I've been on a few Screaming Swings now and I like the middle sized better where you get a longer ride cycle. Cedar Point's was a big dissapointment since it's over before it even starts.
Also putting a taller version would be difficult on that location.

Good to the last drop

Wow, what's up with the guy riding on top of the S&S car? Was he a maintenance personnel or something? Weird...

Building a Swing Shot that tall would be hard seeing as the forces are twice as much...not to mention that chambers to compress the gas. It really depends on the park for the cycle of an SS. If you hit a park on a slow day, you get a longer ride, but when you hit a park on a packed day, they use the shortest cycle to speed up the line.

Queue for the Sky Hawk was short, re-rode it 2-3 times within a few mins.

Ride accident @ Liseberg

Postby Olov » Tue Jul 15, 2008 10:28 am

Liseberg had another accident this evening where a ride malfunctions. The Huss Rainbow gondola fell down on the grownd after the gear seemed to have collapsed. 36 people were on it and several injured were sent to hospital. Doesn't look good.

Oh god, that looks awful, I recall there being some concerns over the mechanics and potential for failure with the similar Weber 1001 Nacht model as well a few years ago.

Good that there appear to be no fatalities.

Translated from Danish News Site:


36 persons is seriously injured after an accident in a Swedish amusementpark, Liseberg in Göteborg.

The flat ride, Rainbow, suddently fell to the ground from it's holding platform, while it was running. The director of Liseberg says that nobody was thrown out of the ride, but there are people still are fastened with their restraint, and they are hard to release, seing as the ride is 'squeezed'.

The flat ride can hold 24 passenger, which means that people on the ground must have been hit too.

There are no reports of deaths.

The area around the ride was imidiatly closed.

The incident is the latest of alot in Amusement Parks around Denmark and Sweden the last weeks.
