Batman glided into Surfers Paradise this morning to celebrate his 80th anniversary!
The Caped Crusader made his trademark entrance by abseiling from the roof of the Novotel, before joining Robin for a drive in the Batmobile down Cavill Mall.
Batman’s spectacular stunt in the precinct also marked the launch of the DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains event which will be returning to Warner Bros. Movie World these school holidays.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Operating Officer, Bikash Randhawa said Movie World is proud to take part in the global celebrations with Batman being a key figure of the Gold Coast theme park.
“For 80 years, the Dark Knight has stood as a symbol of determination, bravery and justice to generations of fans. Since appearing in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS #27 on March 30, 1939, Batman continues to leave his mark in every form of entertainment imaginable,” he said.
“In what was a must-see event for Surfers Paradise, Batman celebrated the anniversary in style as he performed one of his most iconic stunts with the picturesque beach and skyline in the background as he glided 36 floors down from the roof of the Novotel.
“Movie World will also be celebrating Batman’s 80th Anniversary during the annual DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains event at the park with the new Light Show Parade paying homage to the caped crusader featuring a display of some of the most memorable Batmobiles through time.”
From 29 June – 13 July, the DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains event returns to Movie World with new character appearances and the all new light-show parade at the special time of 5.30pm followed by The Joker Funhouse Party from 6pm – 8pm. For more information, visit: movieworld.com.au/
