2022 looks to be another big year for Florida tourism, and at Orlando’s ICON Park, it won’t be just a big year, it’s going to be a taller year!
When ICON Park’s Slingshot and Drop Tower open on Tuesday they will be adding over 700 feet of soaring thrills to the Orlando Entertainment District’s skyline. ICON Park is already the home to the world’s tallest swing ride and one of the tallest observation wheels in the world, but with the addition of these new “world’s tallest” thrill rides, adrenaline junkies will be standing in line to experience these new giants!
ICON Park Slingshot
The all-new ICON Park Slingshot will turn up the heat by lowering riders into the belly of a churning volcano. As the mountain of magma erupts, guests will launch riders 450 feet in the air at 100 screaming miles per hour! After reeling to the sensation of momentary weightlessness, thrill-seekers will experience an exhilarating rush as they plummet back to Earth. No doubt about it, this tantalizingly terrifying new attraction is not for the faint of heart. If you want to work up to riding the world’s tallest slingshot, we recommend a few practice flights on the Orlando Slingshot at the Orlando Entertainment District’s Magical Midway!
ICON Park Drop Tower
Standing a shimmering 430 ft. tall, the ICON Park Drop Tower will carry riders 40 stories up into the Orlando sky. After a brief pause to take in the stunning vista of a bustling I-Drive, riders will take a white-knuckle free fall at 75 mph. Boasting one of the fastest, smoothest ride systems to date, the ICON Park Drop Tower promises to bring high-speed exhilaration that is truly the “top” of the line. So, stow those hats and glasses and hang on to your courage as you take the plunge!
It looks like 2022 is going to be filled with thrills on an “all-new” level, and it’s going to happen at Orlando’s ICON Park. Get ready… because the giants are coming!
