Tallest Slingshot and Drop Tower

World’s Tallest Slingshot and Drop Tower Open in Orlando’s Icon Park. We really enjoy ICON! Park, and have enjoyed all the attractions and dining available. From The Wheel to Gordon Ramsey Fish House, it is a great time. Clean and inviting, is how I like to tell others. Now the “Land of Giants” just added two more of the world’s largest attractions to its already impressive lineup. The Tallest Slingshot and Drop Tower.

The Orlando SlingShot™ at ICON Park stands at 300 feet, making it the world’s tallest slingshot. The two-tower attraction launches two riders out of an “exploding volcano” approximately 450 feet straight up into the sky, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph.

The Orlando FreeFall™ at ICON Park stands at 430 feet, making it the world’s tallest free-standing drop tower. Thirty riders at a time can embrace the beautiful sites of ICON Park and I-Drive as the ride vehicle rotates around the gigantic tower and rises high into the skyline. Once the ride vehicle reaches the top, it’ll tilt forward 30 degrees and face the ground for a brief moment before free-falling nearly 400 feet at speeds reaching over 75 mph.
