swingLater today, I will be driving past the world’s tallest tower swing ride, which sends those foolhardy enough to get on-board a whopping 400 feet up in the air.

This so-called “fun” ride officially opened on Saturday at the Six Flags Over Texas amusement park in Arlington.

The Texas SkyScreamer allows up to 24 riders to sit in open-air swings while spinning in a 124-foot circle at speeds up to 35mph.  At its 40 story peak—and if the riders still have their eyes open—they can see not only Arlington, but also Dallas and Fort Worth (not to mention their lives passing before their eyes!)

Will I take a whirl on this ride?  Probably not … I will get air sick just driving by!
