"We are thrilled to introduce the kind of innovative, world-class
attraction that Six Flags is known for," said Darien Lake Park President
Chris Thorpe. "This high-flying tower ride will offer guests a chance to
soar through the clouds with majestic views of the park and surrounding
countryside far below. Six Flags SkyScreamer is an exciting, new
addition befitting the name Six Flags Darien Lake."

Once the 32 thrill-seekers board the ride, it quickly rises, taking
guests 24 stories into the air while spinning round and round at speeds
of up to 35 miles per hour. By night, Six Flags SkyScreamer's
bold, synchronized light package will light up the skies.
