The Slingshot is both as simple and terrifying as it sounds. You’re basically a human-sized pebble being launched out of a gargantuan rubber band. After you’re done wrapping your head around that concept, brace yourself for a totally unique and totally terrifying jaunt that will deliver you the best of both worlds – a high speed launch, followed immediately by an epic freefall.
Now the height of the two enormous steel spikes that will hold the springy cable in place is only 147 feet high. And that’s just the beginning, because if you know how slingshots work, you’ll guess that whatever’s being launched – as in, you – is going to catapult far, far higher into the sky!
Strap into the harness and the giant rubber-band like cables will pull nice and taut, like a giant invisible hand pulling back that slingshot. Then suddenly you are released and go shooting in the air like a bullet, straight up 220 feet into the sky. Now that’s some serious leverage!
Of course, what goes up must come down, and you’ll plummet back down into a straight 90-degree free fall! You’ll feel the recoil as you boing and bounce up and down. Now you know how it feels to be a giant toy.
