Connecticut Casino Looks to Thrill With Free-Fall + Zip Line Rides
Not only can you toss your money on the gaming tables, but soon, you can toss your cookies on some heart-stopping rides at a Connecticut Casino.
The 25th Anniversary celebration for the Foxwoods Resort Casino is growing to new heights. Not only does 350 Trolley Line Boulevard in Mashantucket, Connecticut offer casino action, shopping, eating, drinking, amazing concerts and shows, as well as all sorts of other activities, but now, two rides that will take your breathe away.
A press release from Foxwoods just made this announcement:
Thrill Tower at Foxwoods is yet another exciting reveal as Foxwoods celebrates its 25th Anniversary, and comes on the heels of the resort announcing the opening of Foxwoods HighFlyer Zipline. The HighFlyer Zipline is a 33-story high, adrenaline-pumping adventure that launches guests from the top of the Fox Tower to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center at a top speed of 60 miles per hour.
Later this summer, Thrill Tower at Foxwoods will be open from 10:00 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Sunday.
Thrill Tower is being called an extreme thrill ride that will take you to new heights with the Sky Drop and Sky Launch.
I'll be honest, I have a fear of heights, so I'll stand on the ground and cheer you on as you take in the experience.
And what an experience it promises to be. The description says that the Sky Drop will lift four people at a time to the top of Thrill Tower before letting them free-fall 120 feet to the bottom. The other attraction, Sky Launch, thrusts two riders sitting back-to-back from the ground to the top of Thrill Tower and back again at jaw-dropping speed.
I'm thinking that even without going on Thrill Tower, my jaw will still be dropping watching you get the "thrill of a lifetime!"
