Tickets To Dreamworld and WhiteWater World

You can buy theme park tickets at the gate when you arrive, but the price is usually a fraction higher than buying online.

 Also, due to the size of the 2 theme parks, you really need a full day at each (or more) to really experience them properly - especially during the busier times like school and summer holidays. Getting a multi-park pass offers the best value for money! There are multi-day options too, such as 3, 7 or 14 day passes, which offer unlimited entry to Dreamworld, WhiteWater World and SkyPoint (at Q1) for the duration of the pass. 

It's also important to note that an entry ticket to Dreamworld does not mean you have entry to WhiteWater World as well. You do need to purchase a separate ticket for WhiteWater World, which is where the multi-park passes come in handy to make your theme park experience more affordable.

Dreamworld's Major Thrill Rides

As Australia's largest theme park, Dreamworld is of course home to some of the tallest, fastest and most action-packed rides in the world with spins, twists, dives, special effects and incredible speeds and heights making for a very fun-filled day for young and old!

Kenny's Forest Flyer
Buzz Saw Upside Down
The Giant Drop

Adrenaline junkies will want to test their metal by braving each of these action-packed rides:

  • The Claw - Sink your talons into some real terror on Dreamworld's latest scream machine. You'll be propelled 9 stories high, swinging up to 75km/h while spinning 360 degrees on this giant Gyro Swing. It will scare you to shreds!
  • Tail Spin - Prepare for a takeoff like never before - you'll be strapped into one of twelve mini aeroplanes that soar to a whopping 72 feet. Grab the controls for some pumping air tricks or sit back for the scenic ride.
  • Steel Taipan - Australia's only triple launch coaster with a top speed of 105km/h and a G-force of 3.8. That's right, there are three launches on this epic roller coaster that snakes around 1.2km of twists and turns. The bravest of the brave will ride at the back the Steel Taipan for the Tailwhip - a spinning seat that will leave you reeling!
  • The Giant Drop - Listed as the tallest vertical free-fall ride in the world (119 metres) in the Guinness Book of World Records. Plummet back to Earth at terminal speed. It's the closest thing you'll get to jumping out of a plane!
  • Mick Doohan's Motocoaster - Dreamworld has teamed up with one of the greatest names in motorbike racing history - five-time 500cc World Champion and World Record Holder Mick Doohan - to bring the thrill and exhilaration of motoracing to the masses with Australia's first motorbike rollercoaster.
  • The Gold Coaster - One of the tallest, high-speed gravity rollercoasters in the Southern Hemisphere. Speed through a reverse sidewinder and 360-degree loop over 13 stories of revved-up, heart-thumping fun! 
  • Serpent Slayer - A ride that has a split personality! Thrill seekers will go round and round, side to side and upside down at up to 3.8 G-forces. Soaring 8 metres high, only true thrill seekers will be able to outlast these 150 seconds of chaos.

There's no other theme park in the country (not even Warner Bros. Movie World) with more rides in one spot, each as unique as the next. They each come with their own height, weight and age restrictions, so make sure to refer to the individual signage displayed at each ride.

Adventure lovers need not look further than Dreamworld to get their pulses pumping!
