SkyScreamer

The ultimate definition of airtime

Have a seat, but don’t get too used to having your feet on the ground. The 32 chairs hanging in a peaceful circle around the massively tall 23-story tower at the center of SkyScreamer are about to liftoff. 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 beneath your feet!

You’re gently picked up and start to slowly swirl and revolve around the center. Up you go, cranked 236 feet in the sky as the seemingly skinny chains 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 43 miles per hour.

You’re sitting in a swing chair, 23 stories up, getting hurled around in a 98-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.

The view from the top is tremendous. You’ll see not only the whole park, but miles in every direction. Too bad you’ll be spinning around too fast to see more than a blur. On SkyScreamer, it’s like you’re flying on top of the world now.
