DREAMWORLD TO CREATE NEW MOTORSPORT PRECINCT
Published 03 September 2015
Brock car collection finds new home; to open after Christmas 2015
THE Dreamworld theme park on the Gold Coast has announced plans today for a new interactive motorsports precinct that will become home to a significant collection of Peter Brock racecars.
The cars, a mixture of genuine and tribute cars formerly housed at Champion’s Brock Experience at Yeppoon in Queensland, will form a major part of the new, 6000 square metre precinct that is due to open after Christmas 2015.
The precinct will also include a re-themed rollercoaster, six state-of-the-art racing simulators plus themed dining and retail areas.
“An Australian first, this will be a high-octane revved-up experience, and while the narrative is based on motor racing, there will be something for everyone,” Dreamworld CEO Craig Davidson said of today’s announcement.
“There is nothing ‘museum’ about this. It’s a motorsport-themed thrill-ride precinct anchored by a celebration of Australian motorsport and Brock’s achievements from the 1970s through to his modern day legacy.
“We are working closely with the Brock family and our partners to ensure the attraction is authentic and like nothing experienced in Australia before.
“Our new-look coaster will be an adrenalin-fuelled hot-lap complete with its famous loop track and music pumped through the headrests.
“Guests can also race each other on the latest fully immersive simulators featuring all circuit rounds of the V8 Supercar series.”
The precinct will also include the capability of hosting corporate events for 250 people seated or 480 standing in air-conditioned comfort.
The new attraction will open to Dreamworld guests after Christmas 2015.
Given the announcement has come just prior to Father’s Day, Dreamworld has extended its ‘buy three, get one free’ Unlimited World Pass offer until Sunday September 6 – not a bad gift for any Dad.
