About Daytona Beach Sling Shot & Vomatron
This innovative Slingshot amusement device is by far one the most exciting vertical amusement rides available today. Slingshot passengers are propelled over 100 metres at speeds in the region of 160 kilometers per hour.
The slingshot machine does not utilize rubber ropes or bungee cords but is powered by a patented spring propulsion device incorporating up to 720 specially designed springs.
The Slingshot can be custom designed to cause minimal disruption to existing venues. This includes tower designs that consume a few square metres of land and use elevated gondola loading platforms where space is at a premium.
For the ultimate thrill ride Funtime have Slingshot designs able to propel the passenger capsule more than 150 metres high. Other designs are available that have a passenger capacity of around 240 passengers per hour.
