MASHANTUCKET, CT –has announced Foxwoods Thrill Tower, one of the newest wonders at the resort, will reopen for the season on Thursday, April 12. The extreme thrill ride includes two rides: the Sky Drop and Sky Launch.
On the breathtaking Sky Drop, four riders at a time are lifted to the top of Thrill Tower before free-falling 120 feet to the bottom. This ride utilizes a state-of-the-art magnetic braking system to safely ensure a smooth, yet gripping free-fall experience, according to a release.
Sky Launch, which is equally adrenaline-inducing, propels two riders sitting back-to-back from the ground to the top of Thrill Tower and back again at jaw-dropping speeds. Sky Launch delivers a truly unmatched soaring sensation.
Adding even more exciting reasons to visit the resort, Foxwoods recently announced the opening of Foxwoods HighFlyer Zipline. The HighFlyer Zipline is a 33-story high, adrenaline-pumping adventure that propels guests from the top of the Fox Tower to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center.
Later this summer, Foxwoods is set to open its On Track Karting experience, a high-performance, European-style indoor karting center. The track, which will feature dramatic elevation changes and hairpin turns, is set to join Foxwoods’ impressive portfolio of adventure attractions.
