There's the same argument on another board that the maXair riders were Photoshopped in... but whatever.
The arm for maXair goes 120 degrees off horizontal (or, in this case, vertical), I believe. Your head is a little closer to the ground than your feet at full swing.

Cedar Point 2006: Screamin' Swing

Postby ECZenith » Mon Jul 18, 2005 1:15 pm

Sweet! A large capacity Screamin' Swing will be built for the '06 season at CP. I've been on Dorney's smaller version and it was worth the 5 bucks. (Considering most upcharge rides are $20.00 +)

Does anyone know if Thorpe Park's is upcharge or since it's a larger capacity, is it free with admission?

Thorpe parks screaming swing is part of the general admission to the park

I've heard mostly that it will be an upcharge ride, but I can't be sure on that.

EDIT-Well, I guess it's general admission then. Haha.

First Drop reported it recently. I think it's great they're adding more flats to the park.

Wild Adventures (Valdosta, Georgia) has a double model that is free with park admission. It was fun and relaxing, but not really worth any money. When the arms crested at the highest position, you got sort of a weird weightless pop. It was interesting.

Why, in all places, would they put an upcharge ride OUTSIDE of Challenge Park? They could put it in Vertigone's old spot (just like Knott's did).
