When the Skycoaster debuted at Kennywood in 1994, it was the tallest structure in the park at 180 feet and the first Skycoaster model to be permanently installed in an amusement park. Up to three riders can suit up in a harness that pulls them to the top of the ride’s tower. After the count of three, riders release themselves with a ripcord as they plummet to the ground reaching speeds of up to 75 mph!
Single Flight: $2600
Double Flight: $23.00 per flyer ($46.00 total)
Tripe Flight: $18.00 per flyer ($54.00 total)
Riders must be at least 42″ tall to ride.
**Additional fee required; see pricing above.**
What is the weight limit for the sky coaster?
Jen, there is no weight limit.
There is no individual maximum weight for the flyers – however the combined weight of all the flyers, in tandem or triple, will not exceed 850lbs.
How old do you have to be to ride by your self
Do they weight you?
are you able to print out a waiver online?
Now that I am aware of, Karen.
I got on it and im 13 you dont need to sign a waiver just sign up at the desk and wait till your time comes to get on and ride
How much would it be for 3 People to ride
As Maddie said, it would be $17.99 but that is PER RIDER. Prices are listed right on this page above. ^
Can ride alone or do you have to be with someone
Chase, you can usually ride alone, as long as it’s not too windy for single flights. You can also ride with one or two other people.
Under the height requirement, it says “addition fee required”! My Daughter is 52 1/2″, will there be an extra fee other than the $45.98?
Pam, sorry if that is a bit misleading. This just means that there is an additional fee required on top of the regular park admission. The prices listed are all you need to pay. Keep in mind, the park may change their prices without notice so be sure to check with them.
Is there a waiver that needs to be signed by someone of 18 years or older to ride this?
DO you have to show a license before riding
No because kids can ride it but their parent may have to if u are under 16
When does skycoaster close for the day
is there a waver
I have been on it with my friends and it is so much fun freaky at first but when u start to go it is really fun nothing to worry about. I am also under 16 years old so if u are young there is nothing to worry about when riding
Can you preorder the tickets online?
Unfortunately, no; you must purchase them at the park.
My son is tall enough to ride but he’s 4 years old. Do kids his age ride?
Probably not but it’s up to you
I was on it about 15 years ago. It is safe. I am afraid of heights but had to scare my self silly. This will do that I am still afraid of heights but it is a great experience. Try it and enjoy.
Do you have to ride with a person okder than 18?
Does the smallest person have to pull the cord like height wise ?
Does anybody know if they take your picture on the skycoaster?
They do not.
They used to record your flight with a video camera and you could buy the tape for an additional $15 when you were done. That’s what we did, but that was back in 1995. Don’t know if they offer something similar now with a digital recording maybe burned to a DVD.
I see it’s cheaper by how many people were joining the ride, meaning if 3 people are riding, each paying for $18.00, which I think Is so cheaper because you pay and you’re friends pay there own cool catch I found
CN you buy in advance
I have autism, anxiety and a heart condition, I rode Cheetah Hunt which is a triple launch coaster for the first time and it terrified me. I am scared of the extra weight of another person going with me, but do I have to have someone else go with me? Is this scarier than the Cheerah Hunt? I want to start facing my fear of heights before I reach 30 next year. Do or don’t?
Dont do it
