The Giant Swing is an S&S Power Screamin' Swing attraction. It consists of two giant pendulum arms which hold eight riders on each side (32 riders total when both swings are in operation). The arms swing out to an arc of 230 degrees, over 7 stories into the sky, and reach top speeds of 45 mph.

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
