Welcome Skyhawk & Flying Eagles

In true Wonderland fashion, no season ever opens without something new to look forward to and 2016 is no different. This season literally takes off to pretty cool and exciting heights with two new rides for two different generations; the 360 degree-stomach-turning Skyhawk and the family-friendly Flying Eagles.

If you’re afraid of heights, you might want to look the other way, but chances are someone in your group will challenge you to ride Skyhawk. Yes, it’s a solo ride where you’re attempting multiple mid-air inversions. No, you can’t compare it to any other North American thrill ride because it’s the first of its kind.

As if families didn’t have enough to do and see, the park’s newest ride Flying Eagles aims to please the budding pilot in young and old alike. This adult-accompanied two-person ride incorporates just enough height and speed to create a turbulence-free flight experience.
