AUSTELL, GA (CBS46) -

Visitors at Six Flags Over Georgia will have a new thrill-seeking attraction to try this summer. The new SkyScreamer is set to debut May 24.

At first glance, SkyScreamer appears to be a sweet and innocent swing ride. But it turns out, it's anything but that. It's the tallest attraction in the park's 45-year history.

The extreme swing ride features open-air seats. The ride starts slowly, swinging riders around and around as it takes them to the very top of the tower, which is 24-stories tall. The ride goes faster and faster, soaring in a 98-feet-wide circle at about 40 miles per hour.

CBS Atlanta News reporter Rebekka Schramm tested out the ride Thursday on Better Mornings Atlanta.

Six Flags Over Georgia is currently open on weekends only. The park opens seven-days-a-week beginning March 24, the day of the SkyScreamer debut.
