Texas amusement park unveils first-ever Wonder Woman coaster
Batman and Superman are teaming up with a new ride at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. On Thursday, August 3, the San Antonio amusement park revealed plans to open the first-ever Wonder Woman roller coaster in 2018, completing the "DC Super Hero Trilogy of Rides."
Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster is introducing a lot of firsts to Fiesta Texas. Not only will it be the only Wonder Woman-themed attraction the world, but it is also the first coaster to use a single I-beam rail.
"Six Flags continues to lead the industry in introducing innovative coasters, rides, and attractions, and Fiesta Texas boasts a number of technological firsts," Six Flags Fiesta Texas president Jeffrey Siebert says in a release. "Continuing that tradition, Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster joins her fellow DC super heroes as the first-ever single rail streamline designed coaster."
Thrill seekers will ride in a single-file line on the coaster, which boasts a 90-degree drop, a zero-gravity roll, an uphill spiral, a 180-degree stall, and more. The ride will explore Wonder Woman's origins on the fictional island of Themyscira, home of the Amazons, so expect a lot of tropical greenery and Greek architecture.
Ready to ride? You'll have to wait — but not too long. Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster is expected to start rolling in spring 2018.
