Rider Safety Information

  • A thrill ride that swings to the height of 65 feet in a pendulum motion while spinning in a clockwise rotation. Riders will experience changes in direction and elevation as well as moments of weightlessness while aboard the ride.
  • Maximum Weight – 680 lb. per gondola
  • A shoulder harness with a between-the-legs safety belt secures each rider over the head and across the chest. Due to the nature of the restraint, this ride may not accommodate guests of a larger size.
  • Guests must have a minimum of two functioning extremities; one functioning arm and one functioning leg. Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of one functioning arm and one functioning leg if the guest has a normal center of gravity and lower extremities are sufficiently strong to support weight against the restraint under the dynamic conditions of the ride. Amputations must be at the knee or below.
  • Guests with a cervical collar, neck brace, broken collar bone, full arm cast, braced arm cast or full leg cast are not permitted to ride.
  • Guests with any type of prosthesis should not ride unless they can ensure the device is properly secured and will remain in place during the ride.
  • Alternate access is available at the ride exit. Riders will have to take several steps, on their own or with the assistance of a companion, and be capable of elevating themselves up into the seat. Please use caution when entering and exiting as the ride unit may shift. Do not use the ride restraints for support as they will shift.
