The ride is nothing special and generally a pleasant thrill, but the theming takes the entire experience up a few notches. - Tim Chatlos

The Giant Swing is an S&S Power attraction similar to the Skyhawk at Cedar Point. Set inside a huge red barn that is totally within the theme of the park, this intense midway ride is a whole lotta fun. Granted I wouldn't want to wait in a long line to experience it, but on a less crowded day when you can ride with minimal waiting, it is a very fun attraction. - James Rao
