I know the colors look weird but it grows on to you, when you are at the park! These pictures don't do it justice!

Done, but why doesn't it look 200+ft to me. Maybe it is the scale compared to the Quarry wall ....

How tall are the quarry walls? I'm kind of curious as to how high Sky Skreamer will stand above the walls. Driving down the highway, SFFT is nearly invisible unless you know where to look. I did not even notice the park until I was about to turn off to the exit, so it should be interesting how the ride would stand.

That tower would easily be the best, most ominous looking of the bunch that SF have been installing lately...if it wasn't for that ridiculous looking topper globe. I mean, I know they all have them, but it clashes horribly with the awesome color scheme this one got. :|

I agree.....doesn't look like 200ft to me. The quarry walls are anywhere from 60-90 ft high depending what area of the park you're on. Oh well.....hopefully there is a Rattler remake in the cards for SFFT soon.

The second to last photo above should help a bit. The Superman Loop is 145ft off the ground... Now the grade is about 30ft lover there, but the SkyScreamer is quite the ways away in the back ground. That being said since the tower appears almost the height of the loop I would say yes it is 200ft.

Screamscape Reports:

(4/12/12) I’m happy to report that I’ve been sent a confirmation regarding the true height of the Sky Screamer at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. I’ve been told that the tower is exactly 199 feet tall, just under the park’s 200 ft height limit. While the Scream tower appears to be taller, Scream is said to only be 185 feet tall, but the terrain is a bit higher in that section of the park by comparison, giving it the illusion of being a taller structure. For those wanting to know the breakdown… the ground level piece is 22 ft, each of the four tower sections are 39 ft tall, then a top tower section that is 12 ft and finally the ‘crown’ on top is 9 ft.


I knew the park had a height limit, since they never had anything that tall before... So I guess you have it, SkyScreamer is bigger than Scream!
