The sky over Sunset Walk at Margaritaville Resort Orlando in Kissimmee will be getting a little crowded with the opening of the Sunset Walk Slingshot™ this fall.
The attraction’s towers will stand at 240 feet tall and launch two riders up to 400 feet in the air, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph in under two seconds.
According to the description:
“Guests will experience a tropical vibe as they wander through tiki huts surrounding the towering, volcano-inspired attraction.
Once inside their gondola, they will lower deep into the volcano and begin to feel the rumble of an eruption about to occur. Smoke will begin to billow as the gondola shoots the guests into the sky, reaching incredible heights and speeds in seconds.”
The Slingshot Group of Companies™ will be responsible for the construction, which is expected to be completed in a few months. They are also responsible for the two new world-record setting attractions due to open at ICON Park in Orlando this December.
Once I hear of a definitive opening date, I’ll let you know.
