Six Flags Entertainment, a regional theme park company and operator of water parks in North America, has announced new rides and experiences coming to its locations. 

“At Six Flags, our relentless drive for innovation is powered by our passion to create moments of pure joy and excitement for our guests,” says Selim Bassoul, president, chief executive officer, Six Flags. “This investment is central to our strategy to create fun and memorable experiences for every member of the family and reinforces Six Flags’ position as the leader in thrills. This builds on our recent efforts to offer new events and dining experiences by also introducing new rides for thrill-seekers and families, all while making improvements to many existing popular rides.” 

Theme parks are among the original location-based experiences. The upcoming investments span across more than a dozen parks and include five new rides in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and DC, bringing DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains to life in exhilarating experiences. In addition, Six Flags will launch three new roller coasters, including a state-of-the-art Ultra Surf coaster, the first Super Boomerang coaster in North America and a new wood coaster featuring modern, revolutionary Timberliner coaster cars delivering an ultra-comfortable ride. 

Highlights of some the new rides coming to Six Flags parks include: 

  • Six Flags Fiesta Texas – An expansion of the DC Universe land will include Cyborg: Cyber Revolution, creating an air-time-filled ride experience of four individual arms rotating in fast, intermeshing orbits; Shazam! Tower of Eternity rotating family drop tower; Metropolis Transit Authority allowing 16 passengers to relax and enjoy an aerial view 17 feet above DC Universe aboard two art deco-styled monorail trains. 

  • Six Flags Great Adventure – To celebrate its 50th anniversary year, the park will introduce the first super boomerang coaster to open in North America – The Flash: Vertical Velocity.  

  • Six Flags St. Louis – The Joker: Carnival of Chaos, standing at a record height of 17 stories, whips back and forth as the giant disk spins guests higher while reaching speeds up to 75 miles per hour. 

In addition to the new rides and attractions, many Six Flags parks will see new theming and other improvements to existing rides. At Six Flags Fiesta Texas, a newly themed Supergirl Sky Flight will lift guests 200 feet in the air offering grand views. Newly themed DC Universe rides at the park include Green Lantern: Airborne, Poison Ivy: Toxic Spin, The Penguin: Gotham City Getaway and Batgirl: Gotham City Chase.
