Orlando’s entertainment complex becomes “Land of Giants” with the three tallest attractions in the world
The Orlando SlingShot™ and Orlando FreeFall™ are now open at ICON Park, making the entertainment complex the “Land of the Giants” with the three tallest rides in the world.
“The SlingShot Group now has three world record-setting attractions at ICON Park: The Orlando StarFlyer™, SlingShot and FreeFall,” said Ritchie Armstrong, Owner. “We are so excited to welcome visitors from all over the world and give them the thrill of a lifetime!”
The Orlando SlingShot™ at ICON Park stands 300 feet tall, making it the tallest slingshot in the world. The twin-tower attraction launches two passengers from an “exploding volcano” approximately 450 feet into the sky, reaching speeds of up to 100 miles.
Orlando FreeFall™ at ICON Park stands 131 meters tall, making it the tallest free-standing drop tower in the world. Thirty passengers at a time can enjoy the beautiful sites of ICON Park and I-Drive as they spin around the gigantic tower and soar toward the horizon. Once they’ve reached the top, the seats will tilt forward 30 degrees and their occupants will face the ground before plummeting nearly 400 feet at speeds in excess of 75 miles.
“ICON Park is dedicated to creating unforgettable experiences for our visitors. The world’s tallest slingshot and drop tower are great additions to our world-class lineup,” said Chris Jaskiewicz, President and CEO of ICON Park. “Between the three towering attractions of The SlingShot Group and The Wheel, the tallest observation wheel on the East Coast, ICON Park truly is the ‘Land of the Giants.'”
ICON Park is in the center of Orlando’s entertainment district. With free parking and conveniently located off I-4, this premier entertainment complex is easily accessible to any Central Floridian or Orlando tourist.
