Old Town Slingshot and Vomatron

An amusement park of sorts, Old Town Slingshot and Vomatron has some thrilling rides to experience. The Slingshot is exactly what it sounds like. You're situated in a harness and strapped in quite thoroughly before you're tilted back. Hearing the thrumming of the Springs Machine around you, it vaults you vertically at over 100 miles an hour to heights of up to 150 meters. The Vomatron on the other hand is a different kind of thrill. What looks like a propeller with little seating cabs on each end, riders are then rotated at a speed of up to 70 miles an hour. It then slows down just to go in reverse. The Vomatron was originally made for astronauts by N.A.S.A. because they had to go through different tests to make sure they could handle going up in space. While those two rides are meant for the older kids, there's some fun for little kids too. Kids are harnessed with bungee cords and can jump as high as 15 feet and are encouraged to try flips if they want to. Old Town is definitely not for the faint of heart, but it sure is a fun way to spend an afternoon if you like exciting rides.
