I was on KPunlimited and was amazwd as Skycoaster Island. What other unique things do parks do with their skycoasters?
G.Bush:We will find those who did it, smoke them out of their holes, get them running, and bring them to justice.
I pray that I will never see a Six Flags Conneaut Lake

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.
Hey, SFGAm management, can I buy a couple cages of Sky Whirl?

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.

If you see me running, try and keep up!

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.

SFMM's goes over parts of The Riddlers Revenge and over a part of a midway.
