Six Flags set to debut new “SkyScreamer” ride

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Six Flags New England is placing some of the final touches on a new ride.

It’s called the SkyScreamer and it’s now the tallest attraction at the amusement park. It stands 400 feet tall and takes 24 passengers at a time.

Six Flags New England’s Marketing Manager tells us they’re excited for the opening.

“We are so excited about topping off the New England SkyScreamer,” said Kyle Croegaert. “It’s twice as tall as any other attraction we have here in the park and it is the world record breaker for the tallest swing rider in the world so we’re very excited to bring that here to New England.”

The SkyScreamer will swing riders around at 35 miles per hour, and it’s so tall, you can even see the Connecticut River and the New England skyline.

The ride is scheduled to open this summer.
