Six Flags has announced new additions and rides for all of their amusement parks for the coming 2014 season, ranging from kid's area expansion to the world's tallest, fastest, steepest wooden coaster. Click here for the entire list of additions: http://content.sixflags.com/comingin2014/.
Here is a quick snapshot of some of the major thrill rides to be added:
Six Flags Great America
Goliath - the world's tallest, fastest, steepest wooden coaster. The first drop will stand at 180 ft. with an 85 degree angle, and a top speed of 72 mph. The ride will also feature two inversions, along with massive airtime hills and RMC-styled turns. Click here for the official park page.
Six Flags Mexico
The park's Medusa wooden coaster will see a Rocky Mountain Construction Iron Horse treatment, and be converted to a steel coaster hybrid. We have seen a similar conversion for Iron Rattler and the New Texas Giant in the past. Medusa will stand 98 ft. tall, reach 58 mph, and have three inversions. Click here for the official park page.
Six Flags Great Adventure
It turns out Six Flags Magic Mountain isn't the only park to add a drop tower to the side of a 400 ft. tall roller coaster. Zumanjaro will be added to Six Flags Great Adventure in 2014 as the world's tallest drop tower. Riders will be first launched to the top of the tower in 30 seconds, and then experience a 415 ft. drop that reach 90 mph. The drop tower structure will be built onto the world's tallest roller coaster, Kingda Ka. Click here for the official park page.
Six Flags New England
While Six Flags Over Texas built the world's tallest sky screamer in 2013, that record will be broken in 2014 with a 400 ft. sky screamer at Six Flags New England. The New England Sky Screamer will take 24 passengers 400 ft. into the air, reaching speeds of 40 mph. Click here for the official park page. Here is a similar sky screamer at Six Flags Great Adventure:
