Dreamworld & Whitewater World @ Gold Coast ~ Day II

Started the day with breakfast at the hotel…
 
 
Seems quite alright for the first breakfast in Gold Coast, but imagine if you were to have this every morning for the next 5 days, then hmmm…. I still prefer Singapore’s breakfast menu ! :)
 

 

1st themepark of the trip ~

 

 
A vintage car…

 

A weighing scale
 
Children’s playground…
A water fountain for people to take pixs…
 
I find this the most beautiful place in the themepark…
 
As the name states, its a booth that sells HotDogs…
Thrilling Rides ~~
 
 

I did not attempt this ! But HB did. He said it’s not as fast as he imagined…

Can’t remember what is this. But don’t think it’s opened for rides.
 
 
Ok I remember this very clearly. It’s the entrance to the Tower of Terror II. The most terrifying game of all the themeparks and probably in the world as the brochure states… It travelled at 171km/hr for 7 seconds BACKWARDS !

 

 
Tower of Terror II. The carts come out from the left hand side, from darkness to brightness on a backwards basis. So unprepared for that coz everyone thought it’s gonna sweep forward. 
 
I did not attempt this as well. It’s basically a roller coaster while sitting in a motorbike position. 
 
I think this is something like the pirates ship. Where you go mid air and they swing you round and round.

 

This gets you wet !… riding on a boat and going down a slope…        
On a side note ~ although the temperature was 26-27 degerees C today but it felt like Singapore when it is more than 30 degrees C. We assume no sunblock was needed but was very wrong. Got sunburnt at this temperature. The UV rays in Aussie is no joke. So I wasn’t really keen on most of the rides because of the hot weather. 




Australian Wildlife ~~
There is a zoo inside the themepark.
 
 
The Kangaroos…
The sleepy Koala…
Is this the dog in wolf’s clothing ?
Some duckies…
Poisonous froggie…
 
Known as the Ibis. It can be found even on the streets. Mostly loitter around food places. Sounds like a pest ? But it’s a protected animal in aussie. 
 
 
Eagle – reminds me of 射雕英雄传, ok it’s not a condor, it’s just an eagle.

 

 
It’s a python. Looks so slimy and grossed !

 

I called this the “wet crocodile” and the below…
the dry one…
The 4-legged lizzies…
 
Looks so proud and haughty. But it’s a timid cat. When you run over, it will hide away in fright. 
 

Don’t know where this creature pops out from. It actually appeared in one of the outdoor sitting cafes.

The Tiger Show

 

The tigers here can climb trees ! But did not manage to capture any shots of that coz it’s too fast. Maybe I “mountain tortoise”, but I really never seen tigers up on trees before so it’s a big deal ! ^-^

 

 Busy cleaning itself…

 
 

 Tigers are cleanliness freaks !

   

 The White Tiger

     

 Jumping over the log… The Tigers here are as tamed as cats !


WhiteWater World
 This place is very much liked the swimming complex in Jurong West, Singapore.

 
 

Dreamworld and Whitewater Worlds are just beside each other. The characters theme are Sponge Bob. Hmm.. Not my favourite. Don’t find the characters in Sponge Bob cute.

 
 

What’s that hairy-chest man doing in my picture ??!!??

 
 This place is packed with much more people than Dreamworld. However, due to my toe injury, I did not attempt any of the water games. Weather was extremely hot that day, at least to me, so it wasn’t really enjoyable. ^-^

To make things worse, the transport service made a mistake and failed to pick us up when the themeparks close. We had to make our own way back to the hotel ourselves. Made a complaint and they compensate us with free return transfers for our next theme park visit. 

Ended the day with a Late Dinner at Jupiters Casino…
 
     
 Joined member at the casino and you get to dine at …
 
 
 the casino restaurant “Spinners” at member price which is half of that of public price for the…
 
 
Seafood Platter @ A$15… by the way, casino membership is free… So a real good bargain…The seafood are fresh and good…and we also ordered the…
 
 
250g of Sirloin Steak. I think the price is around A$20+.
 
Overall, great food, great prices and you can go into the casino without any levy. Heeehee. :P
