Skycoaster, most commonly also named Ripcord (in Cedar Fair, L.P.-owned theme parks) or Xtreme SkyFlyer (in former Paramount-owned theme parks), is an amusement park ride, produced and managed by Skycoaster, Inc.. On the ride, riders in groups of 1 to 3 are winched to the top of a launch tower and then dropped to the ground, swinging from a cable tether back and forth until brought to a rest. Sky Coasters can range from 100300 feet (3091 m) in height. In most cases, riders who already paid admission to the park must pay again to ride the Skycoaster.
