Twisted Mayhem of THE JOKER Unleashed at Six Flags Great Adventure

First Riders to Conquer Coaster Themed to Iconic DC Comics Super-Villain 

Today, ultimate thrill seekers visiting Six Flags Great Adventure, the world’s largest theme park, will take on the newest roller coaster, The Joker, when it previews to coaster fanatics and Season Pass holders. The new 4D, free-fly coaster is the park’s 14th scream machine, and arguably the most insane among its world-renowned collection.

“Six Flags Great Adventure has a legendary reputation for the biggest lineup of coasters in the Northeast, and now The Joker takes this collection to the edge and beyond,” said roller coaster expert Tim Baldwin. “This genre of ride is so unique. There is no track below you and nothing above you, so riders are truly doing these acrobatic maneuvers mid-air. The combination of flips, drops and ultra-cool straight-up 120-foot lift makes this coaster totally different than all the other world-class coasters at Great Adventure.”

The unique design of The Joker features:

  • Massive, imposing, floating and twisting I-box track frame in a unique purple and green 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
  • 4D wing vehicles that seat up to 8 per vehicle with a total of 5 vehicles
  • 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
  • Two beyond 90-degree “raven” drops creating the sensation of free-falling

“The Joker is undeniably one of the greatest DC Comics Super-Villains ever created. Only someone with his warped sense of humor could provide this level of insanity or spinsanity with a new, vertical coaster that delivers gravity-defying somersaults with utter unpredictability,” said Six Flags Great Adventure President John Fitzgerald. “It is the perfect addition to our dynamic line-up of award-winning roller coasters because this ride delivers total mayhem with its next-generation, cutting-edge thrills.”

The Joker previews to Season Pass holders through Friday evening, and opens to the general public on Saturday. For more information about the 2016 season at Six Flags Great Adventure, visit
