In 1974, John Longhurst purchased 85 hectares of land on Australia’s Gold Coast to build his dream. With only a few attractions, but a whole lot of heart, Dreamworld opened to the public on December 15, 1981. Owned and operated by Ardent Leisure since 1998, the park has spent the intervening decades growing year on year to eventually evolve into Australia’s biggest theme park.

domestic and international visitation, it is Dreamworld’s objective to be an all-inclusive theme park that caters for all ages. ABC Kids World and Wiggles World are designed for younger children, while the DreamWorks Experience and a number of thrill rides offer a range of entertainment for older guests.


Park highlights With hundreds of employees working in various departments including ride operation, food and beverage, retail, engineering, marketing and many more, Dreamworld has identified the biggest logistical need of large theme parks is keeping up with modern trends and evolving with demand. Visitor entertainment trends are constantly changing, and


guests increasingly want more than just to experience a ride - they want to be fully immersed in it. Virtual reality and extrasensory experiences are becoming more and more popular, and theme parks must move with these trends. With this in mind, Dreamworld demonstrated its committed

The $17-million project was built in partnership with Brogent Technologies on the site of the former Dreamworld Cinema, and invites guests to take flight over Australia’s most spectacular landscapes in a simulated family experience. Sky Voyager combines motion- programmed seating with special effects such as wind, sound, light, mist and scents, suspended in front of a giant

ncompassing over 40 rides, slides, wildlife precincts and attractions, Dreamworld is a staple of the Australian Gold Coast’s theme park and


dome screen. Guests walk through the Sky Voyager departure lounge before being ushered on board and taking off over 12 regions across Australia in a five and a half-minute flight experience. The park has also recently dropped the curtain on the first


waterpark attraction to be built on the Gold Coast in five years, with Fully 6 making its grand debut at WhiteWater World in December 2019. Guests can now plunge into five unique adrenalin experiences, with the slides decked out with multi-coloured natural light effects. The complex boasts the only tower in Australia with six body slides. Meanwhile, a classic Dreamworld favourite thrill ride, The


Giant Drop, is visible from miles around and has become an Australian theme park icon. One of the tallest free-falling rides in the world, the Intamin drop tower is 119 m (390 ft) high, with a drop of 115 m (377 ft). It reaches a whopping speed of 135 km/h (83.9 mph).
