Have a Fun October at these Gold Coast Theme Parks

September 30, 2022

Theme parks are the ideal destination for a family holiday. The best place to visit is the Gold Coast, home to world-class theme parks that offer more than just rides but also unique encounters and annual events.

So you should plan a family trip to the Gold Coast this October because the theme parks are jam-packed with events you’ll want to attend.

Spring Country Fair & Happy Halloween at Dreamworld

Dreamworld is one of Australia’s favourite theme parks, offering numerous rides and attractions, food, beverage, retail outlets, and daily entertainment shows. Dreamworld has helped millions of families create happy memories that will last a lifetime for the past 40 years.

Dreamworld is a theme park and a wildlife conservation park, housing a diverse range of animals, including their famous Tiger Island – the only place on the Gold Coast where you can get up close and personal with Tigers!

But wait, there’s more! If you visit between September 17 and October 9, you can catch their Spring Country Fair. Dreamworld’s Spring County Fair brings back the much-loved Belinda’s Barnyard Buddies petting zoo, spring-themed entertainment, American-style eats, show bags, and even an extraordinary performance from Shannon Noll, in addition to everyone’s favourite rides, slides, wildlife, and entertainment.

Then, on a specific night in October, you can have a Happy Halloween. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the spooky season after dark at Dreamworld, with spooktacular entertainment, enjoyable food, rides at night, trick-or-treating, and more!

Explore Count Kenny’s Mystery Mansion, a laser-lit indoor walkthrough experience with no frights or enter the Kids Haunted Hay Maze instead!

Fright Nights at Warner Bros. Movie World

Warner Bros. Movie World features Looney Tunes characters and DC Comics-themed rides, attractions, and shows. But in October, evil returns to Movie World.

Fright Nights is their annual Halloween event. Five horror precincts – Purgatory, Reaper County, Pain Street, Kill Eye, and Viral – are open from October 1 to 29. But be cautious because each of these provides a moderate thrill. You can also conquer five mazes if you are brave enough to enter the IT Maze, Death Row, The Conjuring Maze, Zombieland: Double Tap Maze, and Doll Haus Maze.

So, what kind of maze will it be? Or, do you prefer to enter the Panic Room? There are also thrilling rides. Six DC character rides are ready to provide moderate to extreme thrills. 

Spooky Nights Sea World

Sea World is not only a theme park but also a marine mammal park and an oceanarium. If your children enjoy the ocean, they will enjoy it here. The park also hosts Spooky Nights from October 8 to 29.

Ghostly Groove Plaza, Monster Mansion, Black Lagoon, Shipwreck Bay, Nickelodeon Land, and Pirate Grotto are the six precincts to visit. Don’t be afraid to explore because each precinct offers something unique. It’s going to be a night of ghastly good times!

Don’t miss the Monster Mayhem Lightshow or the Affinity Dolphin Presentation in the evening. Of course, there will be spooky activities for everyone to enjoy, such as the Ghostly Groove Dance Floor, SpongeBob ScaredyPants Meet & Greet, and more.
