Fodor's Review

At Coomera's Dreamworld, the main draw is the "big nine": high-tech thrill rides including the aptly-named Giant Drop, a nearly 400-foot vertical plummet akin to skydiving; the nine-story, 360-degree pendulum swing of Claw; the turbulent Wipeout and screamingly fast, scarily high Tower of Terror; and Tail Spin, a soaring mini airplane adventure; plus five roller coasters and an all-new interactive motorsports precinct. But it's certainly not all thrills and spills. Take a leisurely walk through Tiger Island where Bengal tigers and their gorgeous cubs swim, play, and even let you pet (and feed!) them; or get your picture taken with a cuddly koala in Koala Country. See more than 800 other native animals at the conservation-focused on-site Wildlife Sanctuary (including crocs), cool off in the artificial lagoon, or cruise the park's waterways on a paddle wheeler. Kids enjoy the ABC Kids World and DreamWorks Experience, alongside classic favorites like bumper cars, river rapids, and the Rocky

Hollow Log Ride. Book ahead and you can also try the Flowrider (A$7.50), an amalgam of surfing and skateboarding, or, at the end of the day, join a guided, two-hour Sunset Safari (A$29) for close-up encounters with tigers and native wildlife (from 4:45 pm, in season). Make the most of your day by signing up for Q4U virtual queueing on your smartphone (A$15), which saves you from waiting in line for popular rides. The park is 45 minutes outside Brisbane and 20-25 minutes from Surfers Paradise along the M1 Pacific Motorway: take Exit 54 at Coomera. Purchase tickets online for discounts and specials.
