A three-metre-tall bronzed Bugs Bunny statue has been unveiled at Warner Bros. Movie World today to celebrate it’s 30th Birthday.
The theme park’s iconic characters including Bugs Bunny, Daffy, Gizmo, Marilyn Monroe, Police Academy and more were on hand for the statue reveal and to cut a giant birthday cake.
Movie World officially opened on 3 June 1991 to massive fanfare with celebrities Clint Eastwood, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russel and Mel Gibson in attendance.
