It has been awhile since the last TLC Travelog on my Gold Coast Trip last February 2014. I can only blame that on the fact that I was too lazy to edit and choose the pictures from the trip.
Anyway, here goes…
Our group’s itinerary for the 3rd day in Gold Coast was to enjoy ourselves at the Sea World!
There were various shows running at different time slots throughout the park. Since we were in a large group, our tourist guide advised us to watch all the shows first before exploring the park on our own.
It was typical of us, the Top Leaders Circle, to defy our tourist guide and sempat pose everywhere before the poor guy had to rush us to the auditorium.
The first show of the day was the Fish Detectives Sea Lion Show which runs daily at 10:15AM and 2:30PM. It was about cheeky sea lions ‘Buddy’ and ‘Clawde’ and ‘Big Al Baloney’ in a fishy tale.
They actually sell this thirst quenchers at AUD15 per bottle, which is refillable throughout the day in Sea World and Movie World.
There are also snow cones, which is a welcome in the hot summer weather in February.
The next show that we saw was the Imagine Dolphin show that runs at 11:15AM and 3:30PM daily.
After the superb dolphin show, we break for an all-you-can-eat buffet fish and chips lunch at the Sea World Resort Restaurant.
After the heavy lunch, we headed towards the final show in our agenda, The Jet Stunt Extreme, which features some of the world’s best jet ski performers. We took the Sky High Skyway from the resort toward the main entrance where the jet ski was to be performed.
Right after the show, we split up into smaller groups to explore Sea World! Sambil jalan we bumped into Patrick and of course we didn’t miss the photo opt when we see one.
Next it was the time to feast the thrill seekers in us. We jumped on most of the rides, but this one, the Storm Coaster, left us with 1001 memories. Ada yang dah nak naik tetiba nak pegi toilet la, ada yang memang kecut perut from the start la, ada yang pura-pura takut la… and many more…
This picture says is all….
We survived the ride!!!
Before we left, we made a pit stop to the Shark Bay where you can actually touch the sharks! No, I didn’t have the guts to even get into the capsule.
Most pictures are courtesy of CDM Al-Faath as all my pictures in my phone got wiped out when my phone went dead a few month after the trip (another reason why I delayed the update).
We had to rushed back to the hotel early for the day to clean up for the Gala Dinner that very same night. Will update about the dinner separately.
