A New Jet Ski Show for Sea World!

It’s the final chance for renewing VIP Pass holders to purchase their new VIP Pass for only $99.99, and with the opening of the new Jet Stunt Extreme Show at Sea World this September, this year’s pass provides the biggest year of theme park fun ever seen on the Gold Coast.

Letting loose from 17 September 2011 is Sea World’s awesome new Jet Stunt Extreme Show featuring some of the world’s best jet ski stunt performers.

The visually spectacular show is a new and improved version of the jet ski show which featured at Sea World over the Christmas holidays and will blow guests’ minds with totally cool aerial flips and jumps during a high energy live performance twice each day at Sea World’s Lake.

The best way to check-out Jet Stunt Extreme is with the new VIP pass which provides unlimited entry to Sea World, Movie World and Wet’n’Wild until 30 June 2012 for the incredible price of just $99.99 until 31 July 2011 for renewing pass holders.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks Executive Director of Marketing, Dale Stratford said that the aim was to continue to provide a great value, one-stop pass to fun and entertainment which is available to families Australia-wide.

“The VIP Pass really is the best deal around because it provides unlimited entry to three theme parks for a whole year, so you can visit over and over again, plus there is a truly exciting line-up of new attractions opening this year including multimillion dollar attractions launching at Movie World and Sea World in-time for Christmas,” he said.

This year will also see a new addition to the VIP Pass offering with the VIP Gold ticket which not only provides unlimited entry to Sea World, Movie World and Wet’n’Wild until 30 June 2012, but also includes one entry to each of the signature after dark events at Movie World, Fright Nights and White Christmas.

The VIP Pass also provides a host of discounts and bonus offers including great deals on food and beverage and retail items available exclusively to pass holders.

Dreamworld Reveals its new Bone Chilling Thrill Ride

Dreamworld celebrates its 30th birthday in 2011, and there has never been a better time to visit as Australia’s favourite theme park goes all out with a host of additions including a bone chilling new thrill ride, BuzzSaw.

The biggest year ever for the iconic entertainment destination, Dreamworld has added a new exotic animal exhibit, ‘The Lair’, a new adventure ride, ‘ShockWave’ and now a major thrill ride so extreme it will boost the park’s Big 6 Thrill Rides to the Big 7.

Opening in time for the September school holiday period, BuzzSaw is an Australian first and will be the ride to conquer for high-action adrenaline seekers.

Seated in an open carriage, riders will be held in by a single waist harness leaving the upper body fully exposed to the elements, and with little to cling onto. This white-knuckle ride starts with a suspenseful 46m vertical ascent that will have riders instantly wishing they were back on the ground.

At its peak, the rider’s centre of gravity is flipped and they are dangled upside-down 15 storeys in the air before the ride car free-falls through a 360 degree heart roll, and plummets down a final vertical drop at speeds of up to 105km/hour. BuzzSaw will be the highest inversion ride experience in the Southern Hemisphere.

Situated in the park’s Gold Rush precinct, the construction of the new ride has unearthed some unusual stories about the make-believe mining township, which has been part of Dreamworld since the mid 1980’s.

Unexplainable occurrences recounted by staff working in the area and historic research dating back to the late 1800’s have inspired the ride’s theme and will have guests wondering where fact ends and fiction begins.

With construction now well underway, BuzzSaw will be one of the first menacing thrill rides guests can spot as they arrive in the main car park adding to the already impressive landscape including the Tower of Terror II and The Giant Drop.

Dreamworld’s line-up of new rides and attractions in 2011 makes now the best time ever to visit our worlds of fun.

Stay tuned for more details on this year’s biggest, fastest thrill ride, BuzzSaw.
