Before Kings Island removed the ride from its website, it described the Sling Shot as “a two-person capsule that is attached to steel cables and propels riders into the air,” according to WCPO.

The ride was one of two paid attractions that required separate admission. The other ride, the Xtreme Skyflyer, is still available.

The Sling Shot is still available at Cedar Point, according to its website.
