World’s Largest Loop Coaster Coming to Six Flags Great America

Chicago Six Flags Great America World's Largest Loop Coaster 2018If you’re a coaster fan, hold on to your hat! Six Flags Great America just made a huge announcement. In 2018 the “Thrill Capital of the Midwest” will introduce a record-breaking attraction – the world’s largest loop coaster.

Thrill riders will “face-off” in a unique seating configuration. Guests will be seated back-to-back and face-to-face. They’ll be sent forward and backward on a series of 360° revolutions on a gigantic loop. Then, they’ll be suspended upside down for plenty of serious hang time.

“Six Flags continues to prove that innovation is in our DNA and we are thrilled to introduce yet another world-record breaking coaster to our impressive arsenal of thrill rides,” said Park President Hank Salemi. “Standing at 100 feet tall, this is an experience our guests cannot get anywhere else on the planet. With the multiple inversions and record hang-time, this new coaster packs a punch and is going to be one of our most intense attractions.”

The new coaster will be in the Mardi Gras area and it will be the park’s 16th coaster. There’s no name for the coaster yet, but expect it to be announced soon. Plan your visit in Spring of 2018 so you can try it out.
