The all new Adrenalin Alley at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast features a new breed of innovative attractions, including Australia’s only V8 Supercars simulator experience (REDLINE), the country’s first non-stop wave (FlowRider), a A$2.5 million sci-fi themed laser combat game (AVPX) and 13 storeys of white-knuckle twists and turns on The Cyclone rollercoaster.
Dreamworld chief executive officer, Noel Dempsey, said Adrenalin Alley – located at one end of Ocean Parade – gives function organisers a choice of trail blazing experiences at price points that suit all budgets.
“Companies can take their team from the board room to the AVPX battlefield for two hours and receive a welcome drink and mixed platters of food for just A$29 per person. Or they can hire out the entire precinct for four hours of after-dark action with free flow of food and beverage for A$105 per person. And there are a range of prices and offerings in between, he said.
“Where else can you drive V8 Supercars at virtual speeds of 300km per hour over Mt Panorama, wipe out on a non-stop wave and then battle aliens using cutting-edge laser weaponry? The attractions can be played individually or team versus team.”
Award-winning Dreamworld became the first venue in Australia to be inducted into the Meetings Industry Association of Australia (now MEA) Hall of Fame. -John Newton
