Water coasters and the world's tallest, fastest, and longest single-rail coaster lead the announcement of new attractions for the 2020 season from Six Flags today.
Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey will be getting Jersey Devil Coaster, a single-rail coaster that will stand 130 feet tall and reach 58 mph on 3,000 feet of track. The coaster will feature two inversions.
Meanwhile, Six Flags Great America near Chicago and Six Flags Over Texas near Dallas will be getting water coasters, though from their descriptions it seems that one is more of the water slide type of that ride while the other is more a traditional coaster. (Think Krakatau versus Journey to Atlantis here.)
Tsunami Surge at Six Flags Great America will reach 28 mph along 950 feet with a maximum height of 86 feet.
In Texas, Aquaman: Power Wave will stand 148 feet tall with a top speed of 63 miles per hour along 700 feet of track. The ride will feature a backward launch and a forward launch from a 90-degree angle "for the ultimate splashdown." Six Flags is calling this the park's 15th coaster.
At Six Flags' largest park, Six Flags Magic Mountain, there is no new ride for 2020, as 2019's new attraction — West Coast Racers — just topped out track construction yesterday.
Instead, Magic Mountain is getting an expansion of Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park, both of which will utilize the rethemed "The Underground" area around West Coast Racers.
Here is the announcement video from Six Flags Chairman, President and CEO Jim Reid-Anderson.Tweet
