Guinness World Records Deems Texas SkyScreamer World’s Tallest Swing Ride [VIDEO]

It has been said, a time or two, that everything is bigger in Texas. So, it stands to reason that the Lone Star state would be deemed the home to the world’s tallest swing carousel ride – the Texas SkyScreamer.

Earlier last week, the Guinness World Records awarded Six Flags Texas the bragging rights as the new record holder for world’s tallest swing carousel. The Texas SkyScreamer beats out the previous record holder, in Vienna, Austria, by nearly 20 feet.

“The notion that everything is bigger in Texas certainly rings true now that the Texas SkyScreamer has officially been named the world’s tallest swing ride,” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas park president. “We are proud to have this iconic landmark serve as a source of entertainment for families and thrill-seekers near and far.”

The Texas SkyScreamer rises up to over 402 feet and allows some 24 passengers to be whipped around at speeds of almost 40 mph above Arlington, Texas.
