The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.

Thank you for your understanding and patience at this really difficult time.

Warner Bros Movie World main attractions are based around movie and tv characters. There are a selection of rides, shows, parades and photo opportunities.
Movie World hosts special events such as Fright Nights and White Christmas which provide the opportunity to visit the park after dark and experience rides in the dark. Even if you aren't so interested in the theme of the event, I know my kids just LOVED going on the Superman Ride in the dark!
Just like Sea World and Dreamworld, at this Gold Coast theme park it is worth planning out your day when you first arrive.
Collect your theme park map and showtimes insert when you come through the turnstiles into the park.
Hollywood Stunt Driver (now upgraded to Hollywood Stunt Driver 2) is the main show we plan around as it is only on once or twice in a day. They open the gates about half an hour before the show, and it is worth getting in and settled, because once the show starts you cannot go in.
If I had smaller children, I would probably be more interested in the various shows and parades in Main Street Plaza, but we tend to head off to do the rides.
Wet n Wild water theme park is right next door. If you have a combo Theme Park Pass with multiple entry, you can slip into Wet n Wild to cool down after a hot day at Movie World.
Movie World attractions and rides are mostly open all day (except for maintenance, extreme weather conditions or other reasons).
The theme park rides open at 10am (gates open at 9.30am) and closes at 5pm.
If there is a nighttime event, and you have tickets, they still close the park and you have to re-enter, or they put you in a reserved zone whilst they clear the park.
On the rest of this page, you will find some photos and descriptions of some of the main rides, shows and attractions at Movie World.
JUSTICE LEAGUE: Alien Invasion 3D Ride - Expect a family friendly ride based around your favourite Justice League super heros in a battle to save the earth! This is a unique ride experience where you get to interact with your own laser blaster as you take part in the fight from your transporter pod! This should be good for most family members, from what I have seen it doesn't look too scary!

Movie World hosts some special events usually after hours in the theme park.
These events are NOT included in the price of your MovieWorld tickets.
Sometimes there are special deals run where entry to these events is included - so keep an eye out for these.
You will need to book your tickets for these separately and often ahead of time to ensure you get the date you want.
White Christmas is an after hours theme park event.
It usually runs from 5.30pm to 8.30pm on selected dates in the week or two before Christmas (approximately mid-December).
The theme park is decked out with Christmas lights, snow and Christmas themes.
Shows within the park often reflect the season festivities and there is a festive parade.
Most of the rides are open during the event. When we went the only main ride that wasn't open was Wild West Falls. Superman Ride at night was probably our favourite! Check latest dates here.
Fright Nights is based around Halloween themes and has evolved from being a family fright night based around Scooby Doo theme to being definitely more scary and more adult oriented.
I haven't been, because I really don't like anything spooky, scary or gory! However, I understand it is popular and fun if you like that sort of thing!
Enjoy the specially created mazes, shows and the rides as well as spooks around every corner! You can find more information about Fright Nights including dates here.
This should give you a taste of what you can expect when visiting Movie World. Attractions and rides not always open all the time due to scheduled maintenance and other factors. There is usually a notice at the entrance of the theme park with any scheduled closures, however, from time to time rides close temporarily during the day.
