DARIEN CENTER, N.Y.--Darien Lake, a Six Flags Theme Park, and the Coaster Capital of New York, today announced plans to debut the tallest attraction in the entire state — the all-new Six Flags SkyScreamer — for the 2019 season. This staggering, 242-foot tall swing ride will reign as the region’s new, iconic symbol, beckoning guests from near and far. The park will also be rebranded Six Flags Darien Lake when it opens next spring.

“We are thrilled to introduce the kind of innovative, world-class attraction that Six Flags is known for,” said Darien Lake Park President Chris Thorpe. “This high-flying tower ride will offer guests a chance to soar through the clouds with majestic views of the park and surrounding countryside far below. Six Flags SkyScreamer is an exciting, new addition befitting the name Six Flags Darien Lake.”

Once the 32 thrill-seekers board the ride, it quickly rises, taking guests 24 stories into the air while spinning round and round at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. By night, Six Flags SkyScreamer’s bold, synchronized light package will light up the skies.

Six Flags SkyScreamer Facts:
  • A soaring 24-stories tall;
  • 32 riders, sitting two across in open-air swings; and
  • Spinning round and round a 98-foot circle at 35 miles per hour.
Six Flags SkyScreamer is scheduled to open in spring 2019. For more information on Six Flags SkyScreamer and next season at Darien Lake, visit

So this deflagged SixFlags park is getting re-flagged. I know that SixFlags purchased the management contract for the park this year, I have to wonder if the deal was extended to include the whole park instead of just management now. The park will formally be renamed (again) SixFlags Darien Lake when they reopen in Spring 2019.

Oh and they're getting a SkyScreamer... but that's less important news.
