Tower of Terror II is a launched shuttle roller coaster located at Dreamworld in Queensland, Australia. It is currently the 5th fastest roller coaster in the world. Tower of Terror II is one of only two Reverse Freefall Coaster designed by Intamin (the other being Superman: Escape From Krypton at Six Flags Magic Mountain).

History[edit | edit source]

In August 2010, Dreamworld announced that it would be flipping the car around backwards and a 676 feet tunnel would be added. The ride reopened only a few weeks later. The name changed from Tower of Terror to Tower of Terror II.
