In 2011, Six Flags St. Louis added the SkyScreamer, a 236 foot tall Funtime Star Flyer attraction. The ride holds pairs of guests on seats extended from a tower on chains. Once the ride starts spinning, riders move in a 98 ft. wide circle at 43 miles per hour, over 200 ft. above the ground.

Strange experience. The height makes it inappropriate for small children, the spinning is a bit disorienting and doesn't allow for good views of the park, yet it is not a thrill ride either. The lights at night are not mesmerizing in the same way windseeker rides are either. Not quite sure why it is I came back to it more than once but it did have some sort of addictive quality to it that forces me to give it an (8/10) - Lexi R

The ride itself is not to thrilling actually. Imagine a regular chairswing. However, when lifted 200 some feet into the air, it can become a wonderful thrill ride for everyone. Its not intense really, just kinda freaky. - Joey Till
