The new SkyScreamer ride at Six Flags New England opened May 23. Billed as the planet’s tallest swing, it swings riders 400 feet in the air (more than 40 stories above the ground) at 40 miles per hour.
We turned to social media to get the reaction of the attraction’s first visitors in the past few weeks. They’ve laughed. They’ve cried. They’ve taken one look and typed “#hellno.’’
“Such a fun ride!’’ wrote Lisa Wawrzynowski from Connecticut, who grabbed this shot from afar:
