Hammerhead Shark

The Ocean has a New King of Swing.

Reaching a dramatic 50 feet in the air, two of the sea’s most fearsome predators make way for an over-the-top swinging tower over you. It’s the hammerhead shark—except these are more than ten times the size of the ones you’ll find on your next trip swimming across the Pacific Ocean. They’re standing on their heads with their tails extended high in the air. But you know a shark always has to keep moving, so grab onto this big fish and hang on for an incredible ride! You and 23 other adventurers will take a seat on these sharks’ most famous feature—their broad hammerheads. Then each giant sea creature swings around like a pendulum, swinging you with it until you’re completely upside down.

Where else in the world can you ride the head of a giant 40-foot long shark as it whips you around, completely upside down, in loop after mind-blowing loop? This was the very first ride of its kind ever built, and you will be tail-slapped by its ingenious and heart-thumping concept.

The shark pendulum arms swing up… a little bit higher… then even higher… until you’re completely vertical! Wave to the people on the other passing shark before the momentum kicks in and you go full loop, tumbling in reverse back down the other side. This cold-blooded fish is just getting warmed up. You’re in for seven full 360-degree loops in 90 seconds—meaning before you can even count to ten, you’ll be looping again.

You’ll feel like the king of the ocean riding one of these enormous fish.
