Dreamworld is one of the Gold Coast's favorite theme parks — with an Aussie twist. In addition to a thrilling lineup of roller coasters, live shows, and movie characters, the park hosts many native Australian animals and offers close-up experiences with crocodiles, tree kangaroos, and dingos. You can even sign up for a sunset safari and come face to face with endangered big cats at Tiger Island. Other highlights at this popular park include a virtual reality aboriginal corroboree experience with storytelling, song, and dance, and every toddler's favorite — Wiggles World.
If time permits, you can bring your swimsuits and pop next door to WhiteWater World, an extravaganza of waterslides and splash pools. Check the website for special offers and combination tickets.
At Warner Bros Movie World, kids can come face to face with superheroes, ride roller coasters, see stunt shows, and immerse themselves in fantasylands on 3D interactive rides. Little ones will love the kids' Fun Zone with colorful rides and Looney Tunes characters, and the parades on "Main Street" are also a hit.
Many of the rides here are for older kids and have strict height restrictions. Favorites including the hair-raising DC Rivals Hypercoaster, the Doomsday Destroyer, and the Green Lantern Coaster. You'll also find new additions here. At Aquaman - The Exhibition, you can explore costumes and set pieces from the film, and the Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster Next Generation, keeps you on the edge of your seat with high-tech special effects and surprises.
If you are planning a theme park tour of the Gold Coast consider purchasing a combination pass, which allows access to multiple parks at a discount.
