Six Flags Over Texas unveils its latest thrill ride on Saturday as the Texas SkyScreamer roars into action.
Standing 400 feet high, the Arlington amusement park’s tallest attraction holds a record as the world’s tallest tower swing ride. Two riders share each swing, rising above the ground before spinning in a 124-foot circle at speeds up to 35 mph.
At its 40-story peak, the ride provides riders a view of Fort Worth, Dallas and Arlington skylines.
"We are thrilled to add the tallest swing ride in the world to our premier line up of rides and attractions," said Steve Martindale, park president of Six Flags Over Texas, commenting in a news release.
"It offers the most unique ride experience for an attraction of this kind, and also lives up to the Texas mantra that everything is bigger in the Lone Star State," Martindale said.
Painted red, white and blue, Texas SkyScreamer's tower is topped with a globe surrounded with the words "Six Flags, with the park's iconic flags positioned above.
Six Flags Gold season pass holders enjoyed a sneak peek of the new ride on Thursday May 23, with all season pass holders invited to take an early ride on Friday May 24.
Six Flags Entertainment Corp. operates 18 parks across the United States, Mexico and Canada. More information is available at www.sixflags.com/overtexas.
