Food and Drinks at Dreamworld

Food and drink are not cheap, for drinks, think at least $4 and up, for a combo meal, think $14 and up.  On the upside, the coffee/food offerings are of a pretty high standard for theme park fare. While food and drink are not allowed to be brought into the park you can get a “pass out” and eat on the grassed area near the entrance or by the Marketplace, although that’ll probably waste a lot of time and energy. You can also order pre-order food online for pick up at Food Central or Kenny’s Fried Chicken, which saves a bunch of time, see here

The main food stations in Dreamworld:

  • Food Central
  • Kenny’s Fried Chicken
  • Green Bean Coffee Company
  • The Sandwich Shop
  • Barrels Burger Bar

When rides are not operating there should be a discount or free pass for when they are running. Otherwise, you are just paying $100 to enter a fenced-off area with expensive food for sale

Good family fun for everyone

The family went to Dreamworld (3yo & 5 yo) and we loved that they had a great selection of rides and attractions for toddlers plus the animal exhibits. The little ones loved Wiggle World and Kung Fu Panda. Our kids loved the Big Red Boat, mini ferris wheel, and spinning teacup.

Most of the adult rides were working but some were not so I suggest checking before you go, that page shows which rides are closed and open times for others.

Minus one star for price. Near to 340 is too much for family budgets but regardless, we did it and enjoyed it.
