A memorable ride that you and your family can enjoy together, our Wave Swinger is a classic swing ride that delivers a mellow -- yet incredibly exhilarating -- experience, as you glide through the air in swings suspended 13 feet above the ground. Under a high canopy of intricate, elaborate murals resembling those on a carousel of ages past, you’ll rotate 360 degrees in a circular, wavelike motion. Arcing upwards and accelerating downwards, you’ll certainly feel each and every element of this time-honored amusement park experience all the way down to your free-floating toes. Enjoy breathtaking views of the park and wave to those below, but make sure to still hold on tight, because you’ll be zipping right along! At night, the Wave Swinger delivers an entirely new experience when its tower and canopy are illuminated with thousands of shimmering lights. You’ll feel like you’re swinging on a star!
