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 massively tall tower at the center of Texas Sky Screamer are about to liftoff. Now it wouldn’t be Texas if we didn’t go big. How does 400 feet sound?
Don’t be fooled by the colorful, 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 way 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 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 35 miles per hour.
You’re sitting in a swing chair, dangling a whopping 40 stories up, getting hurled around in a 124-foot wide circle. 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, check out the view of Arlington, that tiny little town you are towering above. On Texas SkyScreamer, you’re flying on top of the world!
