We were so excited looking at the video option which could capture our adventure and we wasted $100 for just 3mins of ride as we opted for a video + 2nd ride for $10 each... our video goes blank saying "no signal" 70% of the time... I am sure people in management knew that its a disastrous video yet gave... More

These are actually fairly common rides which can be found at many events and fairgrounds (well, in Europe and the US anyway). I've done a few of them and this is a lot slower and more gentle than the others. It's also about twice the price of the others I've done too. It's definitely not a once in a lifetime... More

Although we didn't get to do the slingshot it looked incredible. My kids were in awe and my wife could barely look. It seemed like a lot of fun and as soon as my boys reach the minimum height and age limits we are on it!

3 seconds for $30, better off getting a Dreamworld pass and riding loads of different rides all day.

Teenage kids loved this... not for me! having the "vomatron" ride right next to it was an apt description
