Six Flags will add a collection of record-setting and world’s first thrill rides and roller coasters to its amusement parks next summer that promise to go higher, faster and further than ever before.
Six Flags announced a host of new 2020 attractions on Thursday, Aug. 29 for its amusement parks and water parks in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s on tap for Summer 2020 at Six Flags parks across North America.
Six Flags Great Adventure
The Jersey Devil single-rail coaster coming to Six Flags Great Adventure will be the world’s tallest, fastest and longest ride of its kind.
The 130-foot-tall coaster will reach a top speed of 58 mph over a 3,000-foot-long track through the woods. The coaster trains will travel through a raven dive,180-degree stall and zero-gravity roll.
Passengers will sit in an inline-style train with their legs straddling a monorail I-beam track.
Six Flags Over Texas
Six Flags Over Texas will get the first Mack Power Splash launched shuttle coaster in North America.
Aquaman Power Splash will travel backward and forward twice on a U-shaped track before a dramatic splashdown finale that generates a tremendous wave of water.
The 20-seat boat will travel backward up a 148-foot-tall track spike before racing forward across an undulating track skimming over a pool of water to another towering spike. Riders will then hurtle backward again above the lake and up the first 90-degree spike again. After a brief hangtime, the boat will splash down into the lake at 63 mph unleashing a powerful wave.
The first Mack Power Splash debuted in 2016 at Walibi Belgium, a former Six Flags park.
Six Flags Great America
The Tsunami Surge water coaster coming to Six Flags Great America will be the tallest ride of its kind in the world.
The 86-foot-tall water coaster will reach a top speed of 28 mph over 950 feet of slides and tunnels with three gravity-defying ascents and five drops.
Tsunami Surge will feature WhiteWater West AquaLucent translucent fibreglass slides.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Daredevil Dive promises to send riders through banks, dives, loops and inversions.
The new attraction coming to Six Flags Fiesta Texas is billed as the tallest ride of its kind in the world.
The four-seat cars will be themed as steampunk flying machines as they soar over Crackaxle Canyon while engaging in aerial dogfights during a barnstorming journey.
Six Flags New England
The Supergirl Sky Flyer will send riders spinning and tilting while suspended from a massive whirling wheel as they soar seven stories through the sky in open-air vehicles.
The thrill ride will be added to the DC Super Hero Adventures section of Six Flags New England.
Six Flags added a Zamerpla Endeavour ride in 2019 at its St. Louis park called Supergirl Sky Flyer.

The Sidewinder Safari roller coaster will navigate hairpin turns, steep drops and helixes along a 1,400-foot-long track.
