Sky Flyer

Xtreme Skyflyer

The Xtreme Skyflyer soared onto the Kings Dominion midways in 1996. Located in the Grove section of the park, riders will be pulled up an astonishing 155 foot tower where they are left dangling in mid air. In order to get back down, guests only option is to pull a rip-cord, releasing them (and up to two other brave souls). Xtreme Skyflyer will send you plummeting at speeds up to 70 mph.

Beginning the terrifying climb up the massive tower – you might find yourself staring straight down at the descending ground in front of you. No need to have second thoughts now – because what’s done is done! You’re going up and there’s nothing you can do about it! Staring out into the midways of Kings Dominion, other park guests seem to be the size of ants scurrying on the ground. All of a sudden, a ride-op belts out “Flight Zone Delta 3, 2, 1 fly!” – that is your cue. Adrenalin pumping at an all time high, you can feel the suspense building as you reach for the rip-cord. Immediately after yanking the cord, you are sent plunging straight towards the giant target painted on the pavement below. Soaring past the ground (feeling as if you will smack right into it) you begin to level out and fly back up to the sky. At this moment, you come to a realization – you are still alive! Flying over the Kings Dominion bustling midway, a grin stretches from ear to ear when you realize that you have done it! You conquered one of Kings Dominion’s most petrifying rides – The Xtreme Skyflyer!
