Tower of Terror II

After almost 14 years of thrills and more than 8 million panicked passengers, one of Australia’s most iconic scream machines, Dreamworld’s Tower of Terror, has reloaded and…reversed! Unlike the original, adrenalin junkies will be harnessed into the deepest depths of the Tower’s lair, facing nothing but a dark void.

An eerie silence lasts for just milliseconds before the car blasts backwards rocketing guests out of a 206m tunnel at rapid speed hitting up to 161 km/h in seven seconds flat. Riders soar 100m into the atmosphere dangling for several seconds of stomach-churning weightlessness at its peak before plummeting back to earth…only this time it’s face first. Hold on tight and brace for collision because the ultra narrow tunnel appears impossibly small for re-entry.

The giant “L shaped” ride structure forms an impressive landmark, dramatically changing the skyline of the Gold Coast theme park. The supporting Tower was designed to accommodate a further ride - The Giant Drop, which opened in December 1998. Since the Tower of Terror’s official launch almost 8 million passengers (April 2010) have experienced the thrills of one of the most technologically advanced rides in the world. It was the first ride in the world to break the 100 mile/hour barrier.

The Tower of Terror’s horizontal track lies three to five metres above the ground, stretching 330 metres across the Park, while the vertical tower looms an imposing 38 storeys into the sky. The Escape Pod, a six tonne steel passenger vehicle carrying up to 15 passengers is propelled by a linear motor system which accelerates the ride to maximum speed.

An 11 metre, crimson-eyed, metallic skull looms over the entrance to the Tower of Terror. Before getting set for takeoff, guests encounter a terrifying maze of concrete and steel, filled with hidden perils as they wind their way through to the launch pod. A startling depth illusion gives the impression of being high above city skyscrapers below.

In February 1997 the Tower of Terror claimed a then world first speed record for rollercoasters, blasting from zero to 161 km per hour (100 mph) in just seconds. The speed was registered on a Police calibrated hand-held Falcon radar gun and verified by a Justice of the Peace.

Swiss company Intamin designed the Tower of Terror for Dreamworld, with the Park itself project managing construction of the leading edge thrill ride. 

The new attraction complements the parks existing suite of scream machines including the Tail SpinThe Giant DropBuzzsawShockwaveMick Doohan's MotoCoasterCycloneWipeout and The Claw.
