The Texas SkyScreamer, which stands at 402 feet, 10 inches, was crowned the "world's tallest swing carousel ride." It is 19 feet taller than the previous record-holder, a tower swing in Vienna, Austria.

Since the ride opened in May more than 100,000 people have gone up for a spin. The ride, which swings at a top speed of 35 mph, offers sweeping views of the Dallas and Fort Worth skylines, a park spokeswoman said.

A certificate authenticating the Guinness record is on its way, The Dallas Morning News said.
