DC Rivals Hypercoaster Opens! POV

DC Rivals looks great!

The tallest, longest and fastest coaster in Australia is now open and it looks totally awesome!

The ride announcement page can be seen here, it has some really cool animations of the ride and stats as you watch!


THE southern hemisphere’s biggest and fastest rollercoaster will open at Movie World today as the Gold Coast theme park tries to win back patrons spooked by last year’s disaster at rival Dreamworld.
The $30 million DC Rivals HyperCoaster sends riders hurtling at up to 115km/h through a 1.4km-long, 61m-high series of looping twists and turns.
It’s the first big-ticket theme park attraction to open on the Gold Coast since the Dreamworld tragedy last October when four tourists were killed on the Thunder River Rapids ride.
The disaster sent Glitter Strip theme park attendances plummeting by as much as 30 per cent and numbers are still recovering.
Clark Kirby, chief executive of Movie World owner Village Roadshow Theme Parks, said the German-made HyperCoaster was the company’s biggest-ever investment in an attraction and the most expensive in Australia.
He said it was the longest, fastest and highest rollercoaster in the southern hemisphere and would be a “game-changer” for the theme park industry. -couriermail







What a great looking ride, some odd shaping that we haven't seen before which is always nice to see, and Intamin continues its love for the non-inverting loop. It's so great to see parks building more and more coasters that are not "one-trick-pony's." We're truly in a great time for coasters as the enthusiast community grows!
