GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (NYSE:SIX), the world’s largest
regional theme park company, today announced exciting new attractions
for the 2017 season, featuring an extensive roster of Warner Bros. and
DC Comics branded rides and attractions including the world debut of the
next generation of the award-winning JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for
interactive dark ride. Additionally, the company is
expanding its park portfolio with the opening of a new water park in
Mexico and introducing thrilling rides at each of its other locations
across North America.

“We are tremendously excited about the 2017 season and look forward to
delighting our guests with the types of innovative rides, attractions
and signature events they have come to expect from Six Flags,” said John
Duffey, President and CEO. “We are equally thrilled to be adding a new
park—Hurricane Harbor Oaxtepec Mexico—to the Six Flags family as we
build on our commitment to deliver world-class entertainment for guests
of all ages at every park, every year.”

In 2017, coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain, Six Flags Great Adventure,
and as part of its 50th Anniversary celebration – Six Flags Over Georgia:

  • The award-winning JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis. This
    multi-sensory dark ride features the most sophisticated technology
    available, completely immersing riders in a video gaming world. Guests
    become members of the JUSTICE LEAGUE Reserve Team and battle alongside
    Lex Luthor, The Joker and his henchmen to save Metropolis. The Joker’s
    partner in crime, Harley Quinn, will join the band of villains during
    this epic battle at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Coming to Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags Great America and Six Flags
New England:

  • The Joker Named among the Top 10 most anticipated new
    roller coasters by USA TODAY and FOX News, this thrilling
    roller coaster is set to wreak havoc in 2017. After being lifted
    straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, riders flip head-over-heels at
    least six times along the weightless journey. Thrill seekers will
    experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane, with
    unexpected drops as they tumble from one level to the next. The wing
    seats amp up the pandemonium since riders will experience all of this
    chaos with no track above or below — just the sky, ground and plenty
    of sinister thrills.

Coming to Six Flags America:

  • WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth – An extreme swing ride that
    spins guests in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 miles per hour atop a
    24-story tower. Guests sit two across in open-air swings as they climb
    to the top of the tower while spinning round and round, high above the
    beautiful Maryland and D.C. landscape.

Coming to La Ronde and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom:

  • A massive pendulum-shaped thrill ride that swings 40 guests back and
    forth at 70 miles per hour, while rotating counterclockwise and
    climbing higher and higher to 147 feet in the air. This exciting
    attraction will bear the name Titan at La Ronde and will be
    known as WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth at Six Flags Discovery

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, Six Flags Fiesta Texas

  • Thunder Rapids – North America’s first rocket blast water
    coaster. This state-of-the-art attraction is part roller coaster, part
    water slide, featuring a custom-designed inline raft and new water jet
    propulsion technology for lightning-fast uphill speeds and
    adrenaline-pumping drops. Guests will also encounter four high-banked
    flying saucer turns throughout the 942-foot long structure. The ride’s
    advanced loading system design allows guests to quickly and easily
    board their vehicle at ground level from a moving station, eliminating
    the need to carry a tube. Also on tap for the 2017 season—a colorful,
    new Mardi Gras Festival, featuring 10 authentic New Orleans
    style parade floats, Mardi Gras themed food, merchandise and beautiful
    park décor. The Mardi Gras Festival takes place from March 24
    through April 30.

Get ready for thrilling, spinning fun at Six Flags St. Louis:

  • Spinsanity – This high-flying attraction brings a unique
    level of thrill as the massive disc spins first one direction and then
    another, while swinging from side-to-side. Forty guests sit on
    motorcycle-style seats facing outward as the disc flies along the
    51-foot high half-pipe track all while whirling around at 14
    revolutions per minute. Spinsanity is the first-of-its-kind
    attraction at Six Flags St. Louis.

Coming to The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom:

  • Summer just got Bigger, Better and Wetter with the introduction
    of the all-new Bonzai Pipelines dueling water slides. The new
    attraction will feature a pair of twisting body slides with impressive
    heights, thrilling speeds and nearly 300 feet of pure splashing fun. A
    perfect way to beat the heat for thrill seekers and families alike,
    the slides will be located in the upper portion of Splashwater
    Kingdom. Bonzai Pipelines will be the water park’s 13th
    attraction and its first body slide tower.

Coming to Six Flags Mexico:

  • The New Revolution, North America’s first fully-integrated
    Virtual Reality (VR) roller coaster makes its Six Flags Mexico debut.
    Riders don Samsung Gear VR headsets, for a multi-dimensional virtual
    coaster experience. High-definition imagery and storytelling syncs
    with the unique track configuration of the Medusa Steel Coaster
    creating a one-of-a-kind seamless “real world” to “virtual world”
    thrill ride experience. Riders now become co-pilots seated in the
    cockpit of a true-to-life fighter jet, flying through a futuristic
    city in a battle to protect the planet against alien invaders, all
    while racing along the 3,300 feet of twisting, turning, looping
    coaster track. Six Flags Mexico guests will also be treated to the new Mardi
    Gras Festival,
    from March 17 to May 1, featuring authentic New
    Orleans style parade floats, complemented with delicious, traditional
    carnival food and merchandise along with colorful park décor.

Joining the proud Six Flags family of iconic theme and water parks:

  • Hurricane Harbor Oaxtepec Mexico in the beautiful state of
    Morelos. This tropical oasis will offer families a welcome summer
    retreat. The 67-acre park will feature an innovative new hybrid
    waterslide, a multi-level water play structure, a wave pool and a
    tranquil lazy river, among numerous other fun water attractions all
    set among a lush, inviting landscape. Hurricane Harbor Oaxtepec will
    be Six Flags’ 19th park, and is scheduled to open in
    February 2017.

This fall, Six Flags thrills continue with the biggest Halloween event
on the planet—Fright Fest® featuring more ghouls, more haunted
mazes and more “things that go bump in the night” than ever
before. Among the many new haunts, a state-of-the-art scare zone, Suicide
Squad: The Six Flags Fright Fest Experience
. This new featured
section will transform the DC UNIVERSE area at Six Flags Magic Mountain
into DC Midway City, where some of the “Worst Heroes Ever” from the film Suicide
will be roaming the streets. State-of-the-art digital imagery
and fiery special effects will create an inferno as buildings burst into
flames and creatures attack from every angle. Also part of this year’s
Fright Fest at eight parks, guests can experience the next evolution of
virtual reality with Rage of the Gargoyles, a chilling,
futuristic battle between good and evil featuring the first-ever fully
interactive roller coaster gaming experience. Riders, wearing Samsung
Gear VR headsets, are pilots seated in the cockpit of an Apache-style
helicopter, trying to fight off an army of terrorizing blood-thirsty
gargoyles. This groundbreaking VR coaster gaming experience is
controlled through head movements, allowing riders to keep their hands
on the lap bar as they shoot at moving targets.

Then later this year, Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags America join
seven other Six Flags parks by ringing in the holidays with Holiday
in the Park
®—a time-honored Six Flags tradition
featuring a winter wonderland of all the beloved sights and sounds of
the season, yummy holiday cuisine along with guest favorite rides and
attractions set against the backdrop of millions of twinkling lights.
