Sky Coaster

Take a delirious leap into extreme exhilaration!

Hey, did anybody notice that vast steel arch towering over the park 100 feet in the air? Pretty hard to miss. This is Sky Coaster, an utterly unique opportunity that lets you experience the thrill of skydiving, hang-gliding and bungee jumping all rolled into one! You’ll make your way to the top of the tower before taking a flying leap from the peak with nothing but sky to catch your fall!

Strap into the harness with a friend or two and wave goodbye to the ground. You’ll stare straight down as you are hoisted up by a slim cable, floating higher and higher, until you’re so high you’ll only hear the wind as you dangle 10 stories in the air. There’s no turning back now—the only way to get down is to fall.

Take a deep breath, pull the ripcord, and away you go! In a split second you are released and plummeting back towards the earth at inhuman speeds in a state of total free fall. As you plunge toward the ground, there are no sounds except the wind racing by, and of course, the screams of your friend. Or was that you screaming?

But as soon as the steel cable catches your fall, the momentum of the drop will swing you powerfully forward.  And now you’re completely airborne, soaring through the atmosphere as the ripcord swings you above the park!  This is a once-in-a-lifetime thrill normally reserved for hang gliders and birds.

Additional fee required.

Leeches suck your blood. Snakes lick your eyes. And bats will fight each otehr for an unpunctured bit of your flesh.

An enterprising man once made a fortune exploring – and exploiting – the land surrounding the Sky Coaster. While fighting his way up river, he endured leeches that stuck to him and sucked his blood, oily snakes as thick as a man’s leg, and sickly, whining bats that disturbed his sleep.

Halfway through the forest, the man’s business was abruptly completed when he encountered a tribe that had never imagined there was an outside world. On this very spot, now the coaster’s most terrifying turn, they killed – and ravenously ate – everyone in his group, except the intrepid entrepreneur.

A foul-smelling drink was forced down his throat, while tribal dancers performed their sick rituals all around him. They applied their leeches, called forth the snakes, and caused the bats to attack him. Then, his mind was invaded and made diseased by the tribe’s dreaded chief.

Finally released but still trembling, the man returned home as fast as he could. While he was at last asleep in his own bed, the tribal spirits gnawed their way through his brain and out his ears to freedom. To exact their revenge on “civilized” others like him, they settled in a grove of trees, not far from here. Ever since the park was built, they’ve terrorized our guests. On coasters and spinners alike, their victims ride in innocence, until it’s time for dinner.

Then, these spirits creep. They invade youthful minds and slowly, yet tastefully, feast until dawn, satisfied that – another night yet – their primitive mission has been fulfilled.
