Supreme Scream is not for the faint hearted. This is an extreme thrill ride for the experienced thrill seeker. Standing 325-feet the Supreme Scream is the largest structure in Orange County, topping Knott's own landmark sky tower by 75 feet! Supreme Scream also become the world record holder for the tallest vertical thrill ride.
Passengers are seated in one of twelve outward facing seats on board one of three "scream vehicles" which will rise to a height of 254-feet. From the ground up it may not look that intimidating, but from the top it is a different story. Seated with your feet dangling beneath you, your vehicle will come to a momentary halt upon reaching the top. A momentary halt may feel like an eternity, but with a quick blast of compressed air your suddenly launched down the tower at a speed of 50 mph! Passengers quickly grab the restraints as they loose their stomach and the negative G's lift their rear ends up out of the seat.
Unlike a traditional free fall which ends after the drop. Supreme Scream takes this the thrills to a new dimension by rebounding the vehicles back up the tower for a second drop. The sudden upward rebound results in a positive g-force of up to 4 G's, which is followed by a second free fall. The ride concludes with several smaller bounces back up and down until the vehicle comes to rest at the base of the tower.
