The Six Flags announcement has finally been released, and if you read our article where we talked about what we thought was coming to Six Flags Parks in 2017, you’d see we got most of what was coming to Six Flags in 2017 right. Anyway, we decided instead of doing a singular post for each park, we would just include what all the Six Flags Parks are getting in 2017! Below you will find the official article for each park on what they’re receiving in 2016.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom: Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth

VALLEJO, Calif. — September 1, 2016 Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the Thrill Capital of Northern California, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced its newest ride attraction, WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth, to open in Spring 2017.

“It is our intention to open new, innovative attractions every season,” said Don McCoy, park president. “Wonder Woman is an iconic Super Hero and this character and thrill ride will add greatly to our line-up of DC themed attractions.”

WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth is an oversized pendulum shaped ride that will send guests on a dizzying journey in this thrilling and extreme attraction. WONDER WOMAN, the most iconic female Super Hero, is the embodiment of justice, equality, and peace; she is the symbol of female empowerment, as she seeks to fight evil at every turn.

Some ride highlights include:

·        40 riders will propel at speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour;

·        The ride swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise; and

·        As guests swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of weightlessness at 147 feet in the air.

WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth will be located near two of the park’s newest attractions, Superman Ultimate Flight and The Joker, which opened earlier this year.

Even though Six Flags Discovery Kingdom really already has one of these, it’s still a great addition to the park and the park made a great choice to put it next to Superman: Ultimate Flight. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s going to be awesome walking to the front entrance and see that monstrosity go over your head.

Six Flags Great America: The Joker 4D Free Fly Coaster

Six Flags Great America, the Thrill Capital of the Midwest, and Warner Bros Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, announce plans for its 15thand most maniacal roller coaster to date, the all-new free-fly coaster, THE JOKER. This insanely twisted chaos coaster will be a massive new centerpiece in the Yankee Harbor section of the park, next to BATMAN The Ride roller coaster.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with the DC brand as it continues to resonate well with our guests. THE JOKER is undeniably one of the greatest Super-Villains of all time,” said Hank Salemi, Six Flags Great America park president. “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.”

After being lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, the free-fly coaster will wreak havoc as riders flip head-over-heels at least six times along the weightless journey. Thrill seekers will experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane with unexpected drops as they tumble from one level to the next. The wing seats amp up the pandemonium since riders will experience this wild adventure with no track above or below just the sky, ground and plenty of sinister thrills.

The unique design of THE JOKER features:

  • Massive, imposing, floating and twisting I-box track frame in a unique two-tone design;
  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring smooth head-over-heels free-fly flips providing guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track;
  • 4-D wing vehicles that seat up to 8 per vehicle with a total of 5 vehicles;
  • Face-off seats that allow riders to face each other as they tumble head over heels;
  • A 120-foot-tall, 90-degree hill that is ascended by an elevator-style, chain link lift; and
  • Two beyond 90-degree “raven” drops giving the sensation of free-falling.

THE JOKER is expected to unleash total mayhem beginning in the spring of 2017, and join the ranks of all a long line of legendary roller coasters at Six Flags Great America.

Six Flags Great America is also announcing the start of 2017 Season Pass sales with its special Flash Sale through Labor Day weekend featuring the best deal of the year – savings up to 70% off on 2017 Passes! September 1 through September 5, guests will receive a free upgrade to a Gold Season Pass with every Pass purchased. Gold Season Passes include admission to both Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor, and any other Six Flags theme park, as well as free parking and special admission for friends. 2017 Season Passes provide unlimited visits to Fright Fest® at Six Flags Great America in 2016 and all of 2017. Passholders may also purchase a Premium Season Dining Pass, which includes a lunch, dinner, and snack during every park visit, plus they will receive a 2017 All Season Sport Bottle for unlimited drink refills. Premium Season Dining Passes may be used at any Six Flags theme park.

This is going to be an awesome addition to Six Flags Great America, as these coasters have gotten really good reviews, and I know I wouldn’t mind one if they added one at Six Flags Magic Mountain sometime in the future.

Six Flags America: Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth

Six Flags America, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, announced today a new addition to its already stellar lineup of thrilling rides and attractions.  WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth, a 242-feet tall, sky-high swing ride and the tallest new attraction at the Nation’s Capital of Thrills will open in 2017.

Based on the world’s most iconic female Super Hero, WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth is an extreme swing ride that spins guests in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 miles per hour atop a 24-story tower. With a capacity of thirty-two riders, guests sit two across in open-air swings as they climb to the top of the tower while spinning round and round, offering a breathtaking view while soaring high above the beautiful Maryland and D.C. landscape.

“We are thrilled to announce a new experience that will take our guests to new heights at Six Flags America,” said Rick Howarth, park president. “At 242 feet tall, WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth will be the tallest structure at Six Flags America and the first to feature the most famous heroine of all time.”

WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth will join SUPERMAN Ride of Steel, Batwing and JOKER’s Jinx in offering thrilling experiences based on the world famous DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains. The colossal tower will be visible from every location in the park and will become a new iconic symbol of thrilling fun for guests of all ages.

The best part (or at least one of the best parts) about Six Flags America receiving Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth is now we know Six Flags are still adding Sky Screamers! Which means more parks (Like SFMM, example) could receive one!

THE JOKER 4D Free Fly Coaster features a massive and twisting track frame, in which ride vehicles begin their journey by traveling up a 120-foot elevator-type lift before being released for their highly unusual sensory journey – including two beyond-vertical free falls, in addition to four to eight head-over-heels flips. THE JOKER 4D Free Fly Coaster is one of the most exciting thrill rides in the park’s history.

The unique construction of THE JOKER 4D Free Fly Coaster features:

In the past 2 years they got Wicked Cyclone (we also have a review for WC coming up pretty soon, so be on the lookout for that), A flat ride, a re-theme from Bizzaro to Superman: The Ride & added VR to said ride, and now this year it looks like they’re going to be getting another great addition.

Six Flags St. Louis: Spinsanity

Six Flags St. Louis, the Coaster Capital of Missouri, will send guests reeling with the addition of the new Spinsanity in 2017. This intense thrill ride will give guests a rush of excitement with its dual rocking, spinning motion.

Spinsanity brings a different thrill to the park as the massive disc spins first one direction and then another while spinning from side to side. Forty guests sit on motorcycle-style seats facing outward as the disc flies along the 51-foot high half-pipe track all while whirling around at 14 revolutions per minute. The innovative attraction is the first-of-its-kind at the park.

“We continue to give our guests more and more unique thrills at Six Flags St. Louis” said Pete Carmichael, park president. “The multi-directional movement of the ride combined with the innovative seating design makes Spinsanity a must experience ride.”

Spinsanity Fast Facts:

  • 40 riders are seated on motorcycle-style, pedestal seats facing outward;
  • Giant disc rotates clockwise and counter-clockwise while arcing side to side;
  • Half-pipe track structure stands 5-story’s tall; and
  • Rotates at 14 revolutions per minute

Riders must be a minimum of 48” tall to experience this innovative new thrill ride which will be located across from Tsunami Soaker in the Chouteau’s Market section of the park. Spinsanity is set to open spring 2017.

Looks like it’ll be a little bit of an off year for Six Flags St. Louis, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as this gives them the chance to fix the park up a little bit, which is always nice.

The Great Escape: Bonzai Pipelines

Splashwater Kingdom to Expand with New Body Slides

LAKE GEORGE, NY — September 1, 2016 — The Great Escape’s popular outdoor water park, Splashwater Kingdom, goes Bigger, Better and Wetter in 2017! The Great Escape today announced plans to add Bonzai Pipelines, a pair of dueling water slides, to its 2017 lineup. The attraction will boast the park’s first body speed slides delivering unpredictable twists and turns and huge water park fun.

“Bonzai Pipelines will deliver an exhilarating water ride experience combined with a little friendly competition,” said Eric Gilbert, Six Flags Great Escape Resort president. “This multi-slide attraction will be a great enhancement to the water park and provide another awesome way to cool off on hot summer days. Gilbert added, “From our iconic thrill rides to our two children’s areas and free water park, no other theme park in the area offers this level of entertainment for the entire family and we are excited to continue enhancing our resort in 2017.”

Perched 30 feet in the air, guests will race through nearly 300 feet of banking twists and turns uniquely designed to provide an adrenaline-charged body slide experience. Bonzai Pipelines will feature two brightly colored twisting slides, becoming the 13th attraction in Splashwater Kingdom. The slides will complement the popular Alpine Freefalls in lower Splashwater Kingdom, offering thrill seekers the ultimate water park adventure.

More information about Bonzai Pipelines will be released during a hard hat tour of the attraction’s construction site in the spring of 2017.

This is another off year (surprise, surprise) for The Great Escape. While I would’ve liked to see a new coaster, at this park, it’s just not very likely. But nonetheless, Bonzai Pipelines looks to be a pretty fun waterslide.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas: Thunder Rapids Water Coaster

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — September 1, 2016 — Get ready to ride the power of a storm!

This thrilling water coaster will be positioned in White Water Bay, Fiesta Texas’ FREE water park (included with admission).

Also on tap for 2017, a colorful, new Mardi Gras Festival, featuring eight authentic parade floats artfully created by one of the world-renowned New Orleans float designers, Kern Studios. This delightfully visual event will be presented twice daily every operating day along park streets from March 24 through April 30. To enhance the party atmosphere, Mardi Gras themed food, merchandise and park décor will be prominent throughout the park during this festive timeframe. As a tribute to the seasonal events at Fiesta Texas, several floats will feature a salute to the seasons, including Fright Fest® and Holiday in the Park®.

Thunder Rapids looks like its going to be an instant hit, and I can’t wait to see how it turns out (especially since this is the only real “new” attraction they’re adding at all the Six Flags Parks this year)!

Six Flags Over Texas: The Joker 4D Free Fly Coaster

Most Insane Coaster in the History of Six Flags Over Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas ─ September 1, 2016 ─ Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, announces the opening of its 13th and most maniacal roller coaster to date, an all-new free-fly coaster called, The Joker. Now home to the most roller coasters in the Southwest, Six Flags Over Texas is proud to welcome this wicked and chaotic thrill ride to reign supreme as the most dynamic coaster in the GOTHAM CITY section of the park.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with the DC brand because it resonates well with our guests, plus The Joker is undeniably one of the greatest Super-Villains of all time” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas park president. “The unpredictability and gravity-defying somersaults on this award-winning, spinning vertical coaster is the perfect addition to our already impressive coaster line-up.”

After being lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, the freestyle-coaster will wreak havoc as riders flip head-over-heels at least six times along the weightless journey. Thrill seekers will experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane, along with unexpected drops as they tumble from one level to the next. The wing seats amp up the pandemonium since riders will experience all of this chaos with no track above or belowjust the sky, ground and plenty of sinister thrills.

The unique design of The Joker features:

  • Massive, imposing, floating and twisting I-box track frame in a unique two-tone design;
  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring smooth head-over-heels free-fly flips providing guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track;
  • 4-D wing vehicles that seat up to 8 per vehicle with a total of 5 vehicles;
  • Face-off seats that allow riders to face each other as they tumble head-over-heels;
  • A 120-foot-tall, 90-degree hill that is ascended by an elevator-style, chain link lift; and
  • Two beyond 90-degree “raven” drops giving the sensation of free-falling.

The Joker is expected to wreak total mayhem beginning in the spring of 2017, and reign supreme over the Super-Villainous roller coasters in the GOTHAM CITY section at Six Flags Over Texas.

Six Flags Over Texas is also announcing the start of 2017 Season Pass sales with its special Flash Sale through Labor Day weekend featuring the best deal of the year— savings up to 70% off on a 2017 Passes!

Premium Season Dining Passes may be used at any Six Flags theme park.

Now… this is the only one I have a little bit of a problem with. Six Flags Fiesta Texas has the same exact ride, it’s just a different theme and it’s just like 200 miles south of the park, it just doesn’t make sense to have another one in the same state. Nevertheless, it’s still a great addition to the park.
