Guests at Warner Bros. Movie World can now experience the tallest HyperCoaster in the Southern Hemisphere from a new perspective with a new climbing attraction to open on the theme park’s DC Rivals HyperCoaster.

Launching this weekend, the DC Rivals HyperCoaster Lift Climb features 282 stairs with guests climbing 61 metres to the top of the tallest peak of the attraction, where they can take in district views from the popular ride.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Operating Officer, Bikash Randhawa said he is excited for guests to experience Australia’s favourite coaster from a new angle.

Randhawa explains “the DC Rivals HyperCoaster Lift Climb is an attraction that rivals all others and provides guests with incredible 360-degree views of the Gold Coast overlooking Movie World, Topgolf and the city’s skyline.

“At Movie World, we are always looking at ways we can offer unique experiences and the DC Rivals HyperCoaster Lift Climb is a must-do.

“The DC Rivals HyperCoaster Lift Climb is an exclusive experience limited to only eight guests per climbing session with one of our highly-skilled operations team to provide unique information about the attraction on the climb.

“The launch of the DC Rivals HyperCoaster Lift Climb also coincides with the first birthday of the attraction and we have been thrilled with the guest feedback on the ride and can’t wait for them to participate in this new experience.”

The DC Rivals HyperCoaster, was created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment.

The experience will operate on selected days and includes light refreshments and morning tea for a charge of $99.99.
