Diamond Wireless FMX Show
The most Extreme athletes in sports, the freestyle motocross riders will be flying through the air! These top action sports athletes will be flying 75' through the air reaching heights of 35' and doing mind blowing tricks such as Hart Attacks, cliff hangers and the crowd favorite back flips. If you have never seen this sport live before, get a front row seat because it is spectacular!
Brand new, A.R.M Vertigo towers over the midway at 100 feet in height and seats twenty-four passengers.
Once the ride begins, the entire center twists in a circular motion. Riders enjoy a swinging sensation as the entire center track lifts up slowly until reaching the top of the ride. Once the swing ride reaches the top it begins to slowly swing in a descent.
