Last week, Unicorp announced yet another world's-tallest attraction springing up along International Drive. StarFlyer, a chair swing ride that stands 420 feet tall, is coming to the I-Drive 360 Complex in 2016. At just 5 feet shorter than the Orlando Eye, the attraction joins fellow future-record-breaker Skyscraper on the ever-growing I-Drive skyline.

There's already a chair swing ride on International Drive at Magic Midway, but it's only 230 feet tall. The new StarFlyer will boast amazing views and, as of this posting, a $10 per ride price tag.

Wanna know what that $10 will get you? Take a virtual ride on the current world's tallest chair swing at Six Flags New England:
