You step up to the platform and peek over the edge and your heart starts to race. Your palms are sweating, your legs are heavy. You take a deep breath, you step up, and you take flight. You scream, you gasp, you’re still falling. Suddenly you find that your feet are on the ground, and all you want is another chance to fly.

Head Rush Technologies announces their newest product for the adventure and amusement industries - FlightLine.

Flightline is a true free fall thrill ride device designed for falls from 18 to 27.5m.

Western Sydney is poised to gain another arrow in it's 'Adventure Quiver' if a proposed Aerial Adventure Park by the Go Bananas Family Entertainment Centre (an adjunct to the  St Mary's Rugby League Club) gets the green light.

The concept (developed by TouchCloud and Go Banans) is dramatic, fun, challenging and is designed to be universal in its appeal and accessibility.  The aerial adventure structure is destined to become an icon for wholesome outdoor fun and entertainment in Western Sydney - and go some way to answering the call of parents when they yell to their children (and reflect on their own needs) "get off the screen - go outside, play, explore, challenge yourselves .. get some sunshine".

Expected to be operational by Easter 2015.
