Skyline Attractions Announces Strike-U-Up Details

Previously only teased as a new concept for the amusement industry, Skyline Attractions has provided full details on their first creation.  The first in what is hoped to become a full catalog of rides and attractions, Strike-U-Up is an interactive ride and game combination.

The attraction allows teams of two to face off against one another, with one team member riding up the tower and the other hitting a central target.  The players aiming for the target will boost their teammate up the tower as they hit their mark, making the seats bounce their way to the top.  When one seat reaches the top the winner is decided and both seats float back down to the ground.

Skyline Attractions is offering the Strike-U-Up units in both park and portable versions, and each unit can be pared with others - up to four in total (creating eight seats, shown above).

The attraction is part of the company's new GamesURide product line, with more creations already in the pipeline.  Skyline Attractions plans to show off the first Strike-U-Up at this month's annual IAAPA convention.  You can read more about Strike-U-Up on Skyline's webpage, and see photos of the first unit being created here.
