Triple, Record-Breaking Maxx Force Coaster Ready for Launch at Six Flags Great America
Park’s 17th Roller Coaster Make Its World Record Debut
GURNEE, Ill. — July 2, 2019 — Six Flags Great America, the Thrill Capital of the Midwest, today debuts its newest and most anticipated roller coaster—the world record-breaking Maxx Force. This innovative, one-of-a-kind thrill machine uses air-powered technology to launch riders from zero to 78 miles-per-hour in under two seconds, making it the fastest launch of any coaster in North America. Maxx Force also breaks two world records for the tallest double inversion and the fastest inversion on the planet.
“Maxx Force is absolutely revolutionary, taking Six Flags innovation to an all-new level of extreme,” said Six Flags Great America Park President Hank Salemi. “The breathtaking acceleration of this coaster alone makes it an incredible ride, but add three record-breaking features plus five high speed inversions and you have an astonishing coaster experience unrivaled by any other ride in all of North America.”
Guests will reach record speeds and fly head over heels on this massive new addition to the Six Flags Great America coaster collection.
Maxx Force highlights include:
- A unique air-powered launch system propels guests forward at record speeds;
- The world’s tallest double inversion at 175 feet above the ground;
- The fastest inversion on any roller coaster in the world with a 60 mile-per-hour zero-G roll;
- Five high-speed inversions; and
- One-of-a-kind custom coaster trains modeled after Formula One racing cars.
