Check the latest updates on ride closures

Dreamworld invest in maintaining the quality and fun of their rides. As the parks operate all year, each attraction must go down for maintenance at some stage during the year. We know it can be disappointing to rock up to ride closures.

So, to avoid any disappointment, it's best to check how the rides are tracking with maintenance which are subject to change with weather conditions.

Hot tip: While you’re on the site, check out the latest map and time of each character appearances so you can meet your favourites.


Booking in QLD or NSW's school holiday period?

You’re in luck, with every ticket you receive one bonus skip the queue perk. So, skip the long queue for the fun coaster.

Hot tip: use this when the lines are at their longest to maximise it!

Dreamworld is part of the Sunflower Program

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower program is designed to empower people, allowing them to voluntarily share their disability or condition that may not be outwardly apparent. By wearing the sunflower lanyard or wristbrand, you’ll allow Dreamworld staff to recognise you may require additional time or support.


Everyone can have fun

All the main bathrooms, shopping and dining facilities have wheelchair friendly access. Dreamworld have a limited number of manual wheelchairs for hire at a first-in, first-come basis for a $4 cost. For more info on your specific needs, head to the Dreamworld site for details.


Summer is only fun with a splash.

Enjoy the Seabed Splash where you can have fun in the water parks. This zone is opened from 10:30am – 4:00pm with some variation.

Hot potato! Hot potato! New Dreamworld kids rides

The Wiggles have new rides for the little ones. Dreamworld is now boarding for the Big Red Plane and Big Red Boat.

Hire lockers

Leave your valued goods and knick knacks in the lockers. Don’t want to be carrying that everywhere if there’s no need.

Don’t forget to slip, slop, slap

Down under, the sun is always there (no matter the season)... so don’t let the sunburn ruin the good vibes.

Can you bring your own food into theme parks?

Dreamworld allows food and drinks with a medical reason only. WhiteWater World allow you to bring your own snacks and nibbles.

And that’s it. With all these tips, you should be ready for all good days in Dreamworld. Don’t forget to tag us in your social pictures @experienceoz for a chance to be featured.
