MOVIE World’s stunt show was back up and running today, after a rider was injured during a frightening crash.

The Gold Coast theme park’s crowd-pleasing spectacle went off-script on Saturday when a stunt rider crashed into a ute.

The 21-year-old male rider was thrown over the handlebars and onto the bitumen, suffering facial injuries.

The show was cancelled immediately and a horrified crowd was ushered out of the area.
