The Skyscraper at SKYPLEX™, the $500 million brainchild of Wallack Holdings LLC, the owners of Mango’s Tropical Café Orlando, includes a 524-foot vertical lift coming 24 feet under the ground and up to its ultimate height of 501 feet, developers David and Joshua Wallack announced. This will be the fourth world record planned for the Skyscraper “polercoaster” including the world’s tallest roller coaster, world’s tallest inversion, and the world’s steepest drop. The Skyscraper “polercoaster” is the anchor attraction at SKYPLEX™.
“The support from Central Florida and around the world is very humbling,” said Joshua Wallack, Managing Principal of Skyplex and COO of Mango’s. “SKYPLEX™ is the tallest roller coaster on Earth, very appropriate for the tourism capital of the world — Orlando, Florida — and belongs in the International Drive Entertainment District.”
The Wallacks also announced that SKYPLEX™’s surf park SkySurf contains the world’s largest man-made surfing wave pool, bringing six overall world records to the entertainment complex including the previously announced SkyFall, the world’s tallest drop ride, and four for The Skyscraper. SKYPLEX™ comprises approximately 1.5 million square feet located on 14 prime acres in the Orlando attraction’s corridor. It is the area’s largest indoor theme park and includes SkyFly free fall zip line, simulators, and a host of rides and games, as well as additional opportunities for attractions, interactive venues, upscale restaurants, bars, and retail. Skyplex features a 2400 space parking garage and valet option.
