So as you may or may not know, I went to Gold Coast, Australia with 2 friends of mine.
When we arrived, we were taken almost immediately to Movieworld.
This ride is called the Superman Escape. It was really really fast, moving from 0 - 100 km/h in just 2 seconds! It didn't feel so scary to me because I was pushed forward and all I could see was my feet.
What's Movieworld without the people we've grown up with? And I don't mean your parents and siblings. I meant Looney Tunes, Batman, Superman, etc etc. We managed to take a picture with Batman! Actually his armour is really soft, I noticed when I shook hands with him. Imagine that! I shook hands with Batman!
Even dead people come alive in Movieworld! Towards the end of the day there was a parade of celebrities and superheroes, namely Batman, Justice League, Austin Powell, and of course,
Marilyn Monroe! I managed to take this close up pic up her when she walked past.
Then there's the famed Catwoman! She doesn't really look like the original Catwoman, but she acted out the part rather convincingly!
The next day we went for the Catch a Crab cruise. We tasted mud crabs and Sydney Rock Oysters, and all I can say for the crab is 'yummy' and 'yucky' for the oysters.
Day 4 equals Dreamworld. This tower has 2 rides, the Giant Drop, which is a scarier version of Genting's Solero Shot, and also the Tower of Terror.
This is the Tower of Terror. Can you see the coach? Basically, the coach will move very quickly along the 3 football fields wide track before being brought up the tower at a very fast speed, then it'll come plunging down back to the starting point.
This is The Claw. Basically it acts like a pendulum, swinging us high into the air, nearly reaching 180 degrees. Oh and it rotates on its own too!
Dreamworld boasts the Big 6 Thrill Rides- Motocoaster, Tower of Terror, Giant Drop, The Claw, Wipeout and Cyclone. I chickened out on the Giant Drop, but went for the other 5. Wipeout was really fun! But I couldn't get a decent pic.
The last day. Can you believe that the flight attendants waited with us to board the flight? That's really a first for me!
One last look at Coolangatta Airport and the Gold Coast sky.
Then it's wheels up and back home.
