Steel Taipan is a steel launched roller coaster at Dreamworld in Coomera, Queensland, Australia. The ride was manufactured by Mack Rides. It is a near copy of Blue Fire at Europa Park. The attraction opened on 15 December 2021.[1]


Permits were first filed for the ride on 22 August 2019, with the ride being officially announced by the park on the same day.[2]

In the summer of 2020, track pieces began to arrive at Dreamworld.[3]


A taipan is a species of venomous snake native to Australia.[4]



Little is presently known about this ride other than that it represents $30m AUD of a $70m AUD expansion of Dreamworld that includes new rides and slides for the waterpark. The ride is a Mack Rides Launch Coaster; it is said to have been inspired by Blue fire Megacoaster at Europa Park, but it has many different elements to the standard Blue Fire layout, such as a backwards vertical spike and swing launch as well as a spinning back car.[5]


5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 20 riders per train.
