Sunset Walk Slingshot™ coming this Thanksgiving
World’s most popular thrill attraction with erupting volcano twist to open at Sunset Walk Orlando
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (Oct. 12, 2021) – This Thanksgiving, you’re going to have a thrilling new attraction to be thankful for! Sunset Walk Slingshot™ is on schedule to open before the holiday season kicks off with Turkey Day.
Located at Promenade – Sunset Walk Orlando, Sunset Walk Slingshot™ will stand at 240 feet tall and launch two riders up to 400 feet in the air, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph in under two seconds.
Guests will experience a tropical vibe as they wander through tiki huts surrounding the towering attraction. Once inside their gondola, they will lower deep into a volcano and begin to feel the rumble of an eruption about to occur. Smoke will begin to billow as the gondola shoots the guests straight up into the sky, reaching incredible heights and speeds in seconds.
“We’re extremely excited to open Sunset Walk Slingshot™ just in time for the start of a busy holiday season,” said Ritchie Armstrong, owner. “Guests are going to love this thrilling, new addition to Sunset Walk.”
Right down I-4, The Slingshot Group of Companies™ is also opening two world-record setting attractions at ICON Park in Orlando. The Orlando Slingshot™ will stand at 300 feet, while the Orlando Free Fall™ will stand at 430 feet, making them two of the tallest attractions in the world. They’re scheduled to open December 2021.
