Her interest was contagious and provided us the increase we required for the day ahead.

You see, amusement park are various now we have kids. The day appears to get LONGER and formerly it was everything about us frightening ourselves silly on the most exhilarating, adrenaline-fueled trips.

But with a 6 and 2-year-old to captivate, typically you discover yourself posturing for images with characters and compressed into a little train with your knees up around your ears.

We handled to drag Kalyra and Savannah far from the celebrations on Main Street and headed for a fast dosage of adrenalin on the GREEN LANTERN Coaster.

TheGreen Lantern is fairly brand-new to Movie World and boasts the steepest inverted drop in the Southern Hemisphere!

We ‘d been on lots of roller rollercoasters prior to however never ever one with an inverted drop. Turns out it looked scarier than it was and not as quick as anticipated. But it was the best start to get our blood pumping and all set for more action.

But our enjoyable in the “big kids” area was brief lived as we discovered ourselves for the next 2 hours in the Kids WB! ENJOYABLE ZONE.


That’s typically how it works nowadays, one flight for mummy and daddy, 5 trips for the kids.

Savannah sat enthralled by all the action. It can get a little loud on the ears if you have kids and the fireball at the end can shake off some heat.

But the abilities of the entertainers blew me away and was extremely amusing– do not miss this program!
