I went to Dreamworld with 1 year-old son last month. I thought it is difficult for him to enjoy a theme park, but we could enjoy more than expected.
Here is my recommendation of nice spots and rides for toddler, including weak point of Dreamworld.
ABC KIDS WORLD and WIGGLES WORLD
There is great area for kids in the center of Dreamworld. ABC KIDS world and Wiggles world contain 5 rides and 4 shows or experiences.
My son is 75 cm and 18 months, but he could ride “Big Red Car Ride” and “Play School Wheel”. (Parents or someone should accompany with him.)
MAD JUNGLE JAM
MAD Jungle Jam is present in Dreamworks experience area. This attraction has no minimum height requirement, and it is very exciting.
My son was a little bit scared, but he could grab balls and throw it into air cannons.
Corroboree area includes wildlife exhibits and Vintage Car Adventure that toddlers can ride.
There are koalas, kangaroos, emus, crocodiles, etc. I especially like wombat, she is soooo adorable!
And, Vintage Car Adventure is very nice for family with toddler. It’s like your child take you for a drive.
You can also enjoy Whitewater World in a warm season. I visit Gold Coast from 14th May to the 30th, and the water was a little bit cold.
There are many awesome slides, it have minimum height requirement, though. So my husband and I took turns riding the slides.
Also, there are some area that toddler and baby can play. My son was very excited and enjoyed. We were happy we could make him smile.
GOOD THINGS ABOUT DREAMWORLD
・Many attractions that toddlers can ride
・Nice atmosphere that makes children happy
・Many nursing rooms, changing rooms, microwaves for feeding
・Stroller rental at the main entrance
BAD THINGS ABOUT DREAMWORLD
I think Dreamworld is very nice place for family travel, but there are some weak points.
First, this theme park is too large, so it is difficult to see all attractions in one day. It might be better that you bring to or rental a stroller.
And I just want you to know that the restaurants of Dreamworld are terrible.
Among them, “Food Central” was particularly bad. The clerk’s attitude was awful, and the hot dog was completely different from their picture. It’s false advertising!
Unfortunately, Dreamworld doesn’t allow any food and drinks to be brought in the gate without specific dietary requirements.
So, I recommend you get re-entry stamps and eat out another place.
