The Sky Jump is a highly unusual attraction, which offers the guests an unforgettable sky-diving experience. The development of this unique attraction was only possible using Intamin's patented magnetic braking system.
The Sky Jump challenges thrill seekers’ knowledge of Giant Drops. It is not a basic tower, where vehicles are purely released at the top and fall to the magnetic brakes. Here, the riders experience the same lifting of the vehicle up the tower structure, but once at the top, riders are tilted 95 degrees, so that they are facing ground, exactly in the same position as skydivers jumping out of a plane. Riders remain in this position for a few seconds, variably controlled by the operator, and then accelerates downward in a true free fall, reaching speeds of 95 km/h. The vehicle is brought back to its seated position when approaching the braking section. The use of magnetic brakes ensures a safe and smooth deceleration to reach the ground.
