The multi-million-dollar ride will take guests on a thrilling adventure as they reach speeds of 30km/h and experience up to 5 G-Forces on the 18-metre-high pendulum swinging attraction. 

The Vortex is the first attraction to open in The New Atlantis precinct at Sea World, which will feature three new, world-class rides including the Vortex, the Leviathan, a wooden coaster opening and the Trident, 42metre high swinging attraction, both opening in mid-2021.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks CEO, Clark Kirby said this is a wonderful time in the company’s history and demonstrates an ongoing commitment to the tourism industry on the Gold Coast.

“We are incredibly excited to officially open the Vortex ride at Sea World, and we can’t wait to welcome our guests to experience this thrilling attraction,” he said.

“Construction on the Leviathan and Trident attractions are also underway, and we look forward to opening these in mid-2021 to complete The New Atlantis precinct. 

“At Village Roadshow Theme Parks, we are committed to providing world-class attractions and the opening of rides such as these are a drawcard for the Gold Coast as a tourism destination.
