When a river-mouth dredging project connected Snapper Rocks, Greenmount and Kirra into one flawless right-hander, it was the happiest accident in the history of the Gold Coast – a new super ride was born!
But the Gold Coast’s new Superbank is Super Tubes HydroCoaster, a water-based rocket and the world’s very latest innovation in waterslide thrills and technology.
This intense rollercoaster on water, complete with exhilarating drops and terrifying turns, propelling riders up the steepest of inclines at the highest speeds. One of only two of it’s kind in the whole world, it’s a 28 second, ‘magic carpet’ ride for three that would leave Aladdin begging for mercy.
Filled with open tubes and enclosed flumes, Super Tubes HydroCoaster’s back to back turns and loops are like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
Riders sit one behind the other in a special Rocket Raft built for three before being blasted from the 18 metre tower down the 236 metre track of terror.
Super Tubes Hydrocoaster has a conveyor belt to take your Rocket Raft back up for blast off.
