Warner Bros. Movie World
Just for fun
The huge screen counts down to the beginning of the show: ten…nine…eight …With tyres screeching and smoking, car after car revs into the arena, spinning around in an amazing display of precision driving. Your kids slide to the edge of their seats, eyes glued to this live-action stunt show. Actors bounce onto the set, adding humour and human interest as they pretend to film an action movie. The camera view is beamed up on the screen, and the kids grin and point as their own faces appear. Then all eyes return to the stunt cars as they skid across the set on two wheels!

■ The Batwing Spaceshot – for thrillseekers! This is an extreme ride where you are launched up a 60-metre-high tower at high speed, and then dropped. The minimum height for participants is 123 centimetres.
People can organise to have parties, or even weddings, at Warner Bros. Movie World. Picture a wedding photograph with a huge Bugs Bunny posing between the bride and groom, or a birthday party in Spooky Castle, with Scooby-Doo, fire jugglers and bongo drummers for entertainment. Or how about a party in a saloon from the Western movie Blazing Saddles, complete with cowboys!
■ Hollywood Stunt Driver (described above) is very popular, so go to the morning performance or arrive early in the afternoon to avoid disappointment. If you have little kids, be aware that this show ends with startlingly loud explosions and clouds of fire.
