the 'Skyhawk' ride opened at Cedar Point, in Cleveland Ohio in 2006

the arms are 84 feet in length
the maximum swing goes 120 degrees either side of the vertical (yes, 120 degrees - yikes)

what is the arc length for this maximum swing?

video clips show the swing in operation - either on Vimeo or YouTube
