Six Flags St. Louis this spring will add SkyScreamer, a 236-foot tower equipped with swings that will twirl 32 guests at a time at speeds up to 43 mph.

I'm sure the chains are perfectly safe. However, I will agree with you that the one in Copenhagen scared the bejeesus out of me. An unbelievable "open and exposed" feeling that I did not enjoy. Windseekers might feel different due to OTS restraints
The promos on the websites for the Windseekers look like they are lap bar only, sort of like a roller soaker roller coaster. I know i would prefer this ride if it had over the shoulder restraints like the Chance Aviator. On that ride, the are comfortable and make you feel secure.

How do you see 236 feet as being taller than 300 some feet? Just curious :)
wow i'm stupid never mind... go KI :)
In regards to Dollywood getting one of these... they already have Sky Rider. Why would they need another?
I was thoroughly disappointed in Sky Rider at Dollywood. Thoroughly. The ride cycle was way too short, and the wing thingie didn't do squat.
