Skycoaster® is more of a 'flight' than a ride! 1-3 flyers are suited in a nylon harness &then attached to a cable that pulls them, Superman-style, to the top of the launch tower. From 180 feet above ground, riders release themselves with a parachute like ripcord...then free-fall at approximately 75 mph!
