No one knew where it came from and what exactly it was about to do... and why.
Now Screamscape shows the same ride at the IAAPA. Its a Star Flyer by (italian?) company Fun Time.
I thought I´d have no fear of heights, but this ride looks downright scary. The idea of sitting in a typical little chair flying at an 45° angle 2oo ft above the ground is frightening. But this baby will then drop around 60 ft. sending the chairs out to a 90° angle. INSANE!
Screamscape mentions that the ride awaits its TÜV approval and might then go to Kissime. So I guess that the one they erected in Vienna is the model that will now be tested by the TÜV team.
I just wonder how they stabilize the chains and seats while dropping the whole thing.
Seeing that I've done the Sky Coaster at Old Town (the 300 footer for those who don't recall), I'll have to say that this attraction is where I will draw the line.
You're whirling around a swing 200 ft in the air at 53 Mph and then you suddenly drop 60 feet? I hate to say it but count me out on that one, I'm okay with swings but that's just nuts. From the pictures on the forum it looks just as crazy as it sounds.
Watch me ride it anyways if one of those pops up around here. ;) I remember saying that I wasn't going to do the Sky Coaster when I first saw it in person.
looks like they plan to have one at Old Towne in Orlando!!! hopefully this is true, as I live 15 minutes away. I just hope it isn't priced as high as top fuel drag race. I want to, but I can't justify 27 dollars just for 2 seconds. I will someday, once the price goes down.
