New Six Flags Coaster Concept Showcased at IAAPA EXPO
Six Flags and S&S Sansei Join Forces on Fourth Dimensional Coaster Concept
Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world’s largest regional theme park company — unveils an innovative coaster vehicle which rolls into action at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in 2015, as part of a major expansion in the park’s Rockville area.
“The coaster is already generating worldwide excitement and anticipation and we are thrilled to be offering this first-of- its-kind experience to our guests,” said Tom Iven, senior vice president of U.S. park operations for Six Flags.
Guests begin their journey by lifting straight up a 120-foot elevator-type hill. This 4D Wing Coaster challenges riders to “face their fears” as they flip head-over-heels at least six times along the weightless, tumbling adventure. Along the way on this 4th dimensional free-fly coaster, thrill seekers experience exhilarating coaster hills and beyond vertical drops, all the while spinning head over heels. Not only is this cutting-edge attraction the most exciting thrill ride in Six Flags Fiesta Texas history, it is currently not available anywhere else on the planet.
“We are proud to be partnering with Six Flags on this innovative new coaster experience,” said Tim Timco, vice president of sales and marketing for S&S.
