4.4 / 5

based on 104 reviews

1 week holiday on the gold coast, mainly for theme park with my brother and his son. This unlimited pass was perfect, was able to do Wet n Wild and Movie World several time, and on the same day, because the Parks are next to each others. The quality / price is huge, with only 1 entrance in 2 parks, you already pay less then the regular local price (and the admission is much faster).

Our tour guide Glen was very friendly! The views were amazing both in the kayak and the water! Although the water wasn’t that clear it cannot be helped! You can’t do all of gods works! Fantastic experience & I would recommend again. The kayak ain’t wasn’t as hard as I thought either. Thankful for your team and your services! Thanks again!

Value for money. The theme parks were all family friendly and the prices did not blow your pockets. Myself, partner and our children absolutely loved it.

Amazing guide and tour. Really enjoy kayaking with you, would do it again!

Amazing guides. Very flexible for fitness levels and age. Beautiful area!
