Photo TR: Adventure World


Recommended Posts

As our summer is coming to an end here in Oz, i thought i'd better take the 10 minute drive to my local theme park and take a few photo's before Adventure World closes for another season.

 

Adventure World is the only park in Western Australia, in fact, it's the only park for about 2000+ miles in any direction. It has two coasters and a couple of flat rides, but its mainly known as the best place to cool off in summer with it's waterslides.

 

I've been coming here for about 20 years now and although the park is lacking any big coasters, i still enjoy a few visits each season.

I'll finish off with this picture of the bumper boats and Bounty's Revenge. Thanks for checking out my Adventure World TR.

All of the old go-cart and paddle boat bodies, how sad.

Whistlestop Express has seen better days.

My dad took me to the rear of the park to show me the dump, otherwise known as the 'grave yard for all of the old rides'.

...and saw these guys getting their Dominoes Pizza delivered to the park entrance, respect.

We then jumped into the golf buggy for a drive around the park.

We went into the fenced off area of Rampage while the ride was operating for some close up action. I'ts all smiles here, but when the ride started, i have to say that having all that weight screaming down on top of you so close, was damn scary.

mmmmmmm, control room.

The Rampage, it was here that i met up with my dad, who works maintenence at Adventure World. He took me on a little 'behind the scenes' tour of the park.

This coaster isnt too bad, it's just a shame that this is all we have.

The kiddie area is pretty good, theres plenty to keep them occupied.

Getting back to the park, what do we have here? Yep, it's a credit, just not a very good one.

So, what do Koala's do exactly? well, nothing really, just like the next featured lazy Aussie icon...the Kangaroo.

Adventure World also has a wildlife section, are you ready to witness the energetic and busy lives of Australian wildlife?

Thats what I love about living on The Gold Coast is our parks are open 364 days a year, only problem is because I work at them I kind of dont visit them anymore.

 

Deano love your photo trip report as I never really seen much of Adventure World and very cool photos of the ride grave yard good stuff.

Thanks Rabid Disney, maybe you could lend us SupermanEscape for next season???

 

^ Lousy Gold Coast.

 

I never new Adventure World actually had Rampage. I thought only Dreamworld had one, and probably some park in Japan. Well there you go, you learn something everyday.

 

Rampage is heaps smaller than the one at Dreamworld, i dont actually fit in it being 6'5 so i've never ridden it, i've ridden the one at DW though.

 

 

Thanks for the TR, looks like a nice park. Those are some serious water slides you got there. And those koalas are so CUUUUUTE!! They could have a lazy contest with my bulldog.

 

Wow, that must be one lazy bulldog.

 

That was a great TR! What is that going over the entrance of the park - is it a pedal yourself sky ride?

 

It sure is a pedal yourself skyride, hard work, but good fun.

 

 

 

 

Thanks for the comments guys.

^I actually remember riding on that train many years ago.

 

Your right, it is well spread out, theres a lot of space for new rides though. The latest news is that the coaster will be demolished in a year or so and that there's a water coaster going in. I hope this is true, but i'll believe it when i see it.
