Fireball Is Bringing the Heat to Six Flags St. Louis
The Ultimate Coaster Loop Adds More Thrills to The Coaster Capital of Missouri
Fireball…The Ultimate Coaster Loop opens at Six Flags St. Louis May 7, 2016. With the addition of this single loop thrill ride, the theme park will boast ten unique coaster experiences for thrill-seekers of all ages.
Riding back to back in unique “face-off” seating, guests will soar back and forth, pendulum style, as they build up speed to propel them head over heels through a series of 360° revolutions. Mid-way riders will stop upside down for some insane, inverted hang time before reversing directions. Fireball is a pure adrenaline rush as guest’s rocket forward, backward and upside down. The 7-story tall, single loop coaster experience will be located in the Illinois section of the park.
“We are excited to be bringing our guests another unique coaster experience with Fireball,” said Peter Carmichael, park president. “When combined with our new virtual reality coaster coming late May and our new Holiday in the Park celebration starting in November, there is no better time to become a Season Pass holder at Six Flags.”
Fireball Hot Facts:
- 24 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated back to back and face to face
- 360° revolutions
- Inverted hang time suspends riders upside down
- Operator controls the ride with a joy stick so each ride can be different
