While Orlando's tallest roller coaster won't open until sometime in 2017, we already have an idea as to what it will feel like to ride the Skyscraper
A new video detailing the track design and a ride-through of the coaster was released today during the IAAPA Expo in Orlando. The video shows the coaster taking off from inside the Skyplex before making its way up the observation tower over 500 feet above International Drive.
“We’re extremely excited about creating a record-breaking, must-try attraction on International Drive,” said Joshua Wallack, Mango’s Tropical Café chief operating officer and developer of the new Skyplex Entertainment Complex on International Drive.
