So, how do you do it? You have a choice of six high-impact 3D flicks, right? Every film has a genre and a goal. Take, for example, Neon Ninja. Army of robots pursues your crew in Neo Tokyo. To evade them and prevent them from stealing the contents of a top-secret box, you must zip and zoom!
There is also a horror genre, and the 3D film is called Zombie. You have a simple task on your first night of patrol, and that is in a tranquil town. Simple, right? Yes, but not in a zombie-infested town! To beat them off and survive the night, you'll need to be quick on the draw!
Other 3D films in Ripley's 7D Moving Theatre include Los Banditos, Carnival, Robot Riot and Werewolves.
This one isn't an attraction, but it will take you to several attractions. Go Ballooning.com is a Gold Coast-based ballooning company.
