Skyscraper Roller Coaster Track Design Revealed in Video

Skyscraper at Skyplex in Orlando

The intersection of I-Drive and Sand Lake Rd is in the process of a transformation and one of the most anticipated parts of that change is the new Skyscraper roller coaster that is scheduled to open in 2017.

The unique design of this coaster winds the tracks around a tall pole more than 500 feet tall, making this the world’s tallest coaster.

This week a 4 minute computer animation was released by Orlando-based US Thrill Rides showing an on-board perspective of what it will be like to be on the ride.

The cars, holding eight passengers in two rows of four, climb steadily up a track that surrounds the tower. The route down is a winding corkscrew path full of sudden drops, loops, dives, spirals, and inversions. Near the ground, the track winds around the edge of the Skyplex shopping and dining structure, as well.
