Gold Coasters it’s time to travel to new heights

As locals, there are probably a handful of Gold Coast things you haven’t gotten round to doing. Things visitors to the area completely gravitate towards with utter enthusiasm. Maybe it’s one of our theme parks that has eluded you, a restaurant you’ve always wanted to visit or a hiking trail that has always had the label of ‘next weekend’. Well, one attraction you might throw in with these is visiting the SkyPoint Observation Deck atop the Q1 building. If you haven’t visited Australia’s tallest residential building, which also happens to be the Southern Hemisphere’s 2nd tallest building, where have you been?!

As it’s been a part of our skyline for close to twenty years, isn’t it about time you went and had a look for yourself, or if it’s been a while, we think it’s about time to grab yourself a date in the clouds. And there is no better time to do so than at the moment as the SkyPoint Observation Deck is offering a never-before-seen deal to draw in locals!

The locals-only offer is running now until 25th June and allows residents of South-East Queensland — and our friendly Northern New South Wales neighbours — to experience the Gold Coast from a staggering 230 metres (750 feet) above sea level. You’ll witness our backyard from a completely brand new perspective. For only $10 per guest, you’ll be hard pushed to find anything else with a comparable wow to dollar factor anywhere on our beaming coastline!

“We love our locals, and we can’t wait to welcome guests from South-East Queensland and Northern New South Wales with this incredible, limited time offer.” said Dylan Hunt, SkyPoint General Manager. “While we’ve historically seen a lot of patronage from international and interstate tourists, we realised that there are a lot of locals who have never seen the city from our perspective.”

Discounted over 50%, admission to SkyPoint Observation Deck will not only allow you to take in the natural splendour of the place we get to call home, but there’s also a full-service bistro and bar, making SkyPoint Observation Deck a perfect spot to sit back, enjoy some food and drinks — all from 77 levels above.

Locals can access the offer online or at the ground floor entry and we strongly encourage you to take it up before it’s too late. Now is your chance folks, don’t keep putting it off and allowing the tourists to have all the fun!

5 reasons to visit Dreamworld’s LEGO Store

Australia’s first official LEGO store opened at Dreamworld in early 2016 with fans lining up outside overnight to be the first to experience the magic.

They weren’t disappointed and the stand-alone store has proved popular ever since with everyone from children to adults enjoying the experiences on offer.

While there are many reasons to make the drive to the LEGO Store at Dreamworld, here are the top five:

1.     BIG LEGO

There are life-sized LEGO creations. That’s right, a LEGO genius somewhere in the world has spent countless hours putting together a seven-foot-tall Incredible Hulk, two Stormtroopers and, in honour of the Gold Coast and Dreamworld, a giant tiger, koala and blonde surfer guy. The life size models are iconic to Dreamworld and the Gold Coast were built by Ryan McNaught, here in Australia. They must been seen to be believed.

2.     MAKE A LEGO MAN

There’s a Make-Your-Own Minifigure station where, as the name suggests, guests can choose from hundreds of pieces of LEGO to put together their very own LEGO person.

3.     CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

A world famous Pick a Brick wall is a floor to ceiling, four sided structure made up of hidey holes with every colour and shape of LEGO piece under the sun. Use the wall to create a new toy or to add some extra pizazz to something you’ve already made.

4.     LOTS OF LEGO

There are almost five tonnes of LEGO pieces available throughout the store with everything from tiny Superman key rings complete with a red cape, to a stunning Disney castle with themed rooms from favourite movies.

5.     RELIVE YOUR CHILDHOOD

As an adult, it will take you back to the wonder of childhood and for the kids, a world of opportunity awaits.

Weekend sorted, get building.

HOURS: 9am to 6pm daily.

LOCATION: Dreamworld Parkway, Coomera.
