Dreamworld on Guinness World Records


Recommended Posts

This is all i could find on the c7 web site. Tallest Vertical Drop Ride The Giant Drop at Dreamworld, near Coomera, Queensland, Australia, drops from a height of 119 m (390 ft) giving riders five seconds of free fall time before being brought to a halt by electromagnetic brakes. The ride, which is as tall as a 30-storey building, opened on 26 December 1998 and cost AU$12 million (£4.5 million or US7.4 million).

Correction: the Giant Drop cost A$14m.

Correction to you all. Giant Drop cost Dreamworld four million, the quote that everyone gets mixed up with was the one that Dreamworld quotes as "The Giant Drop would cost 12 million if it was a STAND ALONE attraction i.e. including the tower's actual cost and whatnot." And yes, Giant Drop is 39 stories, the tower stands at 126.5 metres (for those die hard fans who wanted to know) and the Tower of Terror can hit a maximum of 38 stories, the equivalent of 115m. So now you know.
