Welcome to Tripadvisor and the Gold Coast forums! :)

There is no Universal Studios on the Gold Coast, but, if you do mean Movieworld, then catch bus #TX 2. It will also take you to Wet 'n' Wild, Paradise Country (Movieworld, Wet 'n' Wild, and Paradise Country are all in the same area), and Dreamworld, which is further away. To reach Movieworld, it will take just under 30 minutes by bus from Surfers Paradise.

For Seaworld, take bus #750 and you will be there in under 15 minutes from Surfers Paradise.

How much it costs depends on what you will be doing in terms of payment. If you are paying with cash when boarding the bus, it will cost $7.00 to Movieworld, I think, but if you are using the Go Card (tap on/tap off every time you board/leave the bus - can be purchased at the Gold Coast Tourist Shuttle counter in GC Airport or from the 7-Eleven store, and some other places in Surfers Paradise), it will cost $4.77. These are for adult fares though, as fares for children will be cheaper.

If you want to look up bus timetables (and costs for bus journeys) for any routes in the GC, use the 'Journey Planner' on Translink's site: http://jp.translink.com.au/

Good luck with your planning and have a GREAT time on the Gold Coast! :)
