Theme park attractions will feature Wonder Woman, the Joker and other DC characters.
Warner Bros. and DC Comics have tapped Six Flags Entertainment Corporation to debut a number of branded rides and attractions in 2017.
First, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Six Flags Great Adventure and Six Flags Over Georgia will host the world debut of the roller coaster Justice League: Battle for Metropolis, which allows riders to become members of Justice League Reserve Team and battle alongside Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, among other heroes, in a 4D experience to save the city.
Meanwhile, Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags Great America and Six Flags New England will debut the roller coaster The Joker, a ride that takes its guests up a 12-story, 90-degree hill before being flipped head-over-heels at least six times.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the DC brand as it continues to resonate well with our guests,” says Hank Salemi, park president, Six Flags Great America. “The Joker is undeniably one of the greatest super villains of all time. This free-fly coaster will perfectly capture the essence of the warped and unpredictable nature of The Joker. It will take our park to the next level of thrills.”
Six Flags America will open a new swing ride, titled Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth, that will spin riders in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 miles per hour atop a 24-story tower.
Finally, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will also showcase a Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth ride, however, it will be a pendulum-shaped ride that swings guests back and forth at 70 miles per hour, while rotating counterclockwise and climbing to 147 feet in the air.
The new attractions will be open for the 2017 season.
Additionally, Six Flags Magic Mountain’s annual Fright Fest will feature a new scare zone this fall, titled Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Fright Fest Experience. The new section will transform the park’s DC Universe area into DC Midway City, where the “worst heroes ever” from Warner Bros.’ recent film will be roaming the streets.
