In March 2012 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will take over Nickelodeon Universe in Bloomington, MN. Gerstlauer Amusement Rides' newest Sky Fly goes by the name 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shell Shock' and is a first of its kind ride in the U.S. The ride will take passengers on a thrilling, interactive flight adventure.
Once the 12 comfortable, turtle shell-themed single-rider gondolas are carried aloft, there is no stopping. The gondola brakes are released and thanks to control wings every rider is able to roll over. Everyone decides whether the ride turns into a hair-raising flight-adventure or ends up to be 'just' a scenic flight. ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shell Shock’ is for everyone! Since the boom is tilted, the riders go up 72 ft (22 m) and come down each revolution. Comfortable shoulder restraints with redundant, hydraulic cylinders keep new members of the turtle gang in their seats safely.
