Buckle up and prepare for a soaring adventure with Six Flags’s SkyScream. This swing ride provides the perfect middle ground for those seeking family-friendly fun and those with a more adventurous spirit.
Grab a riding partner – riders must be at least 48″ tall to experience this thrill – and sit two across in one of the 16 open-air swings. As the ride begins to ascend to exciting heights, you’ll also begin to spin round and round. You’ll rise up 200 feet above the ground – if you’ve got a weak stomach, don’t look down, you’ll be higher than the park’s quarry walls. As the ride continues to ascend, with your feet dangling and the wind blowing in your hair, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning views of the park and beyond. At its peak, the ride will have you shooting around in an 8-foot circle and reaching speeds at up to 40 mph.
During the daytime you’ll be able to enjoy gorgeous views that stretch miles past the cliff walls, reaching all the way to downtown San Antonio. If you’re a night owl, wait until the sun has set to enjoy this ride. The illuminated arms will twirl above the park, providing a totally new experience set against the backdrop of the night sky.
With only a handful of SkyScreamers in parks across the country – and one of them being right here in San Antonio – you won’t want to miss on this guaranteed thrill of a lifetime.
