Bit of fun, not too expensive. There wasn't a line so you can just walk up, pay and get on. We skipped the photos/videos packages as that makes it expensive.

The slingshot is good fun with a great view. In my option it is quite expensive for 30 sec fun. Additionally the staff was rude.

What a great little ride, a bit costly but really good fun. Did it with grandson who asked "does it just go up and down and around a couple of times?" To which I replied "yes, mate". His response on the ride was priceless. A must do ride.

Yeah this place is the bomb. My 9 and 11 year old girls rode that bad boy after some initial nervous hesitation. The staff were really supportive and super friendly. My partner rode it 4 times all up in 2 days. We did it together 2 times in a row. Initial ride isn't cheap but half price rides for life... More

A bit pricey for the time we had on it. We had great fun when we got on. Will probably not go on again.

A great ride full of anticipation. Be sure to get the DVD so you can laugh at the ridiculous faces you make while screaming in sheer terror. As the slingshot stops bouncing you are high enough to get a great view of Surfers Paradise. Every DVD goes the same way. Two of you strapped in crapping yourselves. The two of... More

The place hasn't changed in years and disappointed that it looked like it was 'closed' unkept and tired.....But, the staff try hard to make it enjoyable, exciting and fun.

All 4 of us went on this. Hubbie and I first then the girls. The height restriction is only 110cm which is great because our youngest often misses out in thrill rides where the height is often 130cm or more. We got the DVD of the kids ride. The camera faces you so you get your response. Probably one of... More

My 24 year old son did this and loves thrill rides. He said this was a brilliant rush. Great fun even if just watching and you cannot help laughing at the people screaming their way through the ride. Staff very friendly. Worth a look even if not riding.
