If you love thrills then this ride is for you. At a speed of 160kmph this is not a ride for the fdaint hearted. Do yourself a favour and pay a little extra to get the usb of your experience as well as the t-shirt (which you can wear with pride having survived the sling shot).

This ride is not for the faint hearted. As it's name suggests, it slingshots you high above Surfers. The acceleration, speed and height add together for an amazing and thrilling ride.

My 11 and 9 year old kids built up enough courage to do it and thoroughly enjoyed it. $95 for both kids with two t-shirts and the experience of the ride captured forever on a USB. Ride only lasts for 3-5 minutes but definitely worth it. We did it at night time and would recommend this time also. Kids have... More
