Three Breathtaking Experiences in One Ride

Ever wonder what it’s like to fly like a bird – at extreme speeds? Xtreme Skyflyer gives you the experiences of hang gliding, skydiving and swinging – all in the same ride.  After you get strapped into the harness – face down, mind you – a lift cable elevates you to a peak of 153 feet above the ground. At the top, the rider operator will instructor you to pull the cord. Because you pull the ripcord yourself, you’re in control, right? Um, no. Not, really. The second you rip the cord, gravity kicks in and you free fall at speeds up to 60 miles per hour down, down, down toward the earth, skimming it by mere feet. You then swing back and forth until it’s all over. Whew! This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll never forget. Xtreme Skyflyer is not included with park admission; a separate fee is required to experience this heart-thumping attraction.

Rider Safety Information

Min Height
  • A high-thrill Skycoaster attraction made to simulate flight.  Riders are hoisted 150 feet into the air.  They control their own ride experience by pulling the ripcord, initiating their tethered freefall descent and flight.  The sensation of flight as riders fall is similar to skydiving and hang gliding, with riders reaching speeds up to 60 miles per hour.
  • Guests must be 48" tall to ride
  • Maximum Weight - 850 lb. per flight      
  • Riders wear a full body harness that supports the rider in a prone position.  The harness is connected to the flight support cables.
  • Guests are required to have a minimum of one  functioning leg and by reason of the restraint system inherent in the flight suit, it is necessary that the rider possesses two arms sufficient for proper functioning of the flight suit be maintained.  Lower extremities must be of sufficient enough length to be contained and restrained by a leg strap. Proper functioning of the flight suit must be maintained for riders without appropriate center of gravity.
