Hall of Justice
Enter the Hall of Justice and fight with the Justice League to battle the evil villain Starro. You will be in a transportation pod that sits 4. Armed with laser guns and 3D glasses , you are ready for battle after a briefing from Cyborg.

This ride was pretty similar to the 'ride and shoot' rides found in other parts. The 3D and the Justice League theme gives it a legs up and will please DC fans. A pretty mild rides that anyone above 90cm can ride

The Star Parade may not be as glamorous as Disney shows, but with the presence of Catwoman and Batman, it does trill the little ones.

Other Rides
Adult rides in Gold Coast
For the adults and older kids, up the trill factor with Superman Escape, Arkham Asylum, Batwing Spaceshot and Green Lantern Coaster. Most rides require at least a minimum of 140 cm so younger kids would not be able to be on it ( unless you have a very very tall kid)

Don't forget to buy your souvenir while you are there.Our personal favourite souvenir from theme parks are the popcorn buckets unique to each park.
Zooming into Movie World
A day in Movie World is probably not enough , we recommend you to get the VIP Magic pass for unlimited entries during your stay for up to 3 or more attractions. Depending on the deal, you can get one that is just AUD 10 more than a normal ticket to a single attraction. We got our tickets from Experience Oz that added an additional attraction for bonus.

Worth every cent!
