Elitch Garden's Star Flyer is not for those with a weak stomach

Elitch Gardens is getting ready for its 127th season.

DENVER - Looking for a thrill?

Elitch Gardens has you covered!

If you think you've already experienced everything the Denver amusement park has to offer, think again.

The Star Flyer is one of the tallest rides in Colorado.  It allows riders to soar above the Denver skyline.

Hopefully you have a strong stomach because this thing not only takes you up 17 stories but it spins you around at 50mph!

Are you nervous? Wishing you had a guinea pig to try it out first? 9NEWS Mornings has you covered, or at least TaRhonda Thomas does.  

TaRhonda hopped on this extreme swing ride Wednesday morning. 

While the Star Flyer holds 48 riders, TaRhonda conquered this all alone, in the open-air seats, feet dangling, hair blowing and ascending to the top of the 17-story tower to give you the best view.

Watch her soar in the video above.
