Six Flags Entertainment Company – the world’s largest regional theme park company and the largest operator of waterparks in North America – has announced a sweeping collection of world record-breaking roller coasters and family attractions, along with massive park upgrades and rebrands for the 2019 season.
Here’s a list of Six Flags parks along I-10, and the new attractions coming in 2019:
West Coast Racers, the world’s first racing launch coaster — opening at Six Flags Magic Mountain (Valencia, California), the Thrill Capital of the World. Designed in partnership with the world famous West Coast Customs, this one-of-a-kind racing coaster will feature two side-by-side tracks with four individual high-speed launches. The race covers two complete laps, multiple airtime hills, extreme high-banked turns and exhilarating over/under near misses. A highlight of the ride is an immersive real time “pit stop” exclusively designed and produced by West Coast Customs. West Coast Racers will be the park’s 20th roller coaster, which is more than any other theme park on the planet.
Wet n’ Wild Splashtown (Houston, Texas), the largest waterpark in Houston, and Wet ‘n Wild Phoenix, the largest waterpark in Arizona, will each be rebranded Six Flags Hurricane Harbor for the 2019 season. Both of these lush, beautiful properties offer thrilling, high-speed waterslides and massive pools, along with playful kid-sized attractions for families and young children.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas (San Antonio, Texas), the Thrill Capital of South Texas, will debut the tallest and fastest spinning pendulum ride in the world. Named after the world’s most iconic Super Villain, The Joker Wild Card delivers a unique brand of chaotic, dizzying fun for extreme thrill-seekers. Towering a record-breaking 17-stories tall, this impressive giant disk will reach speeds up to 80 miles per hour as it whips back and forth, and higher and higher, to give riders a spectacular view of the world below them. The Joker Wild Card will become the centerpiece of a newly themed DC Universe area. The park is also announcing year-round operation, adding winter weekends and holidays to its regular operating season.
Six Flags Over Texas (Arlington, Texas), the Thrill Capital of Texas, will welcome the world’s largest loop coaster — Lone Star Revolution. Towering at 100 feet in the air, this exhilarating, record-breaking new coaster takes riders forward and backward on a gigantic loop before suspending them upside down for extended adrenaline-pumping hang-time. Thrill-seekers will travel in unique “face-off” seating positions and swing through a long series of 360-degree revolutions before reeling downward in the opposite direction. Lone Star Revolution is a Texas-sized loop coaster with Texas-sized thrills.
