New thrills at Australia’s largest theme park

AUSTRALIA’S largest theme park has revealed details of its much-anticipated new ride and slide due for launch this September.

After much speculation, Dreamworld has unveiled its newest thrill ride, the Tail Spin, as part of its new Ocean Parade development.

With 12 rider-operated mini planes that reach 72 feet high, the Tail Spin allows guests to enjoy as much [or as little] thrill as they please with controls that allow riders to spin at their own pace.


The latest addition takes the Big 8 Thrill Rides to the Big 9.

Adjoining fun park WhiteWater World has also revealed details of a new slide, the Triple Vortex, where guests will be rushed down a 145m tube slide on a two-person raft, through three funnels.

Also, after 20 years of service and seven million riders, Dreamworld’s iconic Wipeout will re-open this week after undergoing a major facelift.
