The Sunshine Coast’s Aussie World fun park is investing over two million dollars by opening two new rides, the first one opening just in time for the important Easter holidays. 

The first new ride is called the Giant Redback, a ride manufactured in Italy by thrill ride and rollercoaster design and manufacturing company Zamperla. The other ride (due to open later this year) will be first of its kind on the Sunshine Coast.

These two new rides will enhance current attractions, which include the Wild Mouse Rollercoaster, Ferris Wheel, Rock n Roll Rebel Dark Ride and over 30 rides and games already onsite.

Targeting those with an adventurous spirit, the Giant Redback promises to be the Sunshine Coast’s most thrilling ride.  It seats 24 people, is an impressive 16 metres in height and has clockwise and anticlockwise circular rotations on a platform with outward facing seats.

"We are thrilled to provide these new attractions, " says David Thomson, General Manager.  "Our hope is this will give even more reason for people, domestic, international and the corporate business market, to visit the naturally refreshing Sunshine Coast."

The Aussie World complex is located on the Bruce Highway, Sunshine Coast and includes the famous and iconic Ettamogah Pub and ever popular retail shopping strip.

Management and unique diversity of the complex has allowed it to successfully forge through the recent tough economic situation to be able to make this significant investment.
