We have been to Gold Coast 19 years ago, I was 4 years old then and Aiman celebrated his second birthday in Surfers Paradise. 
This time we re-visited SeaWorld, MovieWorld and some parts of Surfers Paradise again.Things have changed a lot after 19 years. 

 MovieWorld has new rides and shows but BATMAN stays FOREVER.Well, who doesn't love BATMAN? My mom told me (cos I cannot recall much)  that they used to have a show where we were allowed into a studio and they showcased how a movie was being filmed. At that time, the movie was, Batman Forever! But they don't have this slot anymore nowadays.

The old bushy trees are gone, replaced with new ones. And the Superman Escape roller coaster at the back seemed to take over the whole background. Gone are the blue skies! But surely, Superman ride is really awesome.

As for SeaWorld, we don't see the Dolphin Strollers at all during our recent visit. I really think the strollers are unique! And we cannot locate the statues of a row of cute little penguins greeting visitors near the Penguin Encounter entrance. They are no longer there. But they have shark bay and polar bear now and they are amazing.

Some trees are gone and some seemed to be replanted and amazingly, even the Walrus's mustache has turned white hahaha, dah beruban dia! Well, after all, he is 19 years older, at least.

They have changed the signboard at the back, promoting their latest roller coaster, The Storm!

Pelican beach looked greener this time around compared to 19 years ago.

Too bad we do not have enough time to re-visit DREAMWORLD. 
Otherwise, we could have locate the same places again. Well, maybe some day we will, dream on!

DreamWorld 1995:


And maybe we should revisit other countries too,
 it would be fun tracing back memories!
