 Review of SwingShot @ Kennywood

This ride is a lot like Aero 360, but I liked it slightly less. There were some problems with the ride that may have altered the ride experience for the worse. One of the 2 arms wasnt working, so Im not sure if this interplay would make the ride any more enjoyable, but it did make the line longer, so that was definitely a negative. The view from this ride isnt as good as it is from Aero 360, but the fact that the ride swings over a walkway and over the line up adds to the appearance of danger a little bit. However, in my opinion I think that the park could have done without the addition of this ride, since people who like this type of sensation can get it on Aero 360.

I disagree, they are two totally different rides. The Aero 360 goes upside down and doesnt have the floating air that swing shot has. Plus Aero has OTSRs.

Youre entitled to your opinion, but you havent really said much to convince me, otherwise. What you say is true about restraints and going upside down on Aero 360. However, I found that I received similar amounts of floating airtime on both rides. Obviously, I mean during the non inverted part. I did not say that they were identical rides, but on my rides on both, I found that the forces exerted were quite similar, even with the difference in restraints. At least it was not an upcharge attraction, like these are at some other parks.

Yeah, I did explain that poorly.

Aero 360 is focused around the Positive Gs, inversions, and hangtime. SwingShot and other S&S Swings are all about the ejector airtime with a minimalist restraint system. Theyre two different ride experiences. I prefer S&S swings personally, despite their relatively low capacity
