The place hasn't changed in years and disappointed that it looked like it was 'closed' unkept and tired.....But, the staff try hard to make it enjoyable, exciting and fun.

All 4 of us went on this. Hubbie and I first then the girls. The height restriction is only 110cm which is great because our youngest often misses out in thrill rides where the height is often 130cm or more. We got the DVD of the kids ride. The camera faces you so you get your response. Probably one of... More

My 24 year old son did this and loves thrill rides. He said this was a brilliant rush. Great fun even if just watching and you cannot help laughing at the people screaming their way through the ride. Staff very friendly. Worth a look even if not riding.

Have done the Slingshot a few times now. It is a little expensive for the amount of time it takes, but is great fun. The Vomitron next to it is even better for the thrill seeker. You may be able to negotiate a discount if you have a group.

We didn't know about this place until we drove past it- despite all my research into the Gold Coast. My eldest child is an absolute thrill seeker, so my plan was just to go along for him to ride. But in the end my whole family did the slingshot- the youngest being 6yrs old!! It was fantastic. The view from... More

One word.... Awesome. Great fun, Adrenalin lovers dream. Loved it. I think the fact that this is NOT in a fairground or Amusement Park makes it better. Surrounded by Surfers Paradise buildings & streets, but with the beach & ocean just down the road, its a great location.

Being a 16 year old I could not miss this! I was a solo rider and was paired with another solo rider. We screamed all the way up but we absolutely loved it! I also got the USB it was worth the extra few dollars.

Good value for 2 people if you are told about the extra ride if you don't get off for ten dollars before you take the first one. Unfortunately you aren't told until it's time to get off and no time to talk the other person into it

An old gold coast staple that is hard to go past. For anyone interested in a safe and professional extreme experience this place is the one for you. Plus this venue offers extended operating hours, making it a great evening option for those who still have energy to spare.

My kids had a go and loved every second . Well worth the money. It was a brilliant way to see all of the Gold Coast at night
