The Blade - Wide

Cutting Edge Fun

Dare you brave the Blade? Take one massive shard of rusting metal and start it swinging through the Forbidden Forest. Then jump aboard for a seriously hair-raising, stomach-floating, zero-gravity near-vertical experience that gets ever more intense until you’re hovering off your seat, high in the sky. Try the very back for extra thrills – few are bold enough to sit there twice!

The Blade - Close-up

Swing Into Action!

This huge shard of rusty metal was discarded during the Nemesis excavation.

It was found by one of the workers of the Phalanx, and crafted into a swinging blade that cuts through the Forbidden Valley.

As it swings through the air, back and forth, The Blade reaches a zero gravity moment. Float free from your seat and leave your stomach floating somewhere above you! As it flies back and forth, this pendulum swing reaches near-vertical angles.

Dare you sit right at the back of this swinging ship ride?!
