Warner Bros. Movie World is a theme park on the Gold Coast in
Queensland, Australia. It is owned and operated by Village Roadshow's
Theme Parks division. After a star-studded opening ceremony on
2 June 1991, the park opened the following day. Many park attractions
are based on Warner Bros. and related DC Comics properties, including
thrill rides such as Batwing Spaceshot and Superman Escape, family
attractions such as Justice League: Alien Invasion 3D and Wild West
Falls Adventure Ride, entertainment at the Roxy Theatre and the
Hollywood Stunt Driver live show. Film characters regularly roam the
grounds to interact and take photos with guests. Each afternoon,
characters participate in a parade along Main Street. The seasonal
Fright Nights and White Christmas events are hosted annually. The park
has survived financial hardships and remains among Australia's most
popular tourist destinations. As of 2016, it receives a yearly average
of 1.4 million visitors.
