AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Six Flags New England is now home to the tallest swing ride on the planet.

22News was at the park on Thursday for the inaugural ride for the Sky Screamer. The record-breaking spinning tower stands at more than 400 feet tall and swings riders at 40 miles per hour.

Andrew Bobik of Southington, CT told 22News, “More nervous going up but once you get up there it’s like, I don’t know I thought it was fun. Going up was scary but coming down it’s like ‘Oh it’s over! Ok!’”

The view from the top may be worth the ride. On a clear day, you can see as far as 50 miles around the Pioneer Valley.
