"Another unusual attraction located along the east promenade, was the Haunted Swing illusion during the 1904 season where a dozen people sat on a suspended swing. Attendants would start it swinging, but after they left the room, the passengers would discover the swing was gaining momentum. It was only an illusion where the entire room and its fastened furniture revolved overhead past the people on the swing."
