Construction on the new, thrilling volcano attraction has begun
Online PR News – 08-July-2021 – KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Sunset Walk at Margaritaville Resort Orlando is erupting to astonishing heights with the addition of a thrilling new attraction opening fall 2021.
The Slingshot Group of Companies™ is bringing the Sunset Walk Slingshot™ to the entertainment complex’s great line up of restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The attraction’s towers will stand at 240 feet tall and launch two riders up to 400 feet in the air, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph in under two seconds.
Guests will experience a tropical vibe as they wander through tiki huts surrounding the towering, volcano-inspired attraction. Once inside their gondola, they will lower deep into the volcano and begin to feel the rumble of an eruption about to occur. Smoke will begin to billow as the gondola shoots the guests into the sky, reaching incredible heights and speeds in seconds.
“The Slingshot Group of Companies™ is ready to bring even more thrills to such an up-and-coming area. We’re so excited to be a part of Sunset Walk’s growth,” said Ritchie Armstrong, owner. “The attraction’s foundation has been poured and the towers are already going vertical. In a few short months, guests will be able to experience what it feels like to be launched out of a volcano!”
Just a quick drive down I-4, The Slingshot Group of Companies™ is also opening two world-record setting attractions at ICON Park in Orlando. The Orlando Slingshot™ will stand at 300 feet, while the Orlando Free Fall™ will stand at 430 feet, making them two of the tallest attractions in the world. They’re scheduled to open December 2021.
“We’re honored to be creating so many thrilling attractions in Central Florida,” said Armstrong. “The Slingshot Group of Companies™ has been bringing thrills to guests for over 20 years and we’re confident they’ll love these new additions.”
