Skyplex Orlando Announces New Surf Park
Skyplex Orlando keeps expanding on their plan for the Skyscraper complex which already boasts a 700 ft tall Skyscraper, the 570 ft tall roller coaster, the WORLD’S tallest roller coaster by well over 100 ft, a new 600 ft long powered reversed zip-line and the 450 ft tall Skyfall drop tower. If that wasn’t enough to satisfy your thrill seeking pleasure pallet, Skyplex will now also feature a surf park.
Skyscraper At Skyplex Has Big Plans For Orlando Venue
The new surf park will be adjacent to the on-site 350 room hotel, both sitting on top of the 10-story parking structure. The large main surf pool will have surfers facing towards the Skyscraper tower. Two small surf pools will have surfers facing east with the tower to their right. Bleachers overlook the main pool which is designed to host professional competitions. Two pool bars, a café and a surf shop finish out the surf park. The hotel pool and meeting space will be on the same deck. Palm trees and other tropical foliage finish out the Miami Beach style pool deck.
The Skyscraper at Skyplex now has an opening goal of Spring 2018. Along with the attractions already mentioned it will also host the world’s largest Perkins, an updated Burger King, retail and a nightclub/observation deck 55 stories up. Skyplex recently received FAA approval for the tower and is now going through zoning changes with the county.
