Greyhound’s Ultimate Guide To Gold Coast Theme Parks


Greyhound Blog

There aren’t too many attractions that can appeal to the entire family quite like a theme park can. From adrenalin junkies to young cartoon character-crazed children, theme parks truly do have something for everyone. And as if the rides weren’t enough to get you excited, some of the best theme parks in Australia are located on the beautiful Gold Coast. So before you start planning your trip to the glitter strip, here is our ultimate guide to the Gold Coast’s best theme parks.




The statesman of the Australian theme park scene, Dreamworld is the largest park in the country. Home to more than 40 rides, tailored to suit all ages and thrill levels this park is a must for any traveller looking to experience the best of the Gold Coast’s, even Australia’s, theme parks. If the Tower Of Terror and Giant Drop aren’t on your list of must-dos there are still plenty of less-terrifying additions to keep you busy. Attractions like Tiger Island, ABC Kids World and Flowrider offer a slightly more tame yet still tremendously fun experience for the entire family.

Dreamworld rides

Warner Bros. Movie World

If you love everything Hollywood then you will love Warner Bros. Movie World. The park is home to a range of movie-themed thrill rides and entertainment that will keep the entire family entertained, especially the youngsters. Take a break from roller coasting your way around the park to snap a picture with a cast of Hollywood’s famous faces from Tweety to Wonder Woman or enjoy the renowned Hollywood Stunt Driver show.



For those traveling with a family, Wet’n’Wild might just be the most perfect destination on offer, particularly in summer! Packed with water slides, pools and rides, there are few better places to cool off on a warm Gold Coast summers day. For the older, slightly more coordinated kids, the Flowrider is an absolute must but you can’t beat an all-in family race down the Super 8 Racer. If you can pull yourself away from the pristine Gold Coast beaches for a day, this should definitely be on the holiday itinerary.


WhiteWater World

Staying with the water vibe, WhiteWater World is a holiday hotspot, particularly in the warmer months. Designed as a branch off the mighty Dreamworld, WhiteWater world is packed with water slides, thrill rides and family-friendly attractions. Traveling in winter? Never mind, the pools are heated so although it might be a bit cool running between pools, it’ll just give you another reason to jump head first down that water slide!

It’s no secret that the Gold Coast is a holiday mecca for travelling families from Australia and around the world. While you might find it hard to pull yourself away from the beaches and glitter strip of Surfers Paradise, the Coast’s theme parks stand right up there as some of the best in the world! If you would like to start planning your Gold Coast adventure book your seat on a Greyhound Coach with services leaving Brisbane daily from as little as $15!
