Six Flags' newest splash ride will open next month in Texas, the company announced today.
The long-awaited Aquaman: Power Wave will open March 11 at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, just in time for spring break. Originally announced for the 2020 season (and we all know what happened then), Aquaman: Power Wave is a Mack Rides PowerSplash with a nearly 150-foot face-down drop and a top speed over 62 mph.
"We are so excited to introduce Aquaman: Power Wave to legions of thrill seekers, and we feel that Spring Break is the perfect time for the grand opening of this epic new attraction," Six Flags Over Texas Park President Richard Douaihy said.
The park is calling this its 14th roller coaster, though it promises a splashdown like flume ride. The shuttle ride will be the first of its kind in North America and will feature launches that propel riders both forward and backward along 708 feet of track. A turntable loading station should help with ride capacity, as it allows two 20-person boats to operate on the attraction.
