Six Flags New England to be Home of World’s Tallest Swing Ride

Agwam, MA, USA — MASS Live reports on the Agwam Zoning Board of Appeals giving the green light to Six Flags New England for the world’s tallest swing ride:

“The Zoning Board of Appeals voted unanimously Monday to grant the special permit Six Flags New England needs to build the highest swing-set ride in the world at its amusement park on Main Street.

“The amusement park wants to build a 385-foot-tall swing set ride to be called the “Star Flyer.” It would replace the park’s “Sky Coaster” ride.

“And just to ensure that the attraction will still be the highest swing set ride in the world should a competitor swing into action, board member Gary E. Suffriti attached the condition that Six Flags can built up to 410 feet high without coming back before the board.”
