ORLANDO, Fla.-- The world's tallest swing ride is now standing in Orlando.

At 420-feet tall, the giant swing named the Star Flyer rises over its neighbor, the Orlando Eye.

The Star Flyer ran tests this week using headless dummies filled with water balloons instead of actual passengers.

Twenty-four people at a time will be taken above Orlando on the giant swing for three to four minutes, hitting a max speed of 40 miles per hour.

The thrill ride is set to open this summer at Kings Plaza, which will be renamed "Vue at 360."
