World's Tallest Swing Ride - Orlando StarFlyer - VIDEO!

Postby robbalvey » Fri Apr 27, 2018 11:27 am

Today we went out to shoot some video on the new "World's Tallest StarFlyer" in Orlando while the ride is in its testing phase. The video really speaks for itself! Comment below if you would ride or why you wouldn't ride!

As much as the New England Sky Screamer terrified me, if presented the opportunity to ride this thing, there is no way I would back down. It looks ridiculous in the best way possible!

I would be absolutely terrified, but would ABSOLUTELY ride.

still haven't made it up to SFoT for the current tallest (for another month or so), but will remedy that in June.

By then Texas Skyscreamer will be the 2nd tallest. . but will have to do until we make it back to Orlando so I can ride this guy!


is it associated with Orlando Eye? (I'm guessing they will be selling a package pass with Eye / Starflyer ?)

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

These things scare the s*** out of me, like many others, and this one looks to be no exception. However, I'd have to try if I was in the area.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Sure, why not? If something goes wrong at 100 feet or 450 feet the end result will be the same.

Looks great, wish it was up and running when we were there in December since we were literally staying 2 minutes away.

NESS is a definite sweaty-palms ride, but I'd do this one for sure. It should look awesome at night.

It's a beautiful and graceful looking ride, but these things scare the living shit out of me. Tried two of them that were both under 200' and almost had a panic attack on both of them.

No thanks.
