Dreamworld to open interactive motorsport precinct based around Peter Brock cars

Dreamworld to open interactive motorsport precinct based around Peter Brock cars
September 7, 2015

Gold Coast theme park Dreamworld is set to open an interactive motorsport precinct with the world’s largest collection of Peter Brock racing cars as its centrepiece.

Dreamworld has recently taken over custody of a collection of around 30 original and replica Brock-mobiles set to go on display and intends to base them in a new precinct.

The development will also see the renovation and rebranding of the park’s existing Cyclone rollercoaster with a motorsport flavour and the installation of six state-of-the-art racing simulators.

The 6,000 metre² area will also add a new train and themed dining and retail areas to complete a “multi-million dollar immersive motorsport experience”.

Introducing the new attraction, Dreamworld Chief Executive Craig Davidson stated “as an Australian first, this will be a high-octane revved-up experience, and while the narrative is based on motor racing, there will be something for everyone.

“There is nothing ‘museum’ about this - it’s a motorsport-themed thrill-ride precinct anchored by a celebration of Australian motorsport and Brock’s achievements from the 1970s through to his modern day legacy.

“We are working closely with the Brock family and our partners to ensure the attraction is authentic and like nothing experienced in Australia before.

“Our new-look coaster will be an adrenalin-fuelled hot-lap complete with its famous loop track and music pumped through the headrests.

“Guests can also race each other on the latest fully immersive simulators featuring all circuit rounds of the V8 Supercar series.”

The new attraction is expected to open immediately after Christmas 2015.
