Gunslinger

The New Sheriff in Town Lifts You Off the Ground!

Saddle up and head down to Boomtown, there’s new adventure to be had! Follow the giant pistols for a swashbuckling sail though the sky, on a classic wave swinger that would make any gunslingin’ cowboy grin.

A circle of swing chairs sit peacefully on the ground, but not for long. Choose a good one and get ready to kiss the ground goodbye. You’re gently picked up and start to slowly swirl around the center.

Soon you’ll be flying through the air, on this seated, swinging, twisting and tilting carousel that sends you sailing through the clouds, high up over the cows and whatever else might be grazing down below.

Spinning round in a perfect formation, the seats keep rising up higher into a giant flying circle in the sky, like a great big Ferris wheel turned on its side. You’ll experience sheer exhilaration while you cruise through the wild blue yonder.

Feel the wind in your hair while you swing like a yo-yo, as the Gunslinger lifts you to the limit. Feet dangling in the air, we see that grin starting to poke through. Turns out those tough pistol-slinging cowboys like to have fun too.

What Our Guests Say

  • "Our group ranged from 8 to 68 years old, and we enjoyed it!"
    - Melissa R. From Dallas
  • - Abby T From Texas
  • "My daughter loves this ride. She really seems to like that we can ride it together, but not be sitting side by side. (It's a little independent, while still having the security of Dad being close by)."
    - Chris P. From Cleburne, Tx
  • "You feel like you're flying because you're not put on a track. You spin wherever the wind feels like."
    - Daniel M From Burleson, Tx
  • "On the gunslinger you get to sit down, relax and feel the wind blowing on you."
    - Heather D. Decatur Tx
