The BuzzSaw is the highest inversion ride experience in the Southern Hemisphere and the first menacing thrill ride guests can spot as they arrive in the main car park. Just the sight of it will send chills through your bones. With some Great Value Tickets there's never been a better time to visit Dreamworld. 

Seated in an open carriage, you will be held in a single waist harness with little to cling on to. This white-knuckle ride starts with a suspenseful 46m vertical ascent that will have you instantly wishing you were back on the ground.

At its peak, your centre of gravity is flipped as you’re dangled upside-down 15 storeys in the air before the ride car free-falls through a 360 degree heart roll, plummeting down a final vertical drop at speeds of up to 105km/hour.

Racing through the launch station, momentum sends you on a lightning fast series of ascents and descents, rocking forwards and backwards on the gigantic loop before the ride car is caught in mid-air and lowered back to the base. BuzzSaw, it’s a ripper of a ride.

Gold Rush. It's just a happy little country town. Or is it?

Visitors all say the same thing; there's something… odd… about the town of Gold Rush. Formed during the great gold rush of 1876, it thrived until the gold ran out in 1887. It then turned to timber and continued to prosper.

The people are neat and friendly, the general store often echoes with their pleasantries and a catchy tune. The only thing you can't put your finger on is the sawmill. Mention it and the townsfolk stiffen.

"It's been closed since the accident," they say.

"Jack Darke, a quiet man, tried to burn down the sawmill one night but slipped and was dragged into the buzz saw. Tragic really. But it'll reopen soon."

And yet no matter how many months pass, it never seems to reopen. Poke around up there and you'll see it's all boarded up. Do Not Enter and Danger signs everywhere. The faint hint of burnt wood. It must be close to reopening though, because quite often you'll hear that giant buzz saw start up.

None of this, however, explains why the locals get so skittish around dusk. Beware. In the town of Gold Rush…

At night.

It's true Jack Darke was a quiet man. He'd worked at the sawmill for may years, yet no one really knew him. He kept to himself and did his job without fuss or bother. And he was good at it. Jack was in his forties, he was big and strong and had gnarled hands with a vice-like grip.

He was on his own the night it all happened. It was late and he was reading in his cottage when some of the townsfolk came to his door in a panic. The young men from the sawmill had been at the tavern complaining and had set off to the sawmill intent on burning it down. Jack went to investigate. He found the men and managed to stop the fire but there was a scuffle and… well… whether it was an accident or not no one really knows, but machinery was bumped and poor Jack was pulled through the giant buzz saw.

The townsfolk felt horrible. Who wouldn't? But their men were their lifeblood. They covered up the incident and reported it as Jack who had been trying to burn down the sawmill, only he'd slipped and fallen into the buzz saw.

Now when the moon is high and the sky is clear like the night he was killed, Jack reappears and seeks revenge. In fact, when the sun goes down God help anyone who isn't boarded up inside when day turns to night.
