Ekka Media Kit 2023



Not only does it dazzle and enchant but it features three levels of thrills. Kids will perform a balancing act as they cross the vibrating floor and hang on tighter than a trapeze artist as they attempt the rope bridges. You’ll find the Enchanted Circus in the Kids Carnival area (Q-15). XSCREAM SOUNDWAVE Extreme Wait for the beat, and screams, as XSCREAM Soundwave lights up B105 Sideshow Alley (E-10). With bright flashing lights, lasers and the latest music tunes pumping, this ride is like a special B105 Sideshow Alley nightclub, without your feet firmly on the ground! SPEED 2 Extreme Got the need for speed? Reaching speeds of 120km an hour, Speed 2 is certainly a B105 Sideshow Alley (E-10) favourite and one for those who enjoy the faster things in life. It rotates at more than 10 revolutions per minute - the definition of a thrill ride! CROWN FERRIS WHEEL Family Friendly The crown of the show shines bright above B105 Sideshow Alley (E-10). Sitting sky high, the popular Crown Ferris Wheel features half a million dollars worth of lights, including on both sides of the Ferris Wheel, in and under the gondolas and on both sides of the towers. The Ferris Wheel has 26 fully panoramic gondolas, ensuring the most spectacular views of the Ekka and surrounds, and can be enjoyed by everyone - it’s the only travelling wheelchair friendly Ferris Wheel as the gondolas have no central pole. TWISTER Family Friendly Twist and turn this Ekka! A fun ride for the whole family, with enough speed to get the adrenaline pumping.
