We spent Sunday in Movie World and it was absolutely fabulous. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great but it wasn't cold either. According to a tourist brouchure the Gold Coast promises over 300 days a year filled with sunshine, but we got grey weather. The first thing that met us in the car park on Sunday morning was the roller coaster we would soon learn was the Green Lantern. It is quite compact but packs a punch!
After a refreshing theme park breakfast at Arthur's Bakery we lined up for the Scooby Doo spooky ride. We weren't quite sure what we would be doing but it seemed like it would be like one of the ghost houses which I really like. The beginning of the ride was a little bland and I was feeling quite bored and disappointed. When I thought the ride was about to end, our cart was lifted in an elevator whilst swinging from side to side until we reached the top of our destination. We then fell backwards into a slump and after being turned 180 degrees we started our roller coaster descent in a dark room with only lasers as guidance. It was fantastic and a beautiful start to the day!
For our last ride we did the log ride again and it was just as good as the first time. Unfortunately we sat with heavier people this time around and got quite soaked so it was nice to go back to where we were staying and drying off. We then watched the NRL grand final with some sparkling wine before we got our beauty sleep for another big day in the theme parks. It was a fantastic Sunday!
