On 3 June 1991, Warner Bros. Movie World opened to the public. One of its original attractions was the Warner Bros. Classics & Great Gremlins Adventure. A duplicate of the Australian attraction opened with Warner Bros. Movie World Germany (later renamed Movie Park Germany) in June 1996. It was named Gremlins Invasion.
In late 2001, Warner Bros. Movie World in Australia announced that they would be closing the attraction to make way for a new attraction set to open in 2002. On 17 June 2002, the Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster opened in the location of Warner Bros. Classics & Great Gremlins Adventure. In Germany, the Gremlins Invasion remained open until the closure of Warner Bros. Movie World Germany in 2004. The park reopened the following year as Movie Park Germany, however, the ride remained standing but not operating. In mid-2011, the ride was replaced with Van Helsing's Factory, a Gerstlauer Bobsled roller coaster.
At Warner Bros. Movie World in Australia, many elements of the ride still exist to this day. The original facade for the attraction exists behind Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster's Spooky Island castle facade. Two of the theatres that were used in the pre-show exist adjacent to the replacement ride's queue. Finally, the unload station still exists (albeit with theming removed) and is used as an evacuation path from the Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster.
Riders would queue for the Warner Bros. Classics & Great Gremlins Adventure on the outside of the show building. Groups of riders would be admitted into the building labelled Warner Bros. Studios. Inside guests would be ushered into one of several movie theatres. Here, the riders would watch some outtakes from various Warner Bros. films such as Batman Returns before the screening was interrupted as the Gremlins had taken over. After exiting the theatre up to 20 riders board a single vehicle which navigates its way throughout the film archive in order to escape the Gremlins. They are taken for a slow trip throughout various sets before exiting the building and being unloaded. Riders would exit past two crashed police cars, similar to those used in the Police Academy Stunt Show (with Gizmo inside one of them).
