Subject title here!

Each Supa-City we do an expo in has a different flavour and a different selection of things which make it uniquely awesome. The Gold Coast is no exception and in fact has a whole raft of exclusive elements which make us Supa-Excited to be there!

In terms of Guests we have three Gold Coast Exclusives who are making their way to the land of sun, sand and surf. On top of our huge Melbourne Line-up we have:

  • Sylvester McCoy: The 7th incarnation of Dr Who and more recently seen as Radagast the Brown in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
  • Todd Farmer: The creative juggernaut behind My Bloody Valentine 3-D, Messengers and soon Halloween 3-D
  • Billy Tan: The Brilliant artist on Uncanny X Men, Schism, Shadowland and New Avengers.

Add on another 53 or so other guests from our Melbourne event and you've got a heck of a show!

But of course Its not all about Supa-Star guests, there's so much going on in the Gold Coast as a part of Q-POW (Queensland Pop Culture Week) and we're making sure you know all about it!


The party is really starting now with tickets on sale for Dreamworld: Supanova After Dark, Supanova’s official After-Party on the Gold Coast, Saturday night April 20th, 6.30pm to 10pm!

Ever wondered what a Harajuku girl looks like hurtling towards the ground at up to 135km an hour on the Giant Drop; wanted to see a masked hero suspended upside down on the BuzzSaw; or your favourite Star Wars character take on one of the bad guys down Ocean Parade? Then all of your dreams are about to come true at SUPANOVA’S DREAMWORLD AFTER DARK!

As a part of Q-Pow! The Queensland Pop Culture Week, Dreamworld will be having a fun night of rides, DJ’s, costumes, food and much more!

Keep an eye out for your favourite Supanova celebrities, indulge in a bit of cosplay, take in a special Gold Coast Film Festival screening, and of course test your lungs on any of the Big8 thrill rides!

This awesome event also gives fans a chance to see the first nine minutes of Star Trek: Into Darkness!

There’s two ways to get your tickets for a Special Cheaper Rate for Supanova fans. You can buy in groups of 4 or more online to get in for $29.99 each or you can turn up and show them your Supanova wristband on the night for the same price!
