Dare Devil Dive’s mission begins as you’re pulled straight up to the sky on a special vertical chain lift, then slowly roll to the top of the tower nearly 100-feet in the air. After an agonizing pause at the crest of the summit, you plummet downward at an angle that is beyond straight down — it actually angles inward at a blistering 52 mph. it is the country’s first PAUSE element before the beyond vertical drop.
Then you careen through a thrilling combination of diving loops while executing three inversions before you catch air on a zero gravity hill and swoop across the dreaded Immelman vertical U turn stretched high above the ground. The crescendo builds as the car dives toward the ground and up into a Heartline roll before being slowed by the magnetic brakes.
Dare Devil Dive will be only the third Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter in America. The other two Euro-Fighters are SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge at the Mall of America (Bloomington, MN) and the popular Mystery Mine at Dollywood (Pigeon Forge, TN) only 4 hours from Atlanta. And overseas SAW – The Ride, and it’s 100 degree drop, seemed to be a hit over in the UK when it opened in Thorpe Park last year. There aren’t a lot of details yet beyond a few stats and marketing language above, but hopefully, Dare Devil Dive delivers the goods as well.
