Warner Bros. Movie World announces new DC Comics attraction

Warner Bros. Movie World announces new DC Comics attraction
February 23, 2016

Gold Coast theme park Warner Bros. Movie World has announced that it is to develop a world-first DC Comics ‘Super-Villain’ themed area.

Set to open in October, DC Comics Super-Villains Unleashed will be an immersive themed area centred on a new looping ride to be known as the Doomsday Destroyer.

Industry insiders have speculated that the ride will be supplied by Switzerland-based Intamin Amusement Rides and potentially be a Suspended Twin Hammer ride, a modern take on the classic 'pirate ship' style of attraction featuring 32 riders with dangling feet, spinning through a range of pre-programmed effects including 360 degree loops.

Advice that the ride would be “looping’ would appear to rule a 2013 proposal for a 145-metre-tall observation and free-fall tower, suggested in an online guest survey.

Anticipating that the with DC Comics Super-Villains Unleashed and the Doomsday Destroyer will offer Movie World guests a range of unique experiences, Warner Bros. Movie World General Manager, Greg Yong commented “there has always been a focus on DC Comics Super Heroes at Warner Bros. Movie World but these new attractions will showcase the Super-Villains from the DC Universe.

“DC Comics Super-Villains Unleashed and the Doomsday Destroyer will unleash an army of DC Super-Villains upon the park with the aim of causing mass destruction in their wake.

“This is the first of a number of significant developments for Movie World.”
