Gold Coast features various theme parks that showcases unique family entertainment and rides that have different levels of thrill. Some of these rides are suitable for the little ones while some are for the bigger kids and adults. But if you are one of those people who prefers stomach churning rides, then head over to 6 Palm Ave, Surfers Paradise.
Feel the adrenaline rush through your veins as you ride the Sling Shot and Vomatron. Beware. These two rides are not for the faint-hearted.
The sky is no limit in the two-seater Sling Shot ride. In fact, this is one the most thrilling vertical amusement rides available. If you have mustered enough courage, then get ready for the rush of your life.
Simply take a seat, relax, and wait for the countdown. When it ends, you will be catapulted into the air – over 80 metres high with the speed of over 160 kilometres per hour. Don't forget to scream and enjoy the views way up high.
If you want to see your Sling Shot experience over and over, you have the option to have it captured on video. The ride is priced at $30per person per ride, $20 USB Video, and $95 couples package which includes ride, video, and two t-shirts.
In the Sling Shot ride, the riders are propelled to the sky but with the Vomatron, you are in for a full 360 degree spin.
The ride is equipped with two huge electric motors that powers the giant 40 meter arm enabling it to rotate with the speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour and 4gs of force. So sit back, relax, and enjoy every angle of Surfers Paradise. Take note that the Vomatron also spins in reverse which means its a 360 degree of fun times two!
Are you ready to ride the Vomatron? Rate per ride is $20 per person, $15 USB photos, and $60 for the couples package which includes the ride, photos, and t-shirts.
The Sling Shot and Vomatron are open daily from 10am to 10pm. They are also open on Good Friday and Anzac Day but from 2pm to 10pm only and closed on Christmas Day.
