The dust has hardly settled on new thrill ride Giant Redback that was launched last month, and now there's another two rides being built at Aussie World.
This week the fun park alongside the iconic Ettamogah Pub on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland purchased the Giant Slide where it was a much loved attraction at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. The aptly named Giant Slide is 150 feet long, 50 feet high and 30 feet wide.
The third ride is yet to be formally announced but will open in time for the September school holidays and will be the first of its kind on the Sunshine Coast.
These rides take Aussie World's investment into the ever popular facility past the $2 million dollar mark reinforcing Aussie World as a major player in the Sunshine Coast tourism industry.
General Manager David Thompson said the purchase of these new attractions will entice more visitors to come to the Sunshine Coast and to stay for longer.
"Due to our management principles and unique diversity of the complex, such as being the largest off site function venue on the Coast, we are successfully forging ahead and are able to make this significant investment," he said.
"We will also remain an affordable and fun day out by not increasing our gate entrance prices."
The three new rides will enhance the current six function areas and 30 rides and attractions on site, which include the Town Hall, The Shed, Giant Redback, Wild Mouse Rollercoaster, Ferris Wheel, Rock n Roll Rebel Dark Ride, Dodgem Cars and Side Show Alley.
