Skyhawk consisted of a steel tubular structure and a supporting structure with arms for the 6 parachutes, It operated almost noiselessly and required very little ground space.The slender tower was free standing on its foundation.
Each one of the 6 double seat parachutes was connected with 2 steel ropes to a hoist link inside the tower.

Originally the ride had 3 seated gondolas and 3 standing gondolas, but the seated ones were removed in 1997 and replaced with standing ones to make it a completely standing ride.
