Skyplex adds new attraction to plans

Vegas-style thrill ride SkyJump announced as 6th attraction


ORLANDO, Fla. – A sixth major attraction has joined the lineup at the entertainment zone that will be built around the world's tallest roller coaster. 

The new attraction is called SkyJump and is based on a Las Vegas thrill ride. It involves jumping off the edge and free falling hundreds of feet while attached to a tether. 

Skyplex is planned for the corner of International Drive and Sand Lake Road. 

Other attractions include a 500-foot -tall roller coaster, a 450-foot Skyfall drop ride and a 600-foot SkyFly Zip Line. 

Developers said they plan to break ground on Skyplex later this year. It is expected to open in 2019.
