Movie World has invested $30 million in homage to the greatest Heroes Vs Villains rivalry this side of the universe.

The new DC Rivals HyperCoaster is the longest, fastest and the highest coaster in the southern hemisphere.

I had the total pleasure of riding the HyperCoaster at its official launch on Thursday night.




Trust me, I am no JOKER, this ride has you plummeting down a huge 61.6m nosedive in a FLASH. The BRANIAC at Mac Coaster who designed this monster ride must have received a GREEN LANTERN to go ahead and give us a DEATH STROKE! (DC what I did there?)

Made of SUPERMAN Steel, the hyper coaster has you constantly feeling like you are CHEETAH death on the 1.4km track. Thrill-seekers will find their nirvana screaming down the fuchsia track at 115km/h. The HyperCoaster CAN send you around a 40 meter high non-inverted loop in REVERSE, FLASH speeds of 90km on a titled half loop that climbs 26.8meters only to HOLY BATMAN dive straight back down again, if you choose to ride the reverse seats! You know, in case experiencing the 480-degree helix for 150meters in seven seconds facing forward isn't enough?





On Thursday night we were invited to not only to experience the new HyperCoaster (in our best cocktail attire ) but to celebrate this momentous occasion with Movie World's CEO Clark Kirby officially announcing the ride as OPEN!

He sure knows how to throw a party. There were two DJ acts on a revolving stage, a much-loved open bar and an abundance of food choices.



Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Super Girl were also on hand to keep the festivities under control while The Joker, Poison Ivy, and Cat Woman were loose on the Movie World Streets.

As a huge DC fan, I was ever so slightly disappointed that Green Arrow or Black Canary didn't make an appearance on the murals but maybe one day...?




DC Rivals joins the growing list of DC-themed thrills such as
Arkham Asylum, Superman Escape, Batwings Spaceshot and Green Lantern Coaster.

This is a must do attraction for all the thrill seekers, head on down to Movie World. I dare you to laugh in the Jokers face as you enjoy The tallest, longest and fastest HyperCoaster you will find this summer!
