ICON Park Orlando has announced that not one, but two new rides will be coming to the park in 2020 - The Orlando Slingshot and The Orlando Gyro Drop Tower.
Once built, both will be record-breaking attractions. The Orlando Slingshot will tower at 300 feet high, making it the world’s tallest slingshot ride at almost 50 stories up! The ride will also feature dual loading, allowing guest to load into the ride while other guests are experiencing the attraction.
Meanwhile, The Orlando Gyro Drop Tower will take riders way up above the ICON Park’s skyline, reaching a whopping 400 feet in the air. This means that it will be the world’s tallest free-standing drop tower! Once at the top, riders will then experience a surprise twist before a 350-foot free fall back to Earth at 75 miles per hour.
Speaking about the new rides, Chris Jaskiewicz, president and CEO of ICON Park, said “ICON Park is already known for having the tallest observation wheel on the East Coast and the world’s tallest swing ride. We’re beyond thrilled to add two more jaw-dropping attractions to our destination.”
