Take the plunge

The first of its kind anywhere in the world, this ride sits on the edge of a 200-foot cliff in Williams Canyon in Manitou Springs. Those brave enough to ride will be launched over 150 feet into the canyon at nearly 100 miles per hour! The G-forces on this ride might make you feel a little silly and the free-fall drop will have you laughing and screaming at the same time! 


What to expect

Once you are securely strapped in, you will free fall over 150 feet into breathtaking Williams Canyon. Your shrieks and laughs will echo through the canyon, but as you swing back and forth over the canyon floor, you’ll be planning to ride the Terror-dactyl again!
