Great for teenagers. One of the staff went up with my 15 year old. The DVD is worth getting as it is good quality and worth every cent to see the fear on you kids face. Highly recommend.

Intriguing to watch so thought we would have a go. Well my heart skipped a few beats as it was rather scary due to the height and bounciness. However the ride was too pricey. You can see allot during the day when the other rides are going and nobody is on the sling shot. Maybe because it is too dear.

Not that l went on it as l don't like this kind of stuff, those that did appeared to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and watching their video's afterwards. Great for thrill seekers with loads of cash.

Myself and my 10 yo daughter had a crack at this.....TWICE..... Its worth the money to do it twice............great fun !! I don't rate the extra cost of the video on the flash drive, cost there was a tad steep. Thrills a minute, staff helpful (dog lying down in front of it all, not giving a toss...even better)

Our teenage daughter is an adventurer and eagerly took on this ride. Neither of her parents or her brother's could stomach the ride but had almost as much fun just watching....definitely one to tick off the gold coast lists of must do's. The usb and t-shirt were decently priced and great mementos.

We were excited to see and hear the reviews of this ride. We anticipated a great time. We were very disappointed when we were told that it was only reserved for 'schoolies' Not the fault of the owners. Being from Canada, we didn't know that this particular weekend was the 'springbreak' for Australian high school kids. The company that had... More

Plucked up the courage to try this yesterday with my daughter. It was like 10 cups of coffee all at once, great start to the evening. They made an awesome video of us that you can keep on a memory stick which my daughter has plastered all over YouTube and Facebook.

I placed my two teenage daughters on this ride on a warm balmy night and had just as much fun watching them launch off as they had being the projectiles! The USB video they kept of the ride was a great souvenir and hilarious to watch! Just do it :-)

For four days we kept passing by the Slingshot and the Vomitron and each time I would try to gather up my courage and take the plunge. The Vomitron was too scary for me even contemplate, but the Slingshot seemed doable. On our penultimate day in Gold Coast, I managed to go and witness the ride and watched some of... More
