Thrill Rides - The GauntletBack To Home
The challenge is issued the moment you gaze up to Gauntlet as you make your way toward the park’s entrance. It’s a huge, bright yellow monument to mental mayhem looping into the sky. Will you or won’t you? It takes nerves of steel to endure this 110-foot drop into a whirling dervish of five inverted loops and mind-blowing bends. You’ll feel strong side-to-side, up-and-down, and front-to-back forces traveling 2,200 feet of steel coaster insanity all while suspended under the coaster’s tracks at speeds up to 50 mph. Feet dangling, adrenaline pumping, hearts thumping…this is the very definition of a thrill ride.
We’re celebrating Gauntlet’s 11th year anniversary at Magic Springs during the 2014 season. The name, “Gauntlet,” was chosen by Becky Branch of Jacksonville who participated in a widespread radio event to name the new attraction at the end of 2003.
This attraction is available to riders at a height of at least 52”.
