The Joker Will Wreak Total Mayhem in 2017

Iconic DC Comics Super-Villain Mastermind Plots to Seize the Most
Insane Coaster in the History of Six Flags Over Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, and Warner Bros.
Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, announces the opening
of its 13th and most maniacal roller coaster to date, an
all-new free-fly coaster called, The Joker. Now home to the most
roller coasters in the Southwest, Six Flags Over Texas is proud to
welcome this wicked and chaotic thrill ride to reign supreme as the most
dynamic coaster in the GOTHAM CITY section of the park.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with the DC brand because it
resonates well with our guests, plus The Joker is undeniably one of the
greatest Super-Villains of all time,” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags
Over Texas park president. “The unpredictability and gravity-defying
somersaults on this award-winning, spinning vertical coaster is the
perfect addition to our already impressive coaster line-up.”

freestyle-coaster will wreak havoc as riders flip head-over-heels at

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 belowjust the sky, ground and
plenty of sinister thrills.

  • Massive, imposing, floating and twisting I-box track frame in a unique
    two-tone design;
  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring smooth
    head-over-heels free-fly flips providing guests the feeling of
    weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional

  • Face-off seats that allow riders to face each other as they tumble
  • A 120-foot-tall, 90-degree hill that is ascended by an elevator-style,
    chain link lift; and
  • Two beyond 90-degree “raven” drops giving the sensation of
