Thrill-seeking your way around the Gold Coast
If there's one thing the Gold Coast is famous for (apart from its iconic beaches), it's the wide variety of theme parks dotted all throughout the region.
Whether you're a marine animal enthusiast, an adrenaline junkie or a film aficionado, there's something for everyone to enjoy - so if you're wondering what to do on the Gold Coast, why not drop by a few of the area's much-loved theme parks?
Dreamworld and Warner Bros. Movie World
Immerse yourself in many different 'worlds' when you visit Dreamworld and WhiteWater World. Catch Madagascar's own King Julien at the Theatre in the Wild, or scare yourself silly at the majestic Tower of Terror II.
Those who don't like waiting around for their ride might want to look into the Q4U virtual ride queuing system, which lets you use your smartphone to jump the line.

At Movie World, indulge in some Hollywood magic with stunt shows, rollercoasters and more. Hang onto your seats on the Superman Escape as the Man of Steel takes your carriage from zero to 100km an hour in just two seconds, or get in on the action with the 3D interactive Justice League ride.
With plenty of holiday accommodation options nearby, getting there is easy.
Sea World and Wet'n'Wild
If you don't mind getting wet and splashing around during your theme park visit, make sure you stop by Sea World or Wet'n'Wild!
Visit the friendly dolphins at Dolphin Cove, experience the prehistoric on Dinosaur island or see the brand new polar bears that have just set up home at Sea World - animal lovers will be in heaven here, and there's plenty of heart-stopping rides to experience as well.
Wet'n'Wild is a giant water park that's great for all the family. Visit Calypso Beach and Buccaneer Bay, experience the thrill of the Constrictor and the River Rapids or take a trip down Mammoth Falls for a white-water rafting experience you won't forget.
