New coasters slated for Six Flags, Hersheypark

September 28, 2007, 3:00 PM · There's a slew of 2008 park announcements this week, as Six Flags and Hersheypark release information about new attractions for next year:

At Hersheypark, an Intaride vertical lift inverted coaster, Fahrenheit, will feature a 90-degree lift and 97-degree drop.

At Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags Great America and Six Flags New England, The Dark Knight Coaster will debut as the company's first themed indoor coaster that I can recall. It sounds like a wild mouse design, but with a Batman vs. The Joker theme.

New or reinstalled coasters also will debut in 2008 at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

All the information I have about new rides for 2008 is available on the update What's New or Under Construction at Top Theme Parks. Feel free to edit it with any additional confirmed information you have.

And great, another Batman themed oaster at Six Flags...

The computer sim video for Fahrenheit is up on the HersheyPark website. From what I saw it looks like a mini Millennium Force - same type of design and concept but a heck of a lot smaller - first hill is only 121 feet tall.

Idea! Gotham Movie Theater
