We spent most of our time in the section with all the animals. There were cute little tiger cubs in a play area, as well as fully grown tigers which put on shows - doing big jumps and climbing trees, that sort of thing. There was a section with wallabies (or were they just small kangaroos? I can never tell the difference) just sitting around that you could go up to and pet them, which was pretty cool.
We also went into the Big Brother house, which was pretty boring, especially since I don't like Big Brother. They had a nice kitchen though.
The next trip was to White Water World. This is a new water park which is connected to Dreamworld; we got a 2 day pass that you could use to go to either park on any 2 days within a month or something like that. White Water World was THE BEST part of the entire holiday! Since its all new, all the rides are better, and the park was built to save as much water as possible which is great.
On an impulse we decided we'd go to Movieworld and Wet'n'Wild too, since we had so much fun at Dreamworld and White Water World. Movieworld was heaps of fun, there were quite a few really cool rides, along with a few not so cool rides. The one that you really notice coming in is the Superman Returns ride (see pics!). This looked like a pretty good roller coaster, but when we got on we realised it was much more. You get in and the building explodes and then you hear Superman saying "don't worry I'll get you out of here" or something like that, and then Superman grabs the back of the rollercoaster and pushes you out of the building onto the rollercoaster.
Wet'n'Wild was a bit of a disappointment. After the thrills and fun of White Water World, I was expecting to have just as much fun at Wet'n'Wild, which was supposedly bigger and better. It wasn't bigger OR better! Well, it probably took up more space, but I reckon White Water World had more rides, and the rides at WWW went for longer and went faster, down steeper hills, around more corkscrews, that sort of thing. Wet'n'Wild didn't even compare. We did have a nice relaxing morning there though but left around 2pm instead of spending the whole day there like the others.
