can learn to drive and tear it up along their own mini kid sized version of main street in the Junior Driving School!

For those not joining the kids on the rides, there are plenty of places for parents to eat and relax.

If you're there on a hot day, or you just need to sit for a while, there are indoor, air-conditioned theatres screening 3D movies for you to enjoy while you have a rest.

There is also plenty of family fun, with Main Street entertainment, movie theaters running 3D movies and live Stunt Driving Shows.  Or you could join in on the Rio 4-D or Looney Tunes 4-D experiences, with great story lines and moving seats that move, tilt and jar with the action so that it feels like you are really experiencing the journey!

You never know who you will see wandering through the park.  Apart from Looney Tunes Characters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, you may also see Batman and Cat Woman, Austin Powers, Marilyn Munroe, the Flash or the Green Lantern!

There's also plenty of movie themed food and drinks for sale throughout the park and to finish your day, plenty of merchandise for souvenirs. Visit their site for the most up-to-date information on Movie World.
