“In Response to Fishing the 2nd“
Dreamworld is Australias largest theme-park with a lot of rollercoasters and other attractions at the Goldcoast in Queensland.
I just bought the “unlimited world pass” the other day with which I have 1year unlimited access to Dreamworld, Whitewater Park and Q1-Skypoint. Why the unlimited world pass for 1year? – Actually it was just 10AUD more expensive than the 1day-pass and I could go another time within the next days if I want to!
How is Dreamworld? What did I like best?
As I’ve been there for just about half a day, I didn’t have the chance to test every single ride, but at least all the thrill ones :).
We started with The Claw which was really fun and then went on to “Wipeout” where our heads got shaken up plenty of times upside down and felt pretty dizzy afterwards. Altough we felt kinda sick, we decided to go on a rollercoaster called Cyclone. It is actually one of the two only real rollercoaster-rides in this park. We had to wait a few minutes and then enjoyed a fun but bumpy ride.
As you’re seated, you get winched up 120m to the top of the tower. Up there you have a beautiful view for a couple seconds until you suddenly start falling with up to 135km per hour with your legs hanging freely. It is really fun and probably the closest thing to skydiving.
At the same tower, there’s another thrill ride called Tower of Terror II. This ride rockets you backwards out of a 206m tunnel with up to 161km/h, 100m up high the tower. Up there you’re dangling for a few seconds before plummeting back into the ultra narrow tunnel. Pretty exciting but actually a little bit too short for waiting all those minutes in the queue.
My favourite ride was called BuzzSaw. Besides “Cyclone” this is the other real Rollercoaster in Dreamworld. You drive up a perfectly vertically track facing the sky before you reach it’s peak upsidedown facing the ground and then start a really fun ride freefalling through a 360° roll followed by a final vertical drop at speeds of up to 105km/hour. I can really recommend this ride, it was awesome!
