Only for the brave...or the slightly crazy. Admire the view (if you can) by day...or go at night during the dark!

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. The price, however, does dampen the overall experience. Sure, you leave with the thrill of the ride, but for $50 to throw you up in the air once, it's... More

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

The slingshot is pretty exciting! It just shoots you up into the air like a Catapult. It's over quite quickly but they let you have another go for like $10. The thrill is quite exhilarating!
