WhiteWater World Launches Water-Powered WOW
Dreamworld has opened the doors to WhiteWater World for the official media launch on Tuesday, 05 December 2006.

Queensland Surf Life Saving took over WhiteWater World’s Cave of Waves with a nipper carnival and a reel and belt rescue while the Westpac Lifesaver Helicopter Rescue Service dropped Dreamworld Chief Executive Officer Stephen Gregg safely to shore.

The Honourable Margaret Keech MP, Minister for Tourism, Fair Trading and Wine Industry Development was on hand the cut ‘ribbon’ flanked by WhiteWater World’s dogs, Sandy and Bluey.

Then it was time to test the rides with a bevy of celebrities and Aussie icons to take the plunge.

The stunning Erin McNought joined Australia’s Number One Bodyboarder, Mitch Rawlins and Billabong Grommits at The Green Room to experience the monster barrel.

Queensland Roar Player Chad Gibson, Champion Ironwomen and local television presenters lined up to take a spin on the Super Tubes HydroCoaster, one of only two LIM powered rocket coasters in the world.

Over at Wiggle Bay, former Brisbane Lion and TV presenter Richard Champion and his kids tried out the mini slides while swimming legend Samantha Riley and her kids made some wet and wiggly music on giant instruments complete with foaming geysers.

Nickelodeon’s Sarvo Hosts James Kerley and Dave Lawson teamed up with Camp Orange: Slimey Hollow’s Maude Garrett to launch the ultimate all day water playground for kids at Nickelodeon’s Pipeline Plunge.

Triathlete Loretta Harrop and her husband Brad Jones joined their niece and 5 very special families from the Starlight Foundation to put the giant kid’s zone through its paces.

Just metres away, Champion Ironmen Ky Hurst, Wes Berg and Ironwoman, Karla Gilbert got caught in The Rip with pro surfer Mitch Coleburn in a man-made version of Mother’s Nature’s worst.

Gold Coast Titan’s Players also dropped in to check out the action going head to head on the BRO, the only eight-lane Octopus Racer in existence.
