Leave your fear of heights at the gate and grab a seat on SteelHawk, Worlds of Fun’s tallest attraction.  Soaring 301 feet in the air in a suspended seat with no floor below your feet, experience the exhilaration of being among the clouds. Feel the breeze in your face as SteelHawk rotates and spreads its wings at a 45-degree angle. Catch amazing views of the Kansas City skyline and surrounding areas while spinning at a rate of 8 rotations per minute.

At night, marvel in the lights of the city, and of the ride! SteelHawk illuminates the sky nightly with a dynamic rainbow of colors. 

Height Requirement: 52” minimum
