AGAWAM, Mass., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags New England announced today plans to add the planet's tallest swing ride to Massachusetts, the New England SkyScreamer. Adding this new record-breaking attraction will solidify Six Flags New England as the Thrill Capital of New England and will attract guests from around the world.
The New England SkyScreamer will officially be the tallest attraction to join the already amazing line-up of rides at Six Flags New England and become the park's newest icon. The ride will tower over 400 feet in the air and circle at speeds of up to 40 mph. Once the twenty-four thrill seekers board the ride, it quickly rises, taking guests 40 stories into the air and while spinning round and round, riders will experience breathtaking views of the Connecticut River and New England skyline. At night, the New England SkyScreamer's bright lights will beckon guests from near and far.
"We take great pride in offering the finest, biggest and most innovative attractions for our guests," said John Winkler, Six Flags New England's Park President. "The addition of the New England SkyScreamer only enhances our commitment to delivering world-class thrills and attractions to Six Flags New England every year."
The New England SkyScreamer is scheduled to open summer 2014 and this new attraction will be a "must ride" for thrill seekers of all ages.
