Does being flung into the air at 200 km per hour, whilst spinning 360 degrees and experiencing 6 G forces sound exciting to you? Probably not, but I can guarantee you it is just as crazy and amazing as it sounds. This is what you can expect when riding the Mooloolaba Missile, the newest attraction on the Mooloolaba Wharf on the Sunshine Coast.
Similar to "Sling-Shot" rides you may have seen on the Gold Coast, the Mooloolaba Missile is certainly not for the faint-hearted, or those with a weak stomach. Although, Mr Rob Lee, owner of the Missile claims that in over a decade he is yet to see anyone be sick or faint from the overwhelming thrill.
My partner and I went for the ride of our lives on the missile and the outcome was priceless (I'll leave the video to do the talking). I think I can safely say I have never held onto something as tightly as I did the frame of the missile. The view over Mooloolaba is magnificent, if you can manage to open your eyes.
