Cedar Point Ride of the Day

Today's ride of the day is Skyhawk!

Skyhawk is a thrill ride located at Cedar Point that was built by S&S Power in 2006. The rides model is a Screamin' Swing, which means that riders sit facing two directions on two different arms that swing in two different directions. The ride is currently the largest ride of its kind, swinging riders over 125 feet, reaching an angle of 120 degrees, which means steeper than vertical! This also means that riders are sent through the swing at speeds of 60 MPH! Skyhawk is a lot more than your average playground swing!
