ICON Park unveils two record-breaking attractions coming in 2020

ICON Park, a walkable entertainment destination in the heart of Orlando’s International Drive, is thrilled to announce two new attractions. The Orlando Slingshot and the Orlando Gyro Drop Tower are sure to satisfy any thrill-seeker’s appetite.

What to Expect

Known as the world’s tallest slingshot, the Orlando Slingshot is an attraction towering 300 feet in height. Riders will experience the adrenaline rush of a lifetime as they are catapulted 450 feet into the air. That’s nearly fifty stories high! The Orlando Slingshot will feature innovative dual-loading, allowing guests to be loading while another is experiencing the attraction.

Icon Park will welcome two new attractions in 2020.

The Orlando Gyro Drop Tower will raise riders high above the ICON Park skyline. The attraction will reach 400 feet tall, making it the world’s tallest free-standing drop tower. The attraction begins with an intense climb as it gyrates around the tower until it reaches the top. After an unexpected twist, riders hearts will be racing as they freefall 350 feet back to Earth traveling up to 75 miles per hour.

Slated to open in 2020, the Orlando Slingshot and Orlando Gyro Drop Tower are owned by Slingshot Group of Companies. Last year, Slingshot Group of Companies brought the well-known StarFlyer to ICON Park.

Top Tourist Destination

“We’ve had such great success with StarFlyer,” said Ritchie Armstrong, partner of Slingshot Group of Companies. “We can’t wait to bring the Orlando Slingshot and Orlando Gyro Drop Tower to the world-class destination of ICON Park. We love ICON Park and hope to continue working together to bring exciting attractions to Orlando.”

ICON Park’s partnership with Slingshot Group of Companies has brought great attractions to the area. It has also helped cement ICON Park as the iconic I-Drive destination, where people can ride, dine, drink and explore.

“ICON Park is already known for having the tallest observation wheel on the East Coast and the world’s tallest swing ride. We’re beyond thrilled to add two more jaw-dropping attractions to our destination,” said Chris Jaskiewicz, President and CEO of ICON Park. “ICON Park is the name to know as a complete destination of family-friendly adventure.”
