Skycoaster
At 173 ft. tall, it was Opryland's tallest attraction. Each of the two "launch towers" could hold 3 people per ride. This had a
unique feature unshared by the rest of the rides, it was owned by an outside company and charged it's own admission. If
I'm not mistaken, it cost $25 per rider. It was also the only ride that offered video from your ride instead of just a picture.
Due to contract disputes, this was the last ride to be taken down at Opryland.
