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 several times in a row with minimal waiting, it is a very fun attraction.

Short ride but worth doing if there isn't a wait. The thrill factor is up there since you get to dangle for an instant before swinging from 20+ stories over the ground.
