I was on KPunlimited and was amazwd as Skycoaster Island. What other unique things do parks do with their skycoasters?

Indiana Beach has theirs over the water, and so is their swing ride.  Even though I haven't been there, I think Big Chiefs has several skycoasters on their property.

Several? I would think that a smaller park, if any would only have one. Hmm....

Yeah, Indiana Beach's looks neat, but I haven't riden it. Doesn't Dive Devil at SFMM flyout over a midway?

Big Chief's has 0 skycoasters. A separatly owned and operated property across the street has a couple, though.

Go to the one in Kissimee, Florida (closer to Disney World than Orlando)... There they have one that I believe it 250-300 feet. It was far scarier than any other one I've been on.

Like I said I have never been to Big Chiefs, but I found the picture that shows several skycoasters near the park.  I trust TriBiggar knows what he is talking about since he's been there.  Here's the pic:

Hmmm...Old Town in Kissemme, Florida.  300 feet tall, located over a man-mad lake with a HUGE fountain that you fly straight towards.  I have ridden this thing and nothing else will ever scare you more!  Hanging by a little cable 300 feet in the air with nothing but this little vest holding you in as a little nerve-wracking!  Also, they have a Speedometer at the bottom of the arch that clocks your speed one your main drop.  I was moving at 81.3 mph!  The only problem is the price...$31 per person.

SFWoA has a unique SkyCoaster!  Only 75 feet tall!  AAAAAAAAA!!!  The horror!  LOL.

hahaha, i think sfa is around 75 feet also (i'd rather be on a swing set!)  Darien lakes is cool because it's right next to the humongous ferris wheel and over water and usually there's people in paddle boats under you and u can also see some fish and ducks as your being pulled up.  It's pretty cool.

Kennywood's also is over water.  I believe that one is the first skycoaster ever.
