Generally, we’re not huge fans of the dark. Many a late night horror movie we really shouldn’t have been watching at age eight made it so.
There comes a time though, when all fully grown adults must face their extremely irrational fears and that time is now. And with good reason.
Park after Dark is back at Dreamworld friends and that is a reason to venture out at night if ever we’ve heard one.
Never had the pleasure? Allow us to enLIGHTen you.
Park after Dark is, as you might expect, a Dreamworld nighttime adventure but with added benefits going during the day just can’t provide.
For example, this Saturday night (April 13th) marks the beginning of 2019’s event series and to mark that opening, Neon Nights will take to the skies.
One of Australia’s leading DJs, Emma Lancaster, will light up Dreamworld’s Main Street with an epic dance party while Skylighter Fireworx will make some magic with a dazzling display of fireworks.
The family owned biz has performed at the Sydney Olympic Games as well as New Years Eve events on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane, plus over 700 further events each year. So you can expect quite the show.
Not to mention, Dreamworld will be alight with a mixture of neon lights, lasers, UV lights, flames and special effects. It’s set to be a real treat for your senses.
There’ll also be roving neon performers painting guests with fluorescent paint, fire twirlers and folks rolling around in illuminated aqua balls. Pretty much anything light related is happening and that’s just the first event of the season.
Of course, you can still jump on your favourite rides, which darkness seems to add a whole new level of excitement too.
The literal cherry on top is that Dreamworld will be introducing a new spin to the Park After Dark menu; bringing the best street eats via an array of local food trucks to tantalise your tastebuds.
So a sweet DJ set, spine-tingling rides in the dark and more neon lights than you could possibly imagine. What a time.
Don’t miss Dreamworld’s 2019 inaugural Park after Dark experience this weekend (and all the ones after that).
See you there. We won’t even be scared.
Tickets start from $19.
