Dreamworld launches new attractions

Dreamworld launches new attractions
September 12, 2011

Gold Coast theme park Dreamworld is introducing two new attractions for the upcoming holiday season.

As the attraction counts down to its 30th birthday later this year, a new high-action adrenaline ride 'BuzzSaw' will take the park's 'Big 6' thrill rides to a 'Big 7'.

The ride, an Australian first, will be the highest inversion ride experience in the Southern Hemisphere.

Seated in an open carriage, BuzzSaw riders will be held in by a single waist harness with little to cling on to before being flipped and dangled upside-down 15 storeys in the air. Their carriage then free-falls through a 360-degree heart roll and plummets down a final vertical drop at speeds of up to 105 kilometres per hour.

The ride, A Maurer Sohne SkyLoop ride, is currently under construction and is scheduled to open on 17th September.

Dreamworld has also introduced a new wildlife experience this week, to coincide with National Threatened Species Day.

The Tiger Feed Experience gives guests the chance to hand-feed Dreamworld's famous tigers. The new experience replaces the park's former tiger walks.

Both new attractions will be fully opersational in time for the spring school holidays.
