About Gold Coast Theme Parks
Drawing in millions of visitors every year from all over Australia and the world, the Gold Coast’s “famous for fun” label comes not only from its beautiful beaches and great weather – it’s the theme parks that make the “GC” a top Aussie destination for families. With 5 parks to choose from – including Dreamworld, Movie World, Sea World, Wet ‘n’ Wild and WhiteWater World – visitors are spoiled for choice. In this section, we provide details on the best value passes, maps to the parks, insider’s guides to each theme park and much, much more.
Choosing a theme park that's best for you comes down to a range of factors, however each park can be basically summed up by the following: Dreamworld is the largest of the Gold Coast's theme parks, and the king of "flat rides", with a huge number of rides to spin, slide, twirl and twist you; Movie World is the place to go for the most modern and high-octane roller coasters, as well as great shows and characters; Sea World features a nice mixture of fun and animal entertainment, while being the most educational of the theme parks; and both WhiteWater World and Wet 'n' Wild offer family fun for cooling off in the hot seasons.
