Two brand-new, record-setting attractions are coming to International Drive next summer. ICON Park™ will be a new epicenter for thrills with three of the world’s tallest attractions: ICON Park Slingshot™, ICON Park Drop Tower and Orlando StarFlyer™.
The ICON Park Slingshot™ is the world’s tallest slingshot ride at 300 feet. The two-tower attraction will launch two riders out of an “exploding volcano” approximately 450 feet straight up into the sky and reach speeds of up to 100 mph.
Standing at 430 feet, the ICON Park Drop Tower is the world’s tallest free-standing drop tower. Thirty riders will be able to embrace the sites of ICON Park and I-Drive as the tower rotates around the gigantic tower and rises high into the skyline. Once the ride vehicle reaches the top, it’ll tilt forward 30 degrees and face the ground for a brief moment before free falling nearly 400 feet at speeds reaching out over 75mph.
“The Slingshot Group of Companies™ is committed to bringing the biggest thrills to Orlando,” said Ritchie Armstrong, Owner. “We’re very excited to open the world’s tallest slingshot and free-standing drop tower at ICON Park to stand opposite of the Orlando StarFlyer, the world’s tallest swing ride.” Along with the two new attractions, the Slingshot Group of Companies operates the 450-foot Orlando StarFlyer, the world’s tallest swing ride.
“ICON Park is constantly growing and expanding our entertainment options for locals and tourists alike,” said Chris Jaskiewicz, president and CEO of ICON Park. “We’re proud to welcome these two record-setting attractions to the Orlando Entertainment District and look forward to the joy and adrenaline they will bring our guests.”
