If you are looking for a unique ride that is definitely well worth the money you pay, then the Catapult is the ride for you. Imagine being able to climb into a large rock and being launched from a huge sling shot. This is basically the idea behind the ride.
You and another rider climb into what is known as the Capsule, a ball that is attached to two steel ropes. The ride operators lock you into the the ball and prepare you to launch. When the ride is ready, your ball is released from the latch holding you to the ground and you are shot up well over 200 feet. Sounds like fun? You bet it is!
This ride is fast, exciting, and well worth it. You get to experience forces similar to what astronauts feel when they are launched into outer space. When you reach the maximum height of the ride, you feel weightless for a quick second before you are pulled back down to earth. The ride ends with some bounces and then you are free to kiss the ground.
