The world’s tallest slingshot and drop tower attractions, Orlando SlingShot and Orlando FreeFall, are now open at Icon Park on International Drive.
The Orlando SlingShot stands at 300 feet, making it the world’s tallest. The two-tower attraction launches two riders out of an “exploding volcano” approximately 450 feet straight up into the sky, reaching speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.
The Orlando FreeFall towers at 430 feet, making this attraction also the world’s tallest of its kind, a free-standing drop tower. Thirty riders at a time can take in the sights of Icon Park and International Drive as the ride vehicle rotates around the tower and rises high into the sky. Upon reaching the top of the tower, the ride vehicle will tilt forward 30 degrees and face the ground for a moment before free-falling nearly 400 feet at speeds reaching over 75 miles per hour.
“The SlingShot Group has created the ‘Land of the Giants,”” said Ritchie Armstrong, owner. “We now have three world record-setting attractions at Icon Park — The Orlando StarFlyer, SlingShot and FreeFall. We’re excited to welcome guests from all over the world and give them the thrill of a lifetime!”
Tickets for all three of The SlingShot Group’s attractions at Icon Park can be purchased onsite. Tickets for the FreeFall and StarFlyer are $12 each, while the SlingShot is $30. Combo packages are available as well, ranging from $20-$50. All prices include sales tax.
