Blaze like a shooting star down to earth in this ride that’ll give your stomach the ultimate drop! Shooting Star is the epitome of surprises as you never know exactly when you will free fall from the top once you’ve reached the top. Prepare for high thrills and lots of laughs as you plummet to the earth and try not to wet your britches!

Hop in your seat and pull the shoulder bar down over you. You’re going to want that there when you drop unexpectedly back down to earth. Feel the wind between your toes as your feet and legs dangle over the side of your seat. Up, up, up you go to the sky! Hang out at the top of the tower in suspense while you wait to fall at any given second. Just when you’re getting used to the peacefulness of being up above the park and taking in the quietness of your surroundings, you’re dropped down to the earth below, just like a shooting star!

You’ll get to feel the thrill of falling a few times as you go back up and down again after the first descent down. While you still won’t be an astronaut after riding the Shooting Star, it’s a ride worth doing and a great choice for children.
