Super-size your swing.

Take your definition of “swing set” and throw it away because towering at 103 feet tall, Skyhawk is going to completely change the way you think of the backyard staple. It has been rewriting the playground rules since its opening in 2006. With two massive swinging arms that stretch 84 feet in length and hold up to 20 passengers on each side, you’ll soon realize that playtime just got a whole lot more intense. Grab a seat and prepare to feel the air rush against your face like never before. Riders are rocked forward and backward, each time flinging higher and higher. Ultimately, Skyhawk’s unique pneumatic technology allows for a strong push going 65 mph that carries riders more than 12 stories into the air. No backyard swing set will ever get you as high or as fast as this. One ride on this thing and you’ll never be able to look at an ordinary swing set the same way again.

Height Requirement: 48” minimum

Rider Safety Information

Min Height
  • A high speed ride featuring two giant swinging arms with 20 seats on each arm. Riders will be pushed towards the sky and experience weightlessness as they reverse direction.
  • An individual lap bar with safety belt secures each rider across the thighs and pelvis.
  • Due to the nature of the restraint, this ride may not accommodate guests of a larger size. A test seat is located at the ride entrance which can be used to ensure proper fit and comfort prior to waiting in line.

  • Guests must have a minimum of three functioning extremities.
  • Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of three functioning extremities if the guest has a normal center of gravity and lower extremities are sufficiently strong to maintain proper riding posture under the dynamic conditions of the ride. Amputations must be below the knee.
  • Guests with a cervical collar, neck brace, broken collar bone, full arm cast, braced arm cast, or full leg cast are not permitted to ride.

  • Alternate access is mainstreamed via the ride entrance. Riders will have to take several steps, on their own or with the assistance of a companion, and be capable of elevating themselves up into the seat.
