Warner Bros. Movie World theme park is located on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia and is one of the few movie theme parks outside the United States. The park opened on the 3rd of June 1991 and mixes an old Hollywood ambience with live character shows, interactive adventures, and thrill rides for young and old.
Warner Bros. Movie World is divided into five themed areas: Main Street, Kids’ WB Fun Zone, a wild west area, DC Comics Super-Villians Unleashed and a DC Comics superhero hub.
On Main Street you will find plenty of photo opportunities throughout the day with various Looney Tunes characters as well as your favourite superheroes. There is a good range of eateries and shops here as well. Down at the Roxy Theatre is the Rio 4D Experience which even the adults really enjoyed. At 10.45am the younger kids can enjoy a Looney Toons Dance Party and at 3.30pm there is an All Star Parade featuring Movie World characters including Batman, Scooby Doo & Shaggy, Bugs Bunny & friends as well as DC Superheroes and Villains.
There is quite a few thrill rides with the most extremes being the 2017 DC Rivals HyperCoaster, the tallest, longest and fastest HyperCoaster in the Southern Hemisphere, reaching speeds of 115km per hour; Superman Escape which goes from 0-100km/h in less than two seconds and Green Lantern coaster with the steepest drop in the world. WB Kids Zone is designed to keep the younger kids entertained with much smaller rides like the Looney Tunes Carousel, Sylvester & Tweety Cages, Yosemite Sam Railroad and Sylvester’s Pounce ‘n’ Bounce. There is also a Looney Tunes Splash Zone for hot days where the kids need to cool off. In 2016, a new themed area dedicated to DC villains opened where the old Boot Hill once stood. With this land came a new ride, The Doomsday Destroyer, which is a giant looping thrill ride. It also introduced an interactive experience with the figures around the area utilizing a RFID wristband.
The action-packed Hollywood Stunt Driver 2 show is performed twice daily at 11.00am and 1.50pm. If you love cars and stunts then don’t miss this extreme precision driving show as the skills of these drivers are pretty amazing.
With a large portion of its area now covered by a 43,055-square-foot roof, this park is a smart choice in bad weather.
