US Thrillrides introduces the SkySpire®: Stunningly beautiful, and will cost less than a Ferris Wheel of the equivalent height.
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – With the COVID-19 vaccines beginning to be distributed across the world, US Thrill rides prepares for the upcoming surge in social demand by offering new concepts and ideas for the amusement industry. Founder and Chairman of US Thrill Rides, Bill Kitchen, has been working on several new concepts for the SkySpire, a next-generation, iconic attraction with beautiful panoramic views.
Sky Spire’s architecturally stunning structure is an incredible draw for tourists. Not only is it unique, but also provides ample screen space on the top of the tower for media, advertising and sponsorship opportunities. The track wraps around 3 times allowing passengers to enjoy breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views in climate-controlled gondolas, rotating around the tower as they ascend to the top. The roof of the SkySpire will be covered in solar panels making this iconic structure ecofriendly. The top of the tower can also be used as a fireworks launch pad.
The SkySpire gives an observation experience that is a unique and fresh alternative to the common, traditional Ferris Wheel. It is 250 feet tall and has a capacity of 600 to 1,200 people per hour. Because the SkySpire leverages a vertical space, it does not require the same valuable ground space as Ferris Wheel alternatives. This allows the SkySpire to be incorporated in more dense areas.
The SkySpire incorporates a patent-pending 360-degree tower lift system. Its owners will have an exclusive, iconic landmark. US Thrillrides believes the future is bright for the post-pandemic attraction economy and the sky is the limit for the next generation of experiences like SkySpire!
