Unique ride created way up high
The Crown Regency Hotel and Towers in Cebu, the Philippines, recently launched Sky Experience Adventure. Located on the 38th level of the hotel building, the attraction comprises the first Edge Coaster from Interactive Rides of Utah, USA.
Featuring four two-seater vehicles that move 389ft around the edge of the hotel, passengers control the tilt as they move sideways up to 65 degrees. When this occurs they are looking straight down over 430ft at the ground below! The tilt is controlled with two levers mounted on top of the lap bar restraint.
The Sky Experience Adventure also includes the Skywalk, a ledge outside the 37th mezzanine level of the hotel and Sky Observatory viewing deck, restaurant and bar. In 2011 a second attraction from Interactive Rides, an Inverted Centrifuge, will be installed at the topmost part of the building, similar to Insanity, on top of the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas.
Interactive Rides meanwhile has several other Edge Coaster designs available for client perusal.
See below for a video of the ride in action.
