New for 2014 - Goliath - Six Flags Great America

The folks at Rocky Mountain Coasters (RMC) have  two great additions to the world next year.  They're certainly on a roll with their new coasters.  This is a custom wooden coaster, which will feature two inversions:  including a dive-loop and an inventive twist on the zero-g roll.  The fact that this coaster even has a dive loop is frightening enough, but this completely wooden coaster will also have the longest drop (180 feet), steepest drop (85 degrees) and will be fastest wooden coaster in the world (72 mph).  Six Flags Great America is removing the Ragin' Cajun wild mouse coaster, to make way for this world class attraction, and I'm sure the residents of Illinois could not be happier!

New for Six Flags Mexico - 2014 - Steel Medusa

It looks like Rocky Mountain Coasters (RMC) is at it again, and we're ever more thankful for their hard work and dedication.  This time, they're reworking Medusa at Six Flags Mexico.  This ride promises to be a "hair-raising" experience, with an inverting first drop, as well as two additional inversions throughout the ride.  All of this takes place on a glass smooth steel track, with lap-bar only restraints.  More after the bump . . .

New for Six Flags Over Georgia 2014 - It's Hurricane Harbor!

Well it looks like all of the speculation was correct, once again.  Six Flags Over Georgia has just announced  Hurricane Harbor for the 2014 season.  This will be the largest expansion ever in the parks history.  In reality, they're removing the Southern Star Amphitheatre to make way for the new attraction, which will be situated behind Skull Island in the Cotton States area of the Park.  More after the bump . . .
