Maelstrom is a stomach-churning, head-turning gyro swing that will have thrillseekers on the edge of their seats. You'll face outwards as you're raised into the sky, gaining massive height with every arc before you plunge towards the ground. But that's not all - you'll also rotate a full 360 degrees as you fly, sending you into the heart of the maelstrom.

Adrenalin junkies won't want to miss this one - in a unique twist, riders' legs swing freely, giving the sensation of freedom and flight in this jaw-dropping thrill ride. This white-knuckle experience is like nothing you've experienced before.
