2016 Season Passes Go on Sale Today
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (NYSE:SIX), the world’s largest
regional theme park company, today announced a wide-ranging lineup of
exciting and innovative rides and attractions coming to its parks in
2016, including high-thrill coasters, interactive rides, expanded family
offerings, new twists on iconic favorites, and Northern California’s
first-ever hybrid roller coaster.
“Our rides and attractions are consistently ranked as the most thrilling
and innovative in the regional theme park industry and our 2016 lineup
will build on that success,” said Jim Reid-Anderson, Chairman, President
and CEO. “For five years we have maintained our strategy of introducing
something new at every park, every year, delighting our guests with
differentiated new attractions and experiences. It is clear our strategy
is working – guests are thrilled by the continuous stream of exciting
new attractions and park upgrades and we look forward to wowing them
again next spring with our 2016 offerings.”
Today the company announced that:
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will open the most-anticipated new roller
coaster in Northern California in over 10 years, The Joker. The
villainous character’s personality is evident in this extreme hybrid
coaster’s chaotic twists and turns throughout its 3,200 feet of
dual-colored track. With a first ever “step-up under-flip inverted
roll” that takes riders horizontal, The Joker ride will also
feature the ultimate “fake-out” with a unique breaking wave turn, the
only one of its kind on the west coast. Riders will experience a wild
Zero G barrel roll plus 15 extreme airtime moments at maximum speeds
of 53 mph.
Six Flags Great Adventure will dominate as the “king of chaos” in 2016
when the world’s largest theme park debuts its 14th coaster
and the most unique scream machine in its history — Total Mayhem.
After being lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, this 4-D,
free-fly coaster will wreak havoc as riders flip head-over-heels at
least six times along the weightless journey. Thrill seekers will
experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane,
along with unexpected drops as they tumble from one level to the next.
The wing seats amp up the pandemonium since riders will experience all
of this chaos with no track above or below — just the sky, ground and
adjacent lake churning around them. The sister ride introduced at Six
Flags Fiesta Texas in 2015 was named among the Top 10 most anticipated
new roller coasters by USA TODAY and FOX News.
Both Six Flags Great America and Six Flags Mexico, in partnership with
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, will bring the
next generation of interactive thrills to their parks with the debut
of JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis. This immersive, 4D
virtual reality-like ride was named by USA TODAY readers as one
of the Top Ten New Amusement Park Attractions in 2015 and was most
recently awarded Best New Attraction by Theme Park Insider.
Guests become members of the JUSTICE LEAGUE Reserve Team and engage in
a full-sensory journey as they battle alongside BATMAN™, SUPERMAN™,
WONDER WOMAN and GREEN LANTERN against Lex Luthor, The Joker and his
henchmen. Traveling in six-passenger vehicles, riders must outsmart
the villains to save the city of Metropolis.
Six Flags Magic Mountain, the Thrill Capital of the World, will
commemorate its 45th operating season and the 40th
anniversary of the world’s first 360-degree looping coaster,
Revolution, which has delighted over 45 million guests during its
40-year reign at the park. The New Revolution will
feature newly-created special ride effects, a new look, and newly
designed trains that will deliver a smoother, sleeker ride experience
Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, has plans for an
impressive expansion to the GOTHAM CITY section of the park that will
include three new rides in 2016. The area will become the ultimate
battle of BATMAN™ versus villains with the opening of The Riddler
Revenge — a new twist on thrills with guaranteed wicked
high-flying fun; Catwoman Whip — a sinister spin and
tilt ride that is much like its namesake; and Harley Quinn
Spinsanity — a devious take on a classic spinning ride.
Thrilling family fun is in the works as Six
Flags Over Georgia introduces the world’s first DC SUPER FRIENDS
themed area and the all-new Bugs Bunny Boomtown.
The two newly-themed children’s areas will feature 12 rides and
attractions that families can experience together at the Thrill
Capital of the South. This latest expansion is part of a multi-year
plan to provide thrills for guests of all ages at the park and
includes the addition of Hurricane Harbor in 2014, two new devious
rides in Gotham City in 2015 and other exciting additions planned for
It is off to the races to see who is the fastest in the family, as Six
Flags White Water adds the new 60-foot tall exhilarating Wahoo
Racer water slide. The multi-lane mat racing slide complex is the
largest slide of its kind in the world at the South’s Most Thrilling
Water Park. Riders will experience the thrill of racing against their
friends and family members reaching speeds of up to 40 feet per second
on six aero-dynamic designed water toboggans.
The Great Escape is introducing the hair-raising Greezed Lightnin’ in
2016. The all-new super looping thrill ride will rocket guests
360 degrees, reach exhilarating speeds and leave them hanging, waiting
for more. Thrill seekers will be hurled a series of seven full
inversions, both frontward and backward, experiencing suspenseful hang
time at over 70 feet in the air. The new attraction will be located in
one of the most historic and visible sections of the park, and its impressive
lights and flames will transport guests back in time with its 1950’s
theme and hot rod inspiration.
Six Flags America is adding Splashwater Falls — a giant
interactive water playground that features dozens of slides, nets,
sprays, geysers and thrills for the entire family to enjoy. To top off
the fun, a super-sized tipping bucket atop the huge play structure
will dump gallons of water on guests throughout the day. While the
kids are splashing away, parents can relax on the deck area complete
with new lounge chairs and umbrellas.
La Ronde in Montreal is set to bring guests exciting new adventures as
it flips the trains on the iconic Vampire coaster to run
backward, and adds two rides in an all-new section of the park: Avenue
Aventure: Phoenix — a flying scooter ride that puts guests in
control as they soar against the wind; and Gravitor — a fun
adventure that lifts guests high above the ground as they turn around
and around in an ocean of lights and sounds for a real dance party in
Six Flags St. Louis — the Coaster Capital of Missouri, and Six Flags
New England — the Coaster Capital of New England are heating things up
next season with the new seven-story tall Fireball looping
thrill ride. Fireball features a single loop allowing guests to
soar back and forth, pendulum style, as they build up speed to propel
them head over heels. Traveling back to back in unique “face-off”
seating, guests will rocket through a series of 360° revolutions
stopping upside down for some insane, inverted hang time before
Six Flags Fiesta Texas — the Thrill Capital of South Texas is bringing
three new thrill rides to the park along with an all-new boardwalk
area. In addition to the looping excitement of Fireball, two
other mind-bending rides will round out the park’s exciting new Fiesta
Bay Boardwalk. On Hurricane Force 5, riders take on the
power of a storm and swirl round-and-round while soaring high into the
air; and Spinsanity will offer the ultimate whirling
adventure for thrill-seekers.
Six Flags New England is thrilled to relaunch its iconic steel coaster Bizarro
as Superman™ the Ride featuring superhero music and
theming throughout this epic coaster. Riders will feel like Superman™
as they climb over 20 stories into the air and race down like a
speeding bullet at 77 miles per hour. Guests will also experience
twists, turns and weightlessness along the coaster’s one mile of
track. Thrill-seekers will not want to miss this heroic coaster as Superman™
regains his title at the Coaster Capital of New England.
