It was a really wonderful and exciting experience. The whales we saw were playful and just as curious of us as we were of them. The staff were every informative, friendly and helpful. I will certainly go again on the whale watching cruise when I visit Queensland again.

We thought this pass was much better than any other. We could go on any day that weather was good in that 14 days and when we left movieworld and had not done all rides came back a few days later. Definitely worth the money since the worlds on their own are very pricey

We glad we did the helicopter ride bec up there we really appreciate the beauty of Gold Coast. Riding the Jetboat was really extreme experience, we loved it!!

The best and amazing experience. All enjoyed ☺️ thank you so much for everything❤ Family Khullar Nieves
