After the count of three, riders release themselves with a ripcord as they plummet to the ground reaching speeds of up to 75 mph!

    • 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.

  15. Does the smallest person have to pull the cord like height wise ?

  16. Does anybody know if they take your picture on the skycoaster?

    • 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.

  17. 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

    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?
