Six Flags Over Texas Building World’s Tallest Swing Ride for
August 30, 2012
Six Flags Over Texas, The Thrill Capital of Texas, today unveiled plans that will solidify its reputation as the state’s premier location for thrilling, record-breaking family fun. The Texas SkyScreamer will make its debut in 2013 and make history as the world’s tallest swing ride.
The Texas SkyScreamer will tower an amazing 400 feet above the ground and take its place as the park’s newest icon. Twenty-four guests will board the ride and sit two across in open-air swings as they climb to the top of the tower while spinning round and round. At full swing, guests will soar in a 124-foot circle at speeds of 35 mph with the rest of earth below. By day, riders will enjoy a breathtaking bird’s eye view that will span across North Texas.
“We take great pride in offering the best, the biggest and the most innovative attractions for our guests,” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor park president. “This ride experience will be unlike any other tower swing ride ever built. If you want to Go Big, then ride the Texas SkyScreamer next spring.”
