New theme park attractions will highlight Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn and other DC characters.
NORTH AMERICA–Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, has teamed up with Six Flags Entertainment to debut a score of branded rides and attractions in 2018.
First, Six Flags Fiesta Texas will debut the world’s first single rail coaster and first-ever Wonder Woman-themed coaster–Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster. The new ride will feature a 90-degree drop as well as two airtime hills, a 180-degree stall, overbanked turns and a zero-g roll.
Six Flags Mexico will also add a Wonder Woman-themed coaster next year. The new, 4D free fly coaster will lift riders straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill before flipping them head-over-heels, backward and forward multiple times.
Meanwhile, Six Flags Great Adventure will launch the first ride themed after DC Entertainment’s superhero Cyborg. The new ride, called Cyborg Cyber Spin, will feature a triple box design that allows the gondola to spin around three separate axes while rotating forward, backward and sideways.
Next, Six Flags New England and Six Flags Over Texas are set to debut Harley Quinn Spinsanity, a pendulum ride that will whirl guests back and forth at up to 70 miles-per-hour.
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will also launch a Harley Quinn ride, titled the Harley Quinn Crazy Coaster. The new ride is an inverted looping coaster that features multiple inversions along a vertical, figure eight track.
Finally, Six Flags Magic Mountain will once again host Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Fright Fest Experience. During the fall event, the park’s DC Universe section will be transformed through digital imagery and fiery special effects as the popular characters from the film Suicide Squad roam the streets.
“This is our most impressive and ambitious new capital rollout ever. Many of the rides and attractions we are introducing next year are ‘world’s firsts’ and record breakers as we deliver fun-packed innovation at the highest level. Innovation is in our DNA and our guests expect and deserve one-of-a-kind experiences when they visit our parks,” says Jim Reid-Anderson, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Six Flags. “Our strategy of providing something new in every park, every year, continues to delight our guests and has resulted in attendance growing to over 30 million guests annually and record revenue and EBITDA in each of the last seven years.”
