At 430 feet, Orlando Free Fall will be the world’s tallest free-standing drop tower when it opens. The attraction will offer views of International Drive as well as thrills.
After reaching the top, the ride vehicle will tilt 30 degrees toward the ground before dropping nearly 400 feet at speeds of up to 75 mph.
Orlando Free Fall will open alongside the Orlando Slingshot, which, at 300 feet, will be the world’s tallest slingshot. The attraction will have two towers that will launch riders about 450 feet into the sky from an “exploding volcano.”
Both attractions will be owned and operated by the Slingshot Group of Companies, which also plans to open a slingshot attraction at Margaritaville Resort Orlando next month.
ICON Park is home to a number of attractions, including the 400-foot-tall observation wheel known as The Wheel, Madame Tussauds Orlando, Sea Life Orlando Aquarium and the Orlando StarFlyer. The complex also has a variety of restaurants including Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Orlando and Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips.
