Ok, the long-awaited (ok, maybe not long-awaited, but long overdue) post on one of the most amazing places in Gold Coast..... *drumroll please*....... MOVIEWORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, I can't be writing too much stuff if you want loads of pictures, so we'll make it less talk, more pics, ok?
We were so freaked out that the rain would spoil our day, but it turned out alright. Thank goodness. Otherwise that would've been $59 wasted!
The most awesome ride EVER!!!! The Superman Escape! Just to give you an idea of how awesome this ride is....
Did you know that sky surfers travel 0-100kms in 5 seconds? And that snow skiers travel 0-100 kms in 7 seconds? Well, the Superman Escape goes from 0 to 100kms in TWO seconds! Awesome, huh? I think the guy said we'd experience something like 4.2 G-force or something. Not too sure abt the that. 4. something la. But aside from the speed, the amount of effort they put into this ride is crazy. It has this whole story-line thing goin on. You guys should definitely try it if you get the chance. There was an unfinished Batman ride too...more on that ltr.
The Shrek store! And what appears to be Chiam's best impersonation of Shrek.
It's Wonka's Chocolate Factory! What nonsense...it's just another candy store. CheH!
But it doesn't really matter when you're with Mr. Wonka himself!
Oops, wrong picture.
Ah, there we go, me and Mr. Willy Wonka! (a.k.a. Johnny Depp impersonator)
The Harry Potter store! Can't forget abt him now, can we?
Quite a lotta fun stuff there. It's like the shop they always buy their stuff from. Can't for the life of me remember what it's called.
Oh, guess who else I saw?
Ta-da! It's the International Man of Mystery: Austin Powers!
Aren't the ninjas cool? I wanted to catch a picture with them, but only Batman and Robin came out. Sigh....too bad. I dont' even think he's a real superhero. A hero, yes. But not a superhero. Sorry, boys. You can't talk me outta this one.
Waiting at the Bugstop in LooneyTunes Village.
The Bugs Bunny wannabes
And the Superman wannabe.
What can only logically be Bugs Bunny's residence.
What are they, Justice League or something, right?
Me and my new-old car. =)
The only thing Batman seems to be good for. Cool gadgets. Say hello to the BatBoat.
Wanted to see Gotham City Hall. Unfortunately, it's not ready yet. Better luck next time. (If there ever IS a next time).
Just before the lethal weapon ride. Sorry didn't take pics of that. Looking at the thing was actually more scary than the ride itself.
Not so scary, but amazing fun! the Shrek 4D adventure! Awesome show. Can't give too much away. It'll spoil it for the potential visitors!
Looks cool, ya? Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to try this ride. Oh well....I figure it's not much better than Sunway Lagoon.
As much as I want to say this ride was sucky, it was in fact, surprsingly AWESOME!!!!! It was really, really cool. Apparently the show was actually shot here.
Check out the gargoyles..... they're a lot scarier in the dark.
My knight in shining armour come to save me from ghosts?
Unfortunately there was no saving, and nothing to be saved from anyway. Oh well.
Now for The Police Academy Stunt Show! These guys are hilarious!
The driving in this show was pretty awesome. All the drifting skills. Chai-Chai, you would've enjoyed this show.
In case you can't tell, there's a man in his boxers in that little box hanging there.
That chopper was in the air for like 5 seconds before getting blown up. hehe...hilarious show. The cops there are real dingbats. They only caught the baddies based on sheer luck! hahaha!
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Sigh...I left a happy (and broke) tourist.
(Check out the size of the black bag containing all the wonderful gifts for my friends back home. See? I think abt u all!) If there's ever a chance, I don't mind another trip back here. *Sighs happily*
