    Default Gold Coast theme parks

    Just a quick one, we r in the goldy with DS 2.5 and are thinking of going to a theme park, which would u recommend?

    Movie world
    Dreamworld

    I can't go on any rides as I'm pregnant and DS will be scared on most of them I would say. He is not even find of the tea cups... He also doesn't really know any of the Warner brothers characters?

    Is it worth it?

    What else is there to do for a toddler?

    There's currumbin wildlife sanctuary at currumbin. Dreamworld would be my pick of the two for that age. I think they ave a nickolodian kids area that might appeal as well as tiger cubs.

    Hi, we found sea world the best for toddlers as they have a few rides specifically for toddlers but if they don't like them there are all the animal shows which our toddle(3yrs) loved. Have heard that the wiggles part at dreamworld is great, we haven't been as it is quite expensive when only using one part of the park. Movieworld, haven't been for years so no help sorry. Have a great holiday.

    Dreamworlds would definitely appeal more to a young one of that age. They have a wiggles section and the Nic one too.there is also the train and the boat and you can go over to the animal section which is great. My 3 year old nephew loves the old time cars as well.

    Hmm..movieworld has a fair selection of kids rides that even my super-wussy DS at about that age would go on.
    They have shows and things on throughout the day too.

    We only recently went to movie world again and found it quite disappointing. The kids didn't want to go on most of the rides. The shows aren't that interesting. The animals only take a few minutes to see.
    The kids wanted to leave after a couple of hours. It was such a waste of money.

    There is so much hype built up over theme parks. They really aren't that exciting. Maybe suss out the days programme online and see which one is more appealing to you?
    Something else to consider is the amount of rides and attractions that will be closed that particular day.

    Dreamworld for sure. Can easily spend the day there. Movieworld has gone downhill for children in my opinion
