New 350 foot ride in Central Florida

While it's not technically a coaster I figured it is worth mentioning.  Old Town in Kissimmee Florida has began construction on a Giant Sling Shot style attraction that will shoot riders over 350 feet in the air.  That is higher than their insane Skycoaster that stands 300 ft tall.

Here are some photos: Giant Sling Shot

Wow...that ride must be freaky. I wonder if Old Town ever gets big enough we'll see a giga coaster...:)

I doubt that Old Town will ever get big enough for a giga seeing as USF and WDW are 2 miles down the road!  I think that their skycoaster is just fine!  Talk about something that is terrifying!  Now all they need to add is a 500 foot tall version of a SkyScraper and they're all set!
