They are: the Spinning Coaster, the tallest and longest full-circuit, free-spinning coaster in the world, and the Launched Euro-Fighter, set to feature the world’s steepest roller coaster drop.

The third attraction is a ropes course – the world’s tallest and largest SkyTrail Explorer. The SkyTrail features a custom experience with two sections aimed at adventurers of all ages and also offers the world’s tallest ropes course QUICKjump.

“It’s humbling to think that Ride Entertainment has 210 projects under its belt. With a number of multi-million dollar projects still to be announced later this year, Ride Entertainment is poised to have 2018 be its highest grossing year to date,” commented Ed Hiller, CEO of Ride Entertainment.

“Ride has so much to celebrate, but the team is most thankful for the thrill-seekers that keep this industry thriving.”
