I thought this was going to be just another sky ride, but this thing looks incredible. I'd probably actually pay to ride it. There are at least four different experiences. The slow lift to the top. Standing on the platform. Taking your swing. Then, going down the drop tower. Very impressive.

That new style drop tower with seat belt only is TERRIFYING!!! Can't wait!


Plus the super sling is absolutely ridiculous, especially when you can get it really flipping

I hadn't seen this thread back in January, but yeah, take my money. I'd love to do this!

With what must be very low capacity, it seems better suited for adventure/tourist areas like Pigeon Forge, Vegas, Niagara Falls, etc., than in a large park that already has a sky coaster or drop ride. Still, I hope this concept proves itself and we see more of these.

One last thought -- that railing could stand to be a little bit higher; I think walking around up there would scare me more than the rides. :oops:

Considering some of the Intamin 2nd gen towers only have 1 or 2 sides open with 4 per gondola, it could probably work at a larger park, especially if they put 2 per side. But then again a lot of major parks already have drop towers.
