The Miami Skylift is Prepping to Launch from DTown

The Balloon will function as an observatory deck taking riders several hundred feet up in the sky. Nice view I would imagine. It’s hard to have thought the Bayfront Park fountain would serve as a launching pad for such a ride. I think it’s fresh. Here are some reader submitted images (thanks to Alex G. and John Paul for submitting!):

    I think that the balloon is a great idea but I thought the fountain was beautiful and I think that the balloon makes it look too much like a carnival, and a little less respectable than I think it should be. I think it also takes away from a certain peacefulness that the park had.

  2. This highlights the fact that we lack a traditional observatory deck in the Core. If we had one, something like this would not likely happen. But, all in all, I think it’s a good idea too.

    This sounds great, is it open to the public, and available to take children?
