Front and centre of Dreamworld's mega facelift is Rivertown, an 'Indiana Jones'-esque adventure land (a concept by design team Pico Play) that's set to become the go-to spot when it launches in late 2024. Think deep jungle vibes by the serene Murrissippi River, wrapped around a mix of classic and fresh attractions that'll have both the young and young-at-heart buzzing.

The Indian Jones theme was designed by Pico Play.

The crown jewel of Rivertown? The Jungle Rush rollercoaster, a world-first thrill machine, courtesy of the Dutch coaster wizards at Vekoma. This beast boasts an inclined turntable—a slick feature that spins each car individually—setting up some mind-bending maneuvers that you won’t find anywhere else. With a hefty price tag of $35 million, Jungle Rush is not just any ride; it's a monumental drop of adrenaline that promises to rival the legends of Disneyland's Indiana Jones Adventure.

Vintage Cars Adventure Gets a Rebrand
