There’s A New Wonder Woman Ride Coming To Six Flags And It Sounds Crazy
It will be the first of its kind in the world...
Listen up, thrill-seekers, because the U.S. theme park chain Six Flags has announced a brand new Wonder Woman rollercoaster coming to its Texas Fiesta park in 2018, and it sounds t̶e̶r̶r̶i̶f̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶p̶l̶e̶a̶s̶e̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶u̶s̶ ̶r̶i̶d̶e̶ ̶i̶t̶ amazing.
The ride will be the first single-rail coaster in the WORLD, which seems fitting, considering Diana Prince is pretty unique. And also q scary.
Called the Golden Lasso, it’ll consist of just one 15.5-inch-wide-track, rather than the standard two sets of rails - which will apparently ensure a much smoother ride than traditional (can a rollercoaster be called ‘traditional’?) double-railers.
The deets? The ride, which will carry passengers in their own single seats so that they have unobstructed views of the sheer drops park will start with a 113-foot-climb (oh god), followed by an 100-foot drop at 90 degrees, and will hit top speeds of 52mph. Yeesh.
“I expect it to be crazy smooth,” Larry Chickola, Six Flags Vice-President and chief corporate engineer, told USA Today. “And crazy fun. There will be extremely quick twists and turns – quicker and smoother than regular coasters. You're going to feel like you're gliding through the air,”
Jeffrey Siebert, president of Six Flags Fiesta Texas, added: “It will feel like you're riding Wonder Woman's whip.”
