For some, theme parks are all about what rides are on offer.

The big-ticket thrill rides to keep an eye out for include ‘Pandamonium’ and ‘Tail Spin’. Other great theme park rides include ‘Escape from Madagascar’ and ‘Shockwave’.

There’s all the excitement of Sky Voyager, Skadoosh Bumper Cars, and The Giant Drop (there are reports that it is Australia’s highest).

Perhaps leave the picnic basket at home and try one of the great eateries located at Dreamworld. Barrels Burger Bar has fresh, delicious gourmet burgers and more. The Sandwich Shop has everything that opens and shuts from the world of super fresh sandwiches, wraps, salads and a generous selection of hot and cold drinks. Those who are convinced the world is powered by coffee will revel in Green Bean Coffee Company. This piece of Dreamworld paradise has freshly brewed Byron Bay Coffee on offer in air-conditioned comfort.

The Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation brings you Tiger Island Adventures. The big cats at Dreamworld are ambassadors for their species and offer an amazing glimpse into the world of these striped jungle cats. If nothing is done, these big cats may vanish from the face of the earth in just ten years. Dreamworld is a major contributor to the global effort to save the tiger in the wild. Funds raised from this education and preservation project are helping protect and preserve tigers in the wild and Australian animals including bilbies.

Dreamworld is reported as having a high satisfaction rate from visitors and is one of Australia’s most visited theme parks.

Winter school holidays are a total blast at Dreamworld with the arrival of Winterfest. It’s a winter wonderland with ice skating, tobogganing and the deliciously anticipated Winterfest pop up food stall with warming European treats for young and old.
