The Texas SkyScreamer is open for thrill seekers at Six Flags Over Texas.
Six Flags Over Texas is taking visitors to new heights.
The park's 400-foot tall Texas SkyScreamer officially opens on Saturday.
Six Flags Over Texas offered a sneak peek of its newest attraction, the tallest tower swing in the world, on Thursday.
"This is the perfect ride. It's a really good addition," said Paul Johnson, a Six Flags regular.
From the ride's 40-story peak, 24 riders can catch a glimpse of much of North Texas.
"It might be 400 feet in the air but, you know what? It's about the thrill of being a big kid again," said Nick Canizales, who had a chance to ride the SkyScreamer during Thursday's sneak peak.
But the thrill is probably not for the faint of heart, Johnson said.
"You're flying around like crazy, wondering if your heart is going to stop, wondering if you're going to get out of this thing alive," he said.
The ride officially opens to the public on Saturday. Season ticket holders will get a special sneak peak opportunity on Friday.
