Movieworld. Was only there for about 2 hours as had done Superman, Scooby Doo and WWF. Wasn't interested in seeing HWSD or going on Leathal Weapon for the usual reasons. LTRR was closed, Batman the Ride was closed during the time of day we were there, shops hadn't opened yet so decided to go home. This was the last day we were able to go as working through until VIP passes expired. This experience has meant we had no interest in renewing the passes this year.

Seaworld san diego or legoland california. Can't remember as it was back in june. Both were pretty good parks with short wait times. Wasn't much to do at legoland apart from the miniture lands they made. Seaworld is the standard marine park I guess. Just better show than what you get here.

We had a similar day, but we did LW + HWSD since WWF was down for maintenance. It felt like an incomplete day (probably because it was) but we still enjoyed it somewhat. Still, it paled in comparison to my first couple of trips there as a kid. I'm glad we decided to get the vip pass though since I wanna go back and try Green Lantern :D

Well, I went to Luna Park Sydney some time in the past year, don't remember when. Maybe December. But it sucked anyway. Other than that, last theme park I went to was Dreamworld/WWW when at the end of 2009. Those were 2 good days.

Last Park I visited was SW about a year ago. I'd organised a conference at the Resort for about 100 Travel Agents. Arguably this was simply the best local Staff conference (we do them once a year) the company had ever arranged. Not just for the local area but Australia wide. Having contacts within VTP's certainly helped sweeten deals but the overall professionalism and organisation of our function was top notch! The majority of our guys attended a day conference at the Resort and participated in the usual Myer Briggs program along with some motivational guest speakers. The lunch organised in the waterfall cafe was a mountain of food and morning /afternoon tea was also offered for anyone still hungry. At the end of the day, delegates checked into their rooms and got dressed up in their Halloween costumes to head into the Park for the evening's themed festivities. We had 1 hour private use of Jetski rescue (served with drinks) and the spread that was put on at the Dockside tavern was something like you'd expect from a Cruise ship buffet.. I was gobsmacked! Nothing like your typical Theme Park Fare that's for sure! We ate and drank the night away and again all those assisting our evening did a truly fantastic job.. It reminded me so much of the excellant customer service standards the park's were once renouned for. The next day we had special early entry to the Park and a Marine Biologist escorted us through the Shark Bay area for a bit of a vip morning presentation. Breakfast at the Hotel followed and all delegates were offered courtesy entry to the Park to wrap things up. I won't disclose the price tag of such an event but you may very well be surprised to hear it cost a lot less than you might think! The presence of the whole event was that of upmost professionalism and such word of mouth marketing is invaluable to such a business. Shame they can't seem to provide the same standard of excellance during normal trading hours huh?

The last park I went to, was Knott's Berry Farm in January. I got an annual pass there as we were going for two days and it was cheap to get one then tickets for two days. Also the second last (which was the day before) is Universal Studios Hollywood. Also have a annual pass there as, we were going to get there two days for the price of one special, but the person working at the ticket desk said we might as well get the annual pass as it is the same price and we get 10% off everything in park. How could we refuse that.

didn't know we were including International Parks? If that's the case then Universal Singapore was my last Theme Park visit Absolutely love the place so much it deserved a 2nd visit:) If you're heading that way best to buy your ticket at the gate with a Master credit or debit card. It'll set you back a measly $50SGD or about $40AUD. They also throw in a swag of really decent retail and dining offers (ie 20%) It's just such a beautiful Park and so richly detailed that I bet they spent more money on aesthetics than they did on anything else. Rides included. Singapore is renowned for it's Park's and Gardens in Public areas so with Universal they had to raise the bar for it to really stand out. It's a photo feast for our snap happy pals and brimming with detail. Forget the rides, the biggest attraction at Universal Singapore is it's skin!
