New thrills and spills at the theme parks
XCITING new attractions and rides will open at all the major theme parks these school holidays.
The world’s first Justice League 3D – The Ride is now open at Movie World.
The Constrictor sends guests on a wild 30km/h ride at Wet’n’Wild. Seal Harbour will open this December at Sea World.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks chief marketing officer Dale Stratford said $15 million had recently been invested to ensure guests had a theme park experience they’d never forget.
The Justice League 3D ride is a mix of state-of- the-art animatronics and 3D technology where Super Heroes use 3D laser blasters against evil villain, Starro the Conqueror and his alien spores.
“Wet’n’Wild has unleashed new heights of water slide fun with the launch of the mother of all water slides, the Constrictor, with the tightest and highest banking turns in the world,’’ Mr Stratford said.
“Sea World is finalising the new attraction Seal Harbour where guests can get up close and personal with these playful animals.”
Meanwhile Dreamworld and WhiteWater World have a host of new attractions including the latest precinct from DreamWorks Animation, Kung Fu Panda: Land of Awesomeness featuring a Big 8 Thrill Ride, Pandamonium.
The popular Wiggles World has a Big Red Boat Ride and the Big Brother House is now open to guests.
Summer nights are bound to swelter this January, so grab the swimmers and head to Night WhiteWater World every Friday night in January.
Starting at 6.30pm the park, loved so much during the day, offers a whole new experience at night.
Imagine plunging down The Wedgie, dropping into the Green Room in the dark or chillaxing in the Cave of Waves as you star gaze.
Night WhiteWater World events will be held on January 4, 11, 18 and 25 and tickets are $25, or $20 each for a group of four.
Paradise Country is the home of the ultimate Australiana farm experience.
Kids can see dingoes and a new stock horse show at the popular Aussie Farmyard.
This allows them to get up close and personal to baby animals such as lambs, chickens, calves and piglets.
Gold Coast theme parks are the place to be these school holidays.
