Holiday on the Gold Coast 2007!
Beep. Beep. Beep, rang my alarm clock at 5:15am on Wednesday 19th September. “Aww”, I groaned as my alarm clock sounded. “Sarah are you awake”, Moaned Danielle.
You may be wondering why we had to get up this early. It’s because we got booked on a really early flight to go to Australia. 6 o’clock to be exact.
I was too nervous to eat anything so I eventually decided on eating the tasty airplane food. To some of you it may taste like soap, but surprisingly I’ve got used to airplane food, mostly because of all our overseas trips, which started when I was nine months old.
5 hours later after a stop in Sydney we were heading towards our hotel in Surfers Paradise. It was my first trip to the Gold Coast, so I was very attentive to what the surroundings were like.
After a good nights sleep I awoke to the sound of a Crow, screeching away.
I was ready for a trip to Dreamworld! This was the first out of the four theme parks we decided on going to. I was so hyped up that day. As soon as we arrived inside the gates, my mum asked,”where should we go first?”
“Nick Central”, Danielle and I answered back. The first ride I went on at the Dreamworld was the Rugrats Runaway Reptar Rollercoaster. This ride was about 30 seconds at the maximum, where you seat in seats, with your legs dangling down. It was also the first rollercoaster I’d ever been on. After we had seen everything there was to see at Nick Central we went to Tiger Island. The Tigers and their Keepers/Trainers put on an amazing show showing, the tigers natural habitats and behavior. It was amazing and by the end of the show the whole audience was applauding till their hands ached. Once the show was finished we went on the River Rafting ride and the Log Flume which we got wet on both of the rides!
Then we made our way over to the massive Rollercoaster called the cyclone. I didn’t want to go on it but my Mum and Dad said they would pay me $10 if I was to go in it. After a good hour thinking about it I finally decided to have a go. The line wasn’t very long. But as we got closer to the start of the line I got more nervous, I was terrified. I sat next to my mum. The Cyclone was full of twists, loops, drops and turns, something my stomach did not like. But I went through with it, and I was so proud of myself!
The next day we decided to go to Movie World! As soon as we entered the giant gates I knew that I’d like this theme park. We were the pretty early so Danielle and I immediately wanted to go to the Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster. I was asking Danielle heaps of questions while we were waiting in line for the ride. She had been to Movie World before and been on most of the rides. But Danielle wouldn’t tell me because it would ruin the surprise! It turned out to be awesome, you even go backwards. Danielle and I were screaming the whole time just for fun. As soon as that ride was over Danielle recommended going on the Wild Wild West. It was a log flume but better. The last part of the ride before you get off is a massive drop, which makes a huge splash. After that we went to the Loony Tunes kid’s park. We went on a boring as ride at first. But while the line was short for the Road Runner Rollercoaster we jumped in the line. Danielle and I ended up going on at least 6 times one after another. We also went on the awesome Shrek 4-D adventure. We also went to this great stunt show. It was so cool and in one bit there was a massive ball of fire and you could fell the heat all the way from the back! Then we had our yummy lunch. Later we hopped in line for the Batman Simulator ride. It was cool. You actually felt like you were part of what was going on, instead of just sitting there. My Dad wanted to go on the Super Man Escape ride and so did Danielle, but she was too short. We waited for half an hour for my Dad to come out. We saw him and he looked like he had enjoyed himself, he had a smile from ear to ear. Then we went home to our apartment.
On Saturday we went to Sea World. We were there really early so we went over to the Corkscrew Coaster. Danielle needed her shoes. I tried to throw them up to her but it didn’t work, I eventually did one almighty throw and they went over her head and onto a railway track at Sea World. Eventually a man came and took her shoe of the railway track. A dolphin show was on at around 11:30 so after the rollercoaster we went to get seats. The Dolphin show was amazing. They did neat as tricks without being forced to do them. We also went to two other shows called Water Ski Wipeout and Fish detectives, but they both were really American and Corny. Later when the sky was turning gray my Dad, Danielle and I went on two rides, the Log Flume, which was really boring and a cool as one called the Bermuda Triangle. As we got of the Bermuda Triangle it started to pour down with rain so we left.
On Sunday we went to the Carara markets. I got a few things from there and in the afternoon we had a swim in the Resort pool.
The next day we went to Wet’n’Wild. It was a hot and sunny day, which was really good. We went on heaps of Water rides but my favorite ride was the Mammoth falls. You climbed up heaps of stairs, and then you go down a Massive slide in a big ring.
On Tuesday we just chilled out and went to the shops. I brought a really cool T-shirt and we had a Baskin Robins ice cream. We had a relaxing swim in the resort pool to.
On Wednesday we went back to New Zealand and arrived at 11:00!
That was my holiday on the Gold Coast!
