Today we got word that the Skyscraper roller coaster at Skyplex has received a makeover of sorts and has had the ending completely redone to accommodate the massive 10,000 square-foot Perkins restaurant that will anchor the new area called SkyPlaza, that will feature other retail venues.

“From day one, we have been committed to creating a roller coaster experience for Orlando unlike any in the world,” said Bill Kitchen, Founder of Orlando-based US Thrill Rides and creator of the Polercoaster. “What you see today (with this animation release) is not only the world’s tallest roller coaster, but the world’s most exciting roller coaster experience ever conceived!”

The $300 million SKYPLEX comprises approximately 1,500,000 square feet located on 14 prime acres in the Orlando attraction’s corridor. SKYPLEX will feature the area’s largest indoor theme park complete with upscale arcading, simulators, bars, and a host of rides and games, as well as additional opportunities for attractions, interactive venues, restaurants and retail.

Skyscraper sent us the new video featuring the new animation and it is amazing!  This project continues to impress me everyday and 2017 cannot get here soon enough!

A new animation is in the works to show off the newly announced SkyFall drop ride, developed by Intamin Worldwide, which will be a free-fall drop tower that will lie flush against the tower of The Skyscraper.

Mango’s Tropical Café Orlando and its adjacent parking garage will open in summer 2015 across from SKYPLEX on International Drive as well.  This is turning out to be an exciting time for International Drive here in Orlando!
