FlightLine Free Fall Device

Stand at the edge with 80 ft of air beneath you & take flight for an adventure experience unlike any other.

A Thrilling Free Fall

Take adventure to new heights with the FlightLine Free Fall. This revolutionary free fall device offers extreme thrills and will create an unforgettable experience. Imagine standing on a platform 24.5 m (80 ft) above the ground, stepping off into thin air, and free falling for up to 11 m (36 ft) – it’s an intense adrenaline rush! What makes FlightLine different from other adventure experiences?

Extended Free Fall

Participants get plenty of air time with FlightLine – up to 11m (36 ft) of free fall! FlightLine is great as a standalone element or to add extra “wow” factor to an existing adventure experience.

High Throughput

The FlightLine retracts quickly and allows for high guest throughput. The throughput is higher than alternatives (e.g. bungee jumps) and offers the same thrilling free fall.

Staged Magnetic Braking

Head Rush’s patented magnetic eddy current braking technology is extremely reliable and creates an amazingly soft catch. The dual braking system in FlightLine engages in two stages so the catch is smooth and gentle.

Multiple Mounting Configurations

An optional “jump-over” configuration allows participants to jump from a platform with the device mounted beneath them. This increases the free fall distance and ups the thrill factor. Two ripcord lengths allow additional customization of the FlightLine Free Fall experience.

Minimal Maintenance

Head Rush’s patented magnetic eddy current braking technology is extremely reliable and provides a low cost of ownership. There are no contacting parts in the braking system, and there is less wear because the braking does not involve any friction.

Modular & Compact

Add extreme thrills in an amazingly small footprint. FlightLine requires a platform or tower at least 18.5m (60 ft) tall, but then the modular device is easy to install and operate.

"FlightLine has proven itself to provide customers with a complete adventure experience. Riders experience fear, uncertainty, exhilaration and personal satisfaction. Climbing to such an unfamiliar height, the exposure they face, the personal choice they make to jump, and then the thrill of the ride – FlightLine offers a full adventure experience!" – Kevin French, Challenges Unlimited
