Mick Doohan's Motocoaster

The current version of this description is at Mick Doohan's Motocoaster.

Mick Doohan's Motocoaster is an Interim Launch roller coaster themed to Motorcycles.

Featuring 14 full size 500cc replica bikes per train and 2 sidecars for smaller riders, the Motocoaster reaches top speeds of 72km/h

Launching from 0–65 km/h in 2 seconds riders experience 605m of track, with 18 banking turns.

As the first Aussie motorbike roller coaster and lasting around 50 seconds, Dreamworld expected this ride to be a big hit for the general public. Roller coaster enthusiasts were less than impressed, with Mick Doohan's Motocoaster coming in 356th of 357th in a worldwide poll of the best steel roller coasters in its debut year.
