The ride swings in a pendulum motion while rotating clockwise. At the peak, riders reach a height of 140 feet (43 m) above the ground although the structure of the ride is only 84 feet (26 m) tall. The pendulum motion propels riders back and forth at 70 miles per hour (110 km/h) at an arc of 120 degrees.[1]
