Movie World

Dato' Muzaffirah Tun Ahmad Fairuz a.k.a. good ole Firah bought me some magnets from her recent trip to Gold Coast, Australia. One of them is this little cute tweety bird:

Wikipedia will tell you that Warner Bros. Movie World is a popular movie related theme park on the Gold Coast in Australia. It is owned and operated by Village Roadshow since the take over from Time Warner and is the only movie related park in Australia.

It opened on June 3, 1991.

The park contains various movie-themed rides and attractions ranging from motion simulators to roller coasters and slow river rides.

Movie World also features the only Scooby-doo film based indoor roller-coaster situated in the theme park's own studio lot. In addition, costumed character performers also patrol the park, allowing visitors the chance to take photos with them. These include Catwoman, Batman, Austin Powers and various Looney Tunes characters.

Minor street shows including skits and singing performances are also present. The All-Star Parade commences at 2.30 PM every day, and also showcases costumed characters alongside vehicles and movie-themed floats.

There are also a number of actual active film studios within the Movie World complex.

Back to Firah, the pic above is of the two of us together with our friends Shida, Aida & Yaya during the all-birthdays-lumped-in-one lunch we had earlier this year.
