We’ve all been in the same situation. We’ve stood at the bottom of a rollercoaster and all your friends are getting excited about the impending ride. You’re terrified but somehow peer pressure has found you sitting on the front row and the ride attendant is clipping you into the safety harness. Gulp. See ya!
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE rollercoasters but I cannot, I repeat, I cannot deal with anything that drops from a height. The thought of Falcon’s Fury at Busch Gardens
terrified me, but exactly like I explained above I found myself on this ride on a trip to Florida, being egged on by so-called friends. You know what? I survived. Not only that, I actually enjoyed it. It wasn’t as bad as I thought, I promise.
Now that I’ve taken on Falcon’s Fury, what other terrifyingly brilliant experiences can I try?
The world’s tallest swing ride which stands at 450-ft. You may need to hold someone’s hand for this and luckily each swing has space for two. You’re both secured with a seat belt and an in-between-the-legs harness. Eek!
Slightly shorter than StarFlyer but potentially even scarier is SkyCoaster which proudly reaches heights of 300ft. There are two in Central Florida, Kissimmee which is the tallest and one on International Drive which is a little smaller at only 250-ft tall. Both are guaranteed to make you scream. Some of the Ocean Florida team members checked it out, see below.
North America’s tallest body slide and the world’s tallest drop capsule slide. With impressive accolades, you’re going to have to close your eyes. When the floor opens, there’s only one way down.
Take on the rollercoasters on your next holiday
