We have been lucky enough to be granted a starlight wish by the Starlight foundation for Amara! Amara loves the water, she is such a fish as it’s the only time she really feels relaxed and able to move freely, so we got to meet Evie the Dolphin at SeaWorld!
The staff at Seaworld were amazing, the trainer was very patient with us and waited till we got Amara in position for Evie to come and meet her 🙂 Was such a great experience for the whole family.
Starlight also organised for us to visit 2 more theme parks in the Gold Coast, Wet n Wild and Dreamworld.
Wet n Wild was our next stop. She loved the wave pool. It wasn’t too rough but enough to get her senses going and make her smile 🙂
Next stop was Dreamworld where I was determined to get her on a ride! I must say the staff at Dreamworld were amazing. they have this policy that anyone can come to Dreamworld and have fun no matter what ability. When you first arrive you see guest services and they can do a ride assessment and tell you what rides are suitable. You also get given a pass to skip the queues and have a second turn on the rides 🙂
We managed to get Amara on the River Rapids and the Log Ride which she absolutely loved. It really made my day that she could experience a “rollercoaster ride”
We flew Virgin Airlines who were amazing, as soon as they saw the wheelchair they came to help us. They even helped wheel our suitcases 🙂
A huge thank you to the Starlight Foundation for organising this trip for the whole family, they really went above and beyond to make the trip as smooth as possible and special.
