Introducing the Orlando Slingshot - the world's tallest slingshot ride at 300' tall....


The Slingshot ride on iDrive is 390ft tall and referred to as "The worlds tallest Slingshot ride" ... so how would a 300' tall slingshot be the worlds tallest?

I think the current one shoots you up to 390ft but the towers themselves aren't that tall.
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

We stopped by Icon Park yesterday after grabbing dinner nearby... It looks like they’re getting ready to start site work soon!

I still haven't ridden the Orlando Eye, but these additions will give me more reasons to visit this park.

Ah, that makes sense! But HOLY CRAP!! The one that is there already is terrifying enough! I can't imagine one any taller!! But now I am even more excited to ride it! Can't wait to give this, and the drop tower a go when they open! :br
Bigger is not always better.
