Screamworld 2014 Review

Dreamworld’s “park after dark” is definitely something totally different from the norm. Rain, hail or moonshine (or in our case over two nights, a whole heap of rain) the park opens its doors after hours for a chance to experience the park’s lineage of family attractions and big thrill rides all at night. It’s a simple enough concept with a few perks thrown in for good measure – while you’re discovering what it’s like to freefall into a dark abyss aboard Giant Drop’s 119m drop, or barrel-rolling in the night sky aboard TailSpin, the park’s latest thrill ride, there’s also a DJ and regular “Illuminate” shows (the park’s laser/fire/light-show) throughout the night.

While I spent the majority of the two evenings capturing the atmosphere and experiences the park has to offer, I have been to quite a few over the past decade. For what it’s worth, they’ve come a long way and continue to do so in terms of offerings – there’s plenty of cool little places to grab a bev, including Boost Juice in Main Street, and they’re not short on street performers either – expect to see Kenny & Belinda (the park’s mascots) along with the Fun Police making regular appearances throughout the night, all of which comes together in the sort of well-rounded premium experience which both families and teens can enjoy.

But enough talk, right? Checkout the photos and let us know your thoughts. Full image album is available on Flickr.

TailSpin is a cool ride to jump on at night - you definitely lose sense of where you are mid-ride.

Some rides, including the Wipeout, are crazy good at night.
