The Catapult, manufactured in Europe, utilizes a specially designed spring machine that operates by applying over forty (40) tons of force to extension springs. This incredible propulsion energy is then transferred to the rider capsule prior to launch. When launched, riders will experience forces similar to astronauts as they are rocketed from ground level to well over 200 feet in the air. At the highest point, riders will become weightless momentarily as they freely rotate forward and backward before they are pulled back to Earth. After several oscillations up and down, the capsule is lowered to the boarding area to unload and load another group of riders.
