ALTOONA, Iowa – Adventureland opened its newest ride, The Storm Chaser, this weekend.

The 260 feet tall ride spins around at 35mph all the way to the top.

The ride was made in Holland and shipped here to central Iowa.

Adventureland officials described the ride as unique.

“Well this is the tallest ride by far we’ve ever put in Adventureland,” said the park’s Molly Vincent “It is quite an experience that I don’t think you’ll get anywhere else around here.”

The Storm Chaser replaced the now decommissioned Silly Silo.
