Have a seat, but don’t get too used to having your feet on the ground. The chairs hanging in a peaceful circle around the stunning 242 foot-tall tower at the center of Sky Screamer are about to liftoff. Don’t be fooled by the pretty star-shaped gondola that is doing all the heavy lifting. This gondola is merciless, and you’re about to fly boldly through the air with the trees beneath your feet!
You’re gently picked up and start to slowly swirl and revolve around the center. Up you go, cranked into the sky as the thin cables holding up your seat begin to spin. You’ll start to spin faster as you lift higher, so by the time you get to the top, you will be careening around the center base at 40 miles per hour.
You’re sitting in a swing chair, dangling loose 24 stories up, getting hurled around in a 98-foot circle at nearly highway speeds—talk about airtime. All you’re going to feel is air, with your feet dangling in the sky and hair blowing in the wind. The world far below you is making more revolutions per second than you can count.
While you’re up there, wave at Big Wheel, the enormous classic Ferris wheel that is about 100 feet below you. That’s how high up you are. On SkyScreamer, it’s like you’re flying on top of the world now.
