It is no surprise that Warner Bros. Movie World has several DC-inspired rides; however, you would be surprised that all these rides are labelled as max thrill. This means that there are restrictions such as height and age requirements. If you pass that and in good health, you might want to try the following rides:
BATWING Spaceshot: Would you like some bungee-like ride? The BATWING Spaceshot is 60 metres high with a top speed of 72 km an hour and 3.5Gs of shooting up and down. So get ready to lose your stomach in the Dark Knight’s special ride.
SUPERMAN Escape: Are you a fan of The Last Son of Krypton? Then get ready for an incredible and fast ride. The SUPERMAN Escape has a 760 metres long track. As the carriage is propelled forward, you will reach 100 kilometres an hour in only TWO seconds. Yes, 2 seconds! Well, it is Superman after all!
Green Lantern Coaster: Ready to take the steepest inverted drops in the Southern Hemisphere? The Green Lantern Coaster is 33 metres high with 488 metres of track which you will take at a speed of 66 km per hour.
Justice League 3D – Ride: Would you like to engage in an indoor laser shooting action? The Justice League 3D – Ride is a very interactive one. Each rider has a laser blaster that you will use to stun enemies. Every stun equals to one point. So if you want to score high, grab you laser and blast as you take on this 200 metre-adventure.
Arkham Asylum: This crazy ride is perfect for adrenaline junkies! Simply comfortably and safely harnessed into the Ivy League of Insanity but let your legs hang free and enjoy the insane ride. If you want a unique experience, you can avail VR goggles and enter another world. The Arkham Asylum is 32 metres high with a top speed of 85 km an hour.
DOOMSDAY Destroyer: This ride is located at the DC Super-Villains Unleashed, a very interactive precinct so be careful as there are Super-Villains everywhere. Anyway, this ride features terrifying looping action reaching 21metres of high at a speed 36 kilometre an hour.
DC Rivals HyperCoaster: Not only is this the tallest, but it is also the longest and fastest HyperCoaster in the Southern Hemisphere. The DC Rivals HyperCoaster stands 61.6 metres high and is 1.4 km long and reaches speeds of up to 115km/h. If the thrill isn’t enough, you can ride it backwards.
2. Enjoy an Afternoon DC Rivals HyperCoaster Climb
If you think the DC Rivals HyperCoaster is one thrilling ride, then you will enjoy the second type of adventure called the DC Rivals HyperCoaster Climb.
This is the first and only HyperCoaster climb in the Southern Hemisphere. After tackling 282 stairs, you will be treated to a wonderful 360-degree view of the Gold Coast. This experience is only available in the afternoon which is followed by light refreshments. Take note, this is only open to a group of four to eight people and is by appointment only.
