NAT BARR pulls back the curtain of the global theme park industry on 7NEWS SPOTLIGHT


Nothing makes you feel more alive than the visceral feeling of fear itself.

Whether you’re upside down, down under or right side up, dangling in weightless suspension or bracing for the sharp drop, there’s a kind of rush all over the world… and its name is terror.

This Sunday, Sunrise’s Natalie Barr goes to the edge in a 7NEWS Spotlight special investigation as she reveals the highs and lows, twists and turns of the multi-billion-dollar global theme park industry.

From an Aussie coaster that’s as old as the Titanic, to the newest, most hair-raising and death-defying contraptions on earth, 7NEWS Spotlight crosses continents in a wild roller coaster ride across Australia and the United States to uncover the very best and the worst.

Meet the families who can’t get enough chasing the greatest thrill on earth, and the people whose lives were tragically and inextricably changed in an instant.

Plus shocking revelations about Australia’s biggest ride disasters and how an industry locked down by COVID plans to rise again.

Pull down your safety harness and buckle up as 7NEWS Spotlight goes behind the screams to bring you the ride of your life.
