Master Steel was commissioned by amusement park rides manufacturer Mack Rides GmbH & Co KG to provide the Joker sign frame for DC Rivals Hypercoaster in Warner Bros. Movie World. Sitting over 70 metres atop the ride’s highest lift hill, the 13-metre tall sign is the hypercoaster’s most prominent detail that is visible from the Gold Coast’s major highways.
DC Rivals Hypercoaster is regarded as the longest, fastest, and tallest hypercoaster that is inspired by the rivalries between DC Super Heroes and Super Villains. Launched in 2017, the Batmobile-like train runs at 115 km/h along the 1.4-kilometre track. The experience peaks at its 61.6-metre lift hill─dubbed as the Joker’s Lair─which takes patrons on an 89-degree vertical drop.
Warner Bros. Movie World is located at the 154-hectare entertainment precinct at Oxenford, Queensland. It is operated by the Village Roadshow’s Theme Park Division and home to about 30 attractions, including 17 rides, various shows, parades, and other experiences.
