That's nice. I've been there about 2 times in the past 3 Years. Pretty good park, good funnel cakes. :cool:

Here's some stats -

Height- 7.5 stories

Capacity
700 passengers per hour

Maximum Speed
45 miles per hour

Acceleration
Launch Swing System
Provides Immediate Launch!

hmmm, that sounds odd, "immediate launch", wonder what that means?
Anyway, the storyline sounds good though, gotta love them for really adding detail into the ride like that. See, these things can be themed ;)

^Immediate launch? More like It's over before it began! :lmao:

Apart from the short ride cycles, I've always found Screamin' Swings a little too forceless, even though the sensation isn't supposed to be ejector airtime, I've been on pirate ships with better out of seat action. But they are popular rides, so SDC aren't making a bad move by putting one in.

Dude... totally uncalled for. Everyone is open to their own ideas...

Anywho, seems like these rides are popular with families and the GP, so it should be a good addition for SDC. Wanna bet they got a discount because of Powder Keg?

How is "Powder Keg"

The line was awfully long last time I went.

Love the theming. KBF's sure would have blended much better and not look so awkwardly out of place had CF bothered to theme theirs like this.

Im not sure this is enough to get me down to SDC still, the four hour drive just doesnt seem worth it yet. Maybe in a few years when that get another new coaster? Anyways, its cool to see they are going to theme it.

I think that the immediate launch thing means it just goes straight into the swinging, like there isnt a slow, meaningless buildup of speed.

Anyways, yipee SDC. I bet that the whole thing being inside a barn will create a real tunnel effect for a portion of the ride. Awesome
