Six Flags Over Texas has begun installing the enormous tower sections for the Texas SkyScreamer, the new spinning tower ride that will debut at the park later in 2013.

While the Texas SkyScreamer will be of a near-identical design to the SkyScreamer attractions at several other Six Flags parks, it will top them all by standing at a record-breaking 400-feet tall. It will offer a vertigo-inducing variation on the traditional "Chair-O-Plane" ride experience, with guests being seated in chairs that dangle from a circular gondola. This will spin as it rises to the top of the tower, offering views across the park and beyond.

Six Flags has installed SkyScreamer spinning tower rides at a number of its parks over the last few years, and Six Flags Over Texas is the destination for its biggest yet. No firm opening date has been set for the attraction as yet.

You can keep up to date with the latest confirmed and rumored opening dates for new attractions through Theme Park Tourist's "New Attraction Watch" section, and by signing up for our weekly newsletter.
