Mick Doohan's Motocoaster is an Intamin 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.

My 5 year old son adores this ride. We are regular visitors and this is one of the better roller coasters available to kids from 110cm. While I agree it would not stack up to many roller coasters it's an excellent thrill for younger riders looking for a thrill.

I agree the back support is uncomfortable, it causes me back pain for the next day.

This coaster was really disapointing. There is not enough speed in the initial launch to sustain the ride to the end, so halfway through the course you begin to meander aimlessly.

Not really worth it
