Fireball Blazes Into Six Flags St. Louis in 2016

Theme Park Adds New Looping Thrill Ride to Its Heart-Pounding Line-Up

EUREKA, Mo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags St. Louis, the Coaster Capital of Missouri, will heat things
up in 2016 with the new Fireball. This looping thrill ride will
give guests a pure adrenaline rush as they go forward, backward and
upside down.

Fireball features a single loop that riders will travel back and
forth in, pendulum style, as they build up speed to soar head over
heels. Seated back to back, guests will rocket through a series of 360°
revolutions stopping upside down for some insane hang time before
reversing directions.

“This high-thrill attraction combines suspense and anticipation, and
will be a hit with teens and families alike,” said Dave Roemer, park
president. “With the forward and backward motion as well as the inverted
hang-time, Fireball will deliver the kind of intense thrills our guests
have come to expect from Six Flags St. Louis.”

Fireball Facts:

  • 7 stories tall;
  • 24 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated back to back
    and face to face
  • 360 degree revolutions;
  • Inverted hang time with riders suspended upside down.

This new thriller will be located in the Illinois section of the park
where the Rush Street Flyer currently sits. Fireball is set to
open late spring 2016. For more information about upcoming 2016 Six
