History[edit | edit source]
The ride originally opened at Luna Park in Sydney in 1995, but local residents complained about the noise, and it was eventually sold to Dreamworld. It opened at Dreamworld on December 26, 2001 and was called Cyclone.
In October 2015, the park announced that the Cyclone would be overhauled and renamed "Hot Wheels Hot Lap" as part of a collaboration with Hot Wheels, Dunlop and V8 Supercars, a motorsports company in Australia. The name was later changed to "Hot Wheels SideWinder". The roller coaster reopened on December 26, 2015 with a new sportscar-shaped train from Vekoma. A new Australian motorsports museum, racing simulators and a restaurant opened alongside the rethemed roller coaster.
