Ripcord

Three Breathtaking Experiences in One Ride

Ever wonder what it’s like to fly like a bird – at extreme speeds? Ripcord gives you the experiences of hang gliding, skydiving and swinging – all in the same ride.  After you get strapped into the harness – face down, mind you – a lift cable elevates you to a peak of 150 feet above the ground. At the top, the rider operator will instructor you to pull the cord. Because you pull the ripcord yourself, you’re in control, right? Um, no. Not, really. The second you rip the cord, gravity kicks in and you free fall at speeds up to 65 miles per hour down, down, down toward the earth, skimming it by mere feet. You then swing back and forth until it’s all over. Whew! This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll never forget. Ripcord is not included with park admission; a separate fee is required to experience this heart-thumping attraction.

Pricing: 3 flyers is $15 each, 2 flyers is $20 each and 1 flyer is $15. 

Height Requirement: 48” minimum

Rider Safety Information

  • This is a high-thrill Skycoaster attraction made to simulate flight. Riders are hoisted into the air. They control their own ride experience by pulling the ripcord, initiating their tethered freefall descent and flight. The sensation of flight as riders fall is similar to skydiving and hang gliding, with riders reaching speeds.
  • Maximum weight is 850 lb. per flight.
  • Riders wear a full body harness that supports the rider in a prone position. The harness is connected to flight support cables.
  • Riders must have a minimum of one functioning leg and by reason of the restraint system inherent in the flight suit, it is necessary that riders possess two arms sufficient for proper functioning of the flight suit to be maintained. Lower extremities must be sufficient enough length to be contained and restrained by a leg strap. Proper functioning of the flight suit must be maintained for riders without appropriate center of gravity. 
  • Guests with a cervical collar, neck brace, or broken collar bone are not permitted to ride. Casts are not permitted on this ride.
  • Alternate access is available at the ride exit. Riders must be able to walk independently or be assisted by a member of their party.
  • Note: This is an extra charge attraction.
