    If you love to people watch then this is the place - so much to see and if you’re lucky sometimes this time of year you may even spot a whale or two !
    Well patrolled and we always find the lifeguards friendly and informative

    The Observation Deck speaks for itself. We have been on previous occasions. Magnificent and spectacular views. This time we decided to do the buffet breakfast which is only slightly dearer that just doing the Observation Deck on its own. What a find. A buffet breakfast on the Gold Coast for under $44. I thought it would be a limited buffet but I was wrong. It was a full buffet with hot and cold foods, cereals, toast, muffins, and desserts. Very impressed. We ate and then walked around to look at the views and came back to our seats and ate some more. Staff were attentive, courteous, and replenishing food all the time. Well done to all.

    Macintosh Island Park is a wonderful oasis of a park close to Main Beach, Narrowneck and Surfers Paradise. With plenty of shade amongst the trees, there is a lake, plenty of birdlife (such as peacocks), a play area, picnic tables, all in a peaceful and tranquil location just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Main Beach and Surfers Paradise. A wonderful place to escape the crowds for an hour or two.

    There were a large number of stalls with a lot of variety.
    Nice when it's a bit cooler in the evening.
    We found some nice jewelry.

    Part of the surfers paradise precinct, just off cavill mall, nice place to hang out watching the world go by, plenty of eateries, to enjoy, larger than life electric dinosaurs and other varieties for kids to enjoy, beware they can get a little out of control.

    Fun for the whole family! Been a few times over the years and it’s good to see some new additions to keep things fresh. Didn’t think the 7D movie would be good, but it was probably the highlight!

    This shopping centre has been fully renovated and is much improved from the past.

    Its the largest and most well known mall in Surfers Paradise.

    As a child I use to visit to play games ion the amusement centre.

    There appears to have been an addition with some new tenants like El Camino Mexican, Thai Restaurant, and ice cream shops and more.

    On the first floor where the eateries are located you get great views of Surfers Paradise Beach.

    It was good fun and we enjoyed it.

    It was not cheap, so I have to say it's not great value for money.

    We moved through at a steady pace and it took about 15mins. We could have slowed up, but then the people behind would join us, so it would not have been as much fun.

    This was an amazing experience and Beth was super lovely to us and took beautiful photos of us. The escape room was challenging but it really made us think outside the box

    We have done lots of escape rooms, mainly Sydney and Canberra- but this was one of the best- we did the the freak show and were disappointed when we finished! We were having so much fun! Our game master Fubba was awesome!! We need to come back to the Gold Coast to do more of there rooms!! On saying that …. Maybe tomorrow ???? High recommend this room and this business 😊
