Two new record-breaking attractions coming to Orlando's ICON Park

Two new record-breaking attractions are coming to Orlando's ICON Park on International Drive.

The entertainment complex announced Thursday that the Orlando Slingshot and the Orlando Gyro Drop Tower will open 2020. 




"We've had such great success with StarFlyer, we can't wait to bring the Orlando Slingshot and Orlando Gyro Drop Tower to the world-class destination of ICON Park," said Ritchie Armstrong, partner of Slingshot Group of Companies. "We love ICON Park and hope to continue working together to bring exciting attractions to Orlando."

According to a press release from ICON Park, the Orlando Slingshot will be the world's tallest slingshot, towering 300 feet in height. 

"Riders will experience the adrenaline rush of a lifetime as they are catapulted 450 feet into the air - nearly fifty stories high!"

The Orlando Gyro Drop will also set a record as the world's tallest free-standing drop tower standing 400 feet tall.

"The attraction begins with an intense climb as the ride gyrates around the tower until it reaches the top. After an unexpected twist, riders hearts will be racing as they freefall 350 feet back to Earth traveling up to 75 miles per hour."

Both attractions will join the well-known StarFlyer to help cement ICON Park as an iconic local and tourist destination.
