A fairly enjoyable swing ride, but not great speed. The wooded atmosphere certainly helps make it a mite more exciting. Children will love this, those with acrophobia will not, and it's just OK for most adults.

The ride is set up in single file. Everybody always wants the outside seats anyway and that's all they got. Very low height for a wave swinger. It's speed is average or a little higher.

This was a decent flying trapeze. I liked this ones setting as it came close to the surrounding trees during the ride. However, this one wasnt all that fast, but this one did have a pretty long cycle.

Funtowns Flying Trapeze is an excellent swing ride, that shouldnt be missed. Like most Flying Trapezes, this one is built by Chance. This Flying Trapeze, is better than most, because of its excellent setting. Funtowns Flying Trapeze, is nestled in the back of the park, surrounded by trees. As a plus, Funtowns Flying Trapeze never has a wait, because of its high capacity. It takes Funtown a while to load the Flying Trapeze, because of the chest strap, the chain, and the bar. However, most Yo-Yo rides take a long time to load, so Im used to it. Your ride begins, by slowly lifting off the ground, and slowly starting to travel forwards. You then get higher off the ground, and swing faster, and faster, until youre at maximum speed. Next, the ride tilts to a 10 degree angle. While at max speed, and while the ride is at full tilt, you come very close to trees, and you can almost touch them. Then, the ride stops tilting, and you slow down. Next you lower back down to the ground, and stop spinning, ending the ride. Overall, this is a very nice ride, and it shouldnt be missed. I recommend this ride to anyone who enjoys wave swinger, or swing rides, like this.

This ride is awesome! its fast, it tilts, is swings, it comes dangerously close to the tops of trees, and gives you that "oh my god what just happened?!?" feeling every time the top locks in to place! Agreed that, like most rides in teh park, a little themeing could really improve the ride.. but overall its wonderful!

Brings you close to the trees and pretty high up.The placement topographicaly is great, the land slopes down behind it, and up a bit to the front increasing the thrill. Once the top portion tilts, this becomes quite an exciting ride. Almost never a line, good option when you just too late to get on the Thunder Bolt.

This is a carnival ride placed in a park setting. The ride doses do a little more then most. Though I would like to see them update to a flying carousel. This ride just make the park look more like a carnival or fair ground then an amusement park.
