which theme parks are good for 13 & 15 year olds??

Hi,

We are going to GC fr 23Nov to 26Nov and my kids are 13 & 15.

1) Which 'world' will suit them better? We can do 3 theme parks while we are there, so which 3 should we choose: Movie world, dream world, wild and wet, seaworld?

2)Is membership for myfun open only to Australia n NZ's citizens or anyone can join??

3) are we too late for whale watching?

4) we are staying in Broadwater area. How is the public transport to the theme parks or should we rent a car? We do not want to spend too much on transportation.

Tx in advance to any replies :-)

Any of the theme parks are suitable for teenagers, however the biggest and badest rides are at Dreamworld.

our teenagers like Dreamworld the best, although if its hot they also love Wet & Wild or White Waterworld ( which is attached to Dreamworld)

They are all wonderful although I feel Movie World is more commercialised and not worth it if you're restricted for time. My kids are 12 and 15 and we have a 16 yr old exchange student staying and we are taking them in September definately to Dreamworld which has White Water World attached to it and possibly Sea World. Whatever you choose your kids will enjoy!

My advice would be get there early though so that you beat some of the crowd queueing for the big rides!

Cheers

My order would be:

1. Dream world

2. Wet n Wild

3. Seaworld

4. Movie world

So if you don't have time for all of them, i would skip movie world :)
