Gröna Lund adds Ikaros Sky Jump

Gröna Lund in Stockholm has opened the Ikaros, the world’s second Sky Jump, which stands 95 meters tall and tilts riders more than 90 degrees before plummeting to the ground at 90 kph.

“I have pretty much experienced all that there is in an amusement park. So I can honestly say that this is one of the most terrifying drop towers in the world, but also one of the most exhilarating. The feeling of adrenalin pumping through your system as you fall towards the ground, is hard to beat. I would really recommend everyone who has the courage, to try Ikaros,” said Johan Tidstrand, owner of Parks and Resorts Scandinavia.

A part from having the most roller coasters per square meter in the world, Gröna Lund is also the home to one of the tallest StarFlyers in the world (Eclipse) and the tallest Free Fall Tilt in Europe. Is the 31st ride at the 134 year old waterfront park in the middle of Stockholm.
