Dare Devil Dive

Dare Devil Dive

Take a Delirious Leap into Extreme Exhilaration!

Roller coasters are a spectacular way to spend the day, but there is another kind of thrill in the sky! Welcome to Dare Devil Dive, probably one of the most exhilarating rides you’ll ever dare to tackle. Get ready to experience the thrill of skydiving, hang-gliding and bungee jumping all rolled into one! First, you’ll have to get to the top of a 125-foot tower before taking a flying leap from the top with nothing but sky to catch your fall!

Bundle 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, until you’re so high you’ll only hear the wind as you dangle 12.5 stories in the air. There’s no turning back now—the only way to get down is to fall. In a split second, you are released and plummeting back towards the earth in a state of total free fall.

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.
