After sprinkling in a few new ride reveals over several weeks, the Six Flags has now announced a slew of new rides and attractions for the 2024 season.
The bigger additions include three new roller coasters, which we’ve covered in separate articles:
- Flash: Vertical Velocity at Six Flags Great Adventure, the first Vekoma Super Boomerang coaster in the U.S.;
- Bobcat, a Gravity Group family wooden coaster for Six Flags Great Escape — the first new coaster at the park since 2005;
- An unnamed “Ultra Surf” coaster from Intamin for Six Flags Over Georgia.
Beyond the coasters, Six Flags also announced several other thrill and family rides being added across the chain for next season, along with some enhancements to existing attractions and areas. These include:
- Two 172-foot-tall pendulum rides: one dubbed Sky Striker at Six Flags Great America — the park’s first new ride in five years — and The Joker: Carnival of Chaos at Six Flags St. Louis. Both are the same model as Magic Mountain’s CraZanity;
- Six Flags America will retheme its Coyote Creek section into SteamTown, featuring a new Zamperla NebulaZ ride called SteamWhirler and a reopened Mind Eraser coaster with new trains;
- Six Flags Over Texas will be upgrading its El Rio Lento log flume with a new lift bill and two big drops, making it “one of the world’s longest log flumes,” according to a Six Flags press release;
- Six Flags Fiesta Texas is expanding its DC Universe section with its own NebulaZ ride, called Cyborg Cyber Revolution, a monorail ride, and a family drop tower dubbed Shazam: Tower of Eternity.
The additions follow Theme Park Tribune’s previous reporting that the Six Flags spent the last IAAPA Expo in Orlando shopping for new attractions that could be installed quickly. The chain had seen steep drops in attendance and revenue in 2022, though the company reported that revenue and earnings increased in the second quarter of this year.
