My wife has been trying for several years to get me to go on the slingshot and I eventually relented. So glad i did. It is such an amazing ride. Only problem it is is over too quick.

my son and his friend went on this and loved every minute that they were on it, once they were done they got to choose if they wanted the thrill on dvd or on usb which was great.

This is very expensive and only lasts about 30 seconds. $55 for 1 person. If you don't mind being shot about 200 feet in the air in 1 second, then go for it.

We were so excited looking at the video option which could capture our adventure and we wasted $100 for just 3mins of ride as we opted for a video + 2nd ride for $10 each... our video goes blank saying "no signal" 70% of the time... I am sure people in management knew that its a disastrous video yet gave... More

It is placed abit far from the main area but it's a must. It is twice the height of what we have in my country (malaysia) and it looks scary as hell. When i tried it there was no one around but just me and the two staff. They told that at the end of the ride i get to... More

These are actually fairly common rides which can be found at many events and fairgrounds (well, in Europe and the US anyway). I've done a few of them and this is a lot slower and more gentle than the others. It's also about twice the price of the others I've done too. It's definitely not a once in a lifetime... More

Its not cheap at $30 each then $10 for an additional go, however it is a hell of an experience. so much fun and laughs to be had on this ride.
