Six Flags St. Louis has opened Sky Screamer, a very tall variation on the classic Wave Swinger.
See the photos on Negative-G.
Shorter than Paul's normal updates, but that's okay... It's not about an entire park visit; it's just about their new ride.
Looks like fun. I wonder when CF will have their similar rides open? ;)

I like the old style chains and lap restraints!! I'm curious to see how the windseeker restraints make the ride's feel when they open...
Windseeker is open at Canada's Wonderland.
Before you can be older and wiser you first have to be young and stupid.
Wave Swinger opened at Kings Dominion in the '70s.
The 70's was a popular time for swingers of all kinds.
Indeed. I could have experienced some of the other kinds were I not 6.
Just like the wave swinger rides, is there a weight limit for this ride?
The restraints were a bit more than the old swing type. They didn't feel unsafe but honestly I'm not sure how else they could have done it without heavier seats and maybe an otsr.
