SlingShot is a reverse bungee ride built by Funtime at four Cedar Fair amusement parks: Cedar Point, Kings Island, Carowinds, and Canada's Wonderland. An additional fee separate from park admission is required to ride.
Slingshot at Cedar Fair park locations first opened at Kings Island in 2002. A similar installation opened at Cedar Point in 2014, along with the addition of Pipe Scream and Lake Erie Eagles, and a renovated Gemini Midway. It was built by Funtime. It opened at Cedar Point on July 2, 2014 after being open to employees for a few days.
The ride utilizes a fluctuating price structure, where the cost raises or lowers depending on the day of the week. Riders can also purchase an on-ride video recording for an additional fee.
SlingShot was located in the Oktoberfest area and the capsule was launched 275 feet (84 m) into the air going up to 100 miles per hour (160 km/h).
SlingShot is 360 feet (110 m) tall and is located on the Gemini Midway, next to the Gemini. Riders in a two-person capsule are attached to cables and a patented spring propulsion device incorporating up to 720 specially designed springs. The capsule is launched 360 feet (110 m) into the air at 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) and bounced up and down until it comes to rest at the launch point. The ride is the second highest at Cedar Point, about 70 feet (21 m) shorter than Top Thrill Dragster and 50 feet (15 m) higher than Millennium Force.
SlingShot is located in the Carousel Park area. The capsule is launched 300 feet (91 m) into the air at speeds of 60 miles per hour (97 km/h).
