Sky Fanatics!

Take some spare underwear as this is the tallest, free-falling ride in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World records. The Giant Drop, was officially declared the ‘tallest, vertical free-fall ride in the world’ by the Guinness Book of World Records in their 1999 edition. Standing 119m high (39 stories), The Giant Drop is now a legendary Australian landmark. It opened at Dreamworld in 1998 and has carried more than seven million passengers to date.

The closest thing you will get to actual skydiving - don’t be fooled by the amazing scenery as you are winched slowly to the top. The top floor is the sky and the only way down is a jaw dropping 119m plummet at extreme speed, a rush like no other. During the ride, passengers experience the excitement and exhilaration of falling 39 stories - accelerating at the speed of gravity (up to 135 km per hour), with their legs hanging freely. A sophisticated magnetic braking system (with a lifespan of approximately 1.2 million years) stops the ride just meters from the ground.   

This attraction complements Dreamworld's BIG 9 Thrill Rides including the Tail Spin, Hot Wheels SideWinderTower Of Terror IIWipeOutBuzzSawMick Doohan's MotocoasterThe Claw and Pandamonium.
