This was an amazing ride! We had to do it, although Janine had to take a big step given her fear of heights!
So check out these stats – all world records by the way:
- Largest unsupported free span in the world – 1.88 miles.
- Highest lift in the world of its kind – 1,361 feet.
- It is also the longest continuous lift in the world – total distance traveled is 2.73 miles.
And in case that wasn’t enough excitement, they even put a glass floor in a few of the cars!
Here are some more interesting facts. The total ride lasts 11 minutes. There are 28 cars, each can carry up to 28 passengers, that means the thing can move 4,100 passengers per hour.
