The Sunshine Coast has welcomed its first ever tier 1 thrill ride with the launch of the SX360 at Aussie World theme park at Palmview. As Australia’s tallest and fastest 360-degree pendulum swing, it is bound to be a hit with adrenalin junkies. The ride reaches speeds of 80km per hour while launching 32m into the air and completing four inversions up to 5Gs, which is a never-before-seen feature on this style of ride in Australia. The Park is also building its first rollercoaster. The spinning coaster will be a classic medium-sized rollercoaster designed for all ages, featuring seven cars, seating up to four people each, that simultaneously spins while moving around the track. The rollercoaster car will reach a height of 14m before twisting and turning along the track at speeds of up to 72km per hour.
