BuzzSaw made its debut on September 17, 2011, and is located in the Town of Gold Rush area of Dreamworld. The ride is a Maurer X-Coaster, the same model used for the Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit at Universal Studios Florida. It features a compact circuit that is traversed by riders in just 50 seconds, with the major elements being a 151-feet-tall vertical lift hill, a heartline roll and a steep drop back into the station.
The coaster features a backstory based around a number of unexplained occurrences Gold Rush, which are said to date back to the late 1800s. BuzzSaw derives its name from the industrial machinery that is said to have killed a sawmill worker as he attempted to burn down his employer's building.
BuzzSaw's design is identical to that of Sky Wheel at Germany's Skyline park, with the ride being an "off-the-shelf" SkyLoop X-Coaster.
