Your heart threatens to leap out of your throat. Your body goes into ﬁght or ﬂight mode. You let out a shriek that morphs into laughter—because nothing in the world beats a good adrenaline rush.
From whale watching to a hot air balloon ride, there’s no shortage of exciting things to do on the Gold Coast. But for thrill-chasers looking to maximize their trip, Warner Bros. Movie World, with its seven big thrill rides, is deﬁnitely the place to be.
Excitement starts building once you step through the Grand Archway, but if you want to save the best for last, then start off at the far end of the park. Here, you’ll ﬁnd Wild West Falls Adventure, where you’ll make your way through ghost towns and geysers. No use dodging the spray, you’re getting wet anyway! Hold on to your hat, because the spills and thrills lead up to a steep drop at speeds of 70 kph.
Dry off in the interactive DC Super-Villains Unleashed precinct nearby, and take on the monstrous Doomsday Destroyer if you dare. Watch the world turn upside down as you’re hurled round and round on the 21-meter-high twin hammer ride. Stomach-churning is an understatement.
After your head stops spinning, make your way over to Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster Next Generation for a different kind of thrill. Climb aboard the Jester Cars and journey into Mondavarious’ Castle. Experience a wild ride that features spooky surprises, special effects, and more than a few mean tricks up its sleeve.
Take your adrenaline ﬁx to the next level when you get on Superman Escape. Line up and hop aboard the Metropolis Subway. Find a handhold, because soon you’ll go from zero to 100 kph in just two seconds! Shoot straight up into the sky just like the Man of Steel on this one-of-a-kind launch coaster. It may take a while before you catch your breath.
When you’re ready, make your way through Main Street, past the Fountain of Fame, to Green Lantern Coaster. Strap in, hold on tight and get your adrenaline pumping with dizzying spins and barrel rolls—all at top speeds of 66 kph. Don’t forget to brace yourself for one of the steepest inverted drops in the whole Southern Hemisphere. Talk about a thrill that’s out-of-this-world!
Turn it up to eleven when you head across to Batwing Spaceshot. Take off at speeds reaching 73 kph and launch nearly 60 meters into the air. That’s as high as a 20-story building! Hang on to your seat (or your stomach) as you experience 3.5 gs, around the same g-force that astronauts experience during a rocket launch. End the epic ride with bungee-like bounces to help you get back down to earth.
Finally, the time has come. Get the biggest thrill of the day (or of your trip!) at DC Rivals HyperCoaster. It’s the tallest, longest, and fastest hypercoaster on this side of the world! Every drop, twist, and loop you go through serves to up the ante—including that nerve-wracking near-vertical drop from the iconic Joker head. Charge through 1.4 km of track at an exhilarating top speed of 155 kph—and for the truly daring, the seats at the end let you experience all that, but backwards.
Get your adrenaline ﬁx when you spend a day at Warner Bros. Movie World! Aside from these thrill rides, there are loads more attractions and experiences to discover. And since safety is key for any exciting experience, plan out your visit by booking your park tickets in advance. The Gold Coast fun doesn’t stop at Warner Bros.
Movie World, either—get more thrills for less with theme park combo tickets that let you into WB Movie World, Paradise Country, and Wet’n’Wild Sea World.
