Major Boardwalk Area Enhancements Feature New Guest Amenities
SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Prepare for sensory overload as three new mind-bending rides anchor an
exciting new Fiesta Bay Boardwalk in 2016 at the Thrill Capital of South
Texas, Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Guests will find themselves looping,
spinning, and soaring as they experience the new high-adrenaline thrills
on Fireball, featuring a massive 7-story looping frenzy; Hurricane
Force 5, where riders take on the power of a storm and swirl
round-and-round while soaring high into the air; and Spinsanity,
the ultimate whirling adventure for daredevil riders.
“The entire Fiesta Bay Boardwalk area at Fiesta Texas will undergo a
spectacular transformation in 2016. The three incredible new attractions
will bring completely new types of thrills for our guests, as will our
new culinary and interactive games offerings,” said Park President Neal
Thurman. “The new Boardwalk will have all the excitement and ambiance of
a favorite seaside getaway.”
Headlining the 2016 roster of thrills is a Texas-original, Fireball.
With its unique seating pattern, Fireball will deliver an
unanticipated weightless swirling action as guests encounter:
- A “face-off” with 24 riders seated face-to-face to begin their journey;
The thrill of being rocketed both forward and backward, through a
bedlam of loops;
Being suspended upside down 72 feet in the air.
Another distinct offering in this new trio of thrills – Hurricane
Force 5 will rotate both clockwise and counter-clockwise with guests
sitting on motorcycle-like seats facing outward. This giant 24-passenger
hurricane-shaped disc will arc from side to side on an almost 5-story
high half-pipe track while rotating at 14 revolutions per minute. This
innovative attraction is a first-of-its-kind in the state.
A third new attraction, Spinsanity, will send riders spinning,
twisting and rolling through a cycle of classic, thrilling fun. This
modern adaptation of a traditional Tilt-A-Whirl will provide more
panoramic, unobstructed views and will be unveiled the same year as the
90th Anniversary of the original boardwalk favorite.
In addition to these three new thrill rides, the entire Boardwalk area
will receive additional guest amenities, including new, brighter facades
for all current Boardwalk offerings; new food and games locations; and
refreshed wooden planking underfoot throughout! For more information
