Stats on Thrill Shot for MM?

Saturday, June 30, 2001 10:23 AM
Is there any info about the fourth attraction, Thrill Shot, at MM other than it being a tower? I know it's going to shoot you up, but how high will it be? I just hope it's going to be taller than the Mallibumer.

I heard it's going to be 300+ feet tall.

I think that you have to pay 30 dollors is a rumor. Not only thats a lot, but they have a ride across acutally 2 the sky coaster, and the go carts which you have to pay for. I also dont think they are going to get a ride that will flip you over. I think if the best it will be like 300 ft high, and maybe be like Acrophobia. It has to only be one tower since thats the only room they have at that small space

They say the actual 3 tower legs will be around 250 FT. The actual height riders will be slingshot upwards is approximately 300 FT.

OK, it sounds like people know more about this ride than I thought. Please fill us in as to what Thrill Shot is exactly.

From what I've read here, it sounds like another version of an ejection seat.

The Slingshot. Thats my best typing drawing of it... The O represents the thing the people sit in, and the lines going in are the towers, and the lines going out connecting the people and the towers are bungee like cords. The pod with the people is stretched down to the ground, then released, like a slingshot, shooting the people up through the towers.

EDIT: I had to add asterics to un-screw it up.

That is an extremely small space, by Arrowhead splashdown. As I recall, a tower ride like Supreme Scream or Maliboomer would not fit...

Hmm...interesting. But the pictures showed three separate towers. The slingshot uses two.

Curiouser and curiouser!

Sfgadv has a brand new sling shot and this thing looks crazy!! I didn't notice how many towers it had but,i just stood there in amazement because it looks as though this thing will shoot you up very high.Too bad they have to upcharge for these things :( .I am wondering if they are adding these things to all SF parks.Any other SF get a Zamperla Turbo Force this year to?

Perhaps the feet of the towers are all very close together, but the towers slope away from each other as they rise. I can see how this could be an ejection seat....especially with a name like Thrillshot and a complete lack of mention in the website.
