Buena Park, CA -- Knott's Berry Farm yesterday debuted its new Screamin' Swing ride just in time for the opening night of the park's wildly successful Halloween Haunt event.
The new S&S designed family thrill ride named "Screamin' Swing" stands over 60-feet tall and takes eight passengers on a smooth, thrilling ride. Riders are air-launched with a blast of compressed air that sends them up 70 feet in the air. The swing reaches a top speed of 60 mph during the 50-second ride. Knott's is the first park in the world to open this exciting new ride.
Screamin' Swing is an upcharge attraction and riders must be at least 48-inches tall. According to online reports Knott's has priced the attraction at $5 per ride.
