 Review of SwingShot @ Kennywood

SwingShot is currently sitting very near the top of the heap when it comes to Kennywoods flat/thrill rides! In short, this ride certainly delivers, and Kennywood got plenty of bang for their buck with this! This is your typical mid-sized Screamin Swing installation from the folks at S&S. It stands around 70 feet tall, with maximum swings approaching 90 feet. Essentially, this ride is everything you ever wanted to do on a swing set as a child, but usually couldnt come anywhere close to doing before a parental unit would yell "cut that out!!" The loading process is very efficient, and the Kennywood crew does a great job cycling people through the ride. SwingShot has some good speed during the swings, and you get a wonderful floating/airtime sensation on either end of the maximum swings. And thats where this ride really garners some credit from me - during my rides, I have gotten a good 4-6 swings at the maximum height! Compare this to the much taller Skyhawk at Cedar Point, which only delivers 2 maximum swings. Frankly, Ill gladly take a somewhat shorter version if it gives me more max. swings like SwingShot does! A fine addition to the Lost Kennywood section of the park, I find it neat that they placed it next to the parks Wave Swinger. Its like they are saying, this ride is for folks who like to swing, and THIS new ride is for folks who REALLY like to swing! Definitely a fantastic flat ride that will certainly be swinging loads of happy riders for years to come!!
