Swing Of The Century

Get ready to soar through the air on the high-flying Swing of the Century, an attraction ideal for the whole family. Swing of the Century will take up to 48 riders through the air in individual seats that are raised and lowered at a soothing pace.

Prior to being called Swing of the Century, it went by a different name: Swing of Siam. Did you know that it also was relocated to the Park? It was initially located where 3-Point Challenge is now in Action Zone across from rides like Psyclone and the Sledge Hammer! Swing of the Century was one of the 26 original rides located on-site when the Park opened on May 23, 1981.

Swing of the Century was manufactured by German-based company Zierer Karussell- und Spezialmaschinenbau GmbH & Co. KM (also known for its shorter name: Zierer).

This is one of the many great rides in the FAST LANE lineup.

Guests must be 48" tall to ride.
