At 242 feet, SkyScreamer is 40 feet taller than the park's mega-coaster Goliath, and will give passengers a thrilling view of the Atlanta skyline. Thirty-two riders will sit two across in open air swings while spinning to the top of the tower. At full swing, guests revolve in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 mph.

"SkyScreamer is unlike any other ride at Six Flags Over Georgia," said park president Dale Kaetzel. "The sheer height alone will draw attention and the excitement of soaring over the entire park in open air swings will be a unique experience for thrill-seekers of all ages."

SkyScreamer's colorful tower and globe, which is topped with an iconic globe surrounded by the words Six Flags, provides an iconic new look to the overall park skyline.

Six Flags Season Pass Holders get an exclusive sneak peek of the new ride on May 11, 12, 18 and 19.
