A classic ride at this year’s Queen City Ex is one that people need to pay extra for.
The Sling Shot can be found just outside the Queensbury Centre, and is a yearly tradition for some at the Ex.
Site Manager for Thrill Masters Austin Knight said it is a fairly popular ride.
“There are always those thrill seekers out there who are always up for crazy stuff. It’s all about how high you go and how fast you go, 235 feet, 160 kilometres an hour.”
Knight said although the ride is thrilling, safety is their number one concern.
“Those cables that are on there are actually airplane cables steel wire and those can hold up to four times the load that the ride can actually give out. There are never many major issues. We are one of the safest rides on the Midway.”
The sling shot, along with all of the other rides at the Queen City Ex, are open until Sunday night.
