Skyhawk is a thrill ride at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.It is located in Frontiertown near the middle of the park. It was opened May 6, 2006, the beginning of Cedar Point's 137th season and was Cedar Point's "Project 2006".


Skyhawk is a Screamin' Swing type ride built by S&S Power. The structure itself is 103 feet tall at its highest point, the equivalent height of a ten-story building, making it the world's largest swinging thrill ride. It consists of two swinging arms, both 84 feet tall, seating 20 across and 20 back to back (40 total) At full swing, the ends of the arms approach 125 feet high off the ground--as high as a twelve-story building--and achieve a maximum velocity of 65 miles-per-hour--faster than most wooden roller coasters. The ride lasts about one minute, and can accommodate 800 passengers per hour. Riders must be 48 inches or taller.
