Six Flags announces new ride 'The Joker'

- Six Flags Great America in Gurnee has announced an insane new ride coming in 2017, called ‘The Joker.’

“We are excited to continue our partnership with the DC brand as it continues to resonate well with our guests. The Joker is undeniably one of the greatest Super-Villains of all time,” Hank Salemi, Six Flags Great America park president, said in a statement. “This free-fly coaster will perfectly capture the essence of the warped and unpredictable nature of The Joker. It will take our park to the next level of thrills.”

After being lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, the free-fly coaster will wreak havoc as riders flip head-over-heels at least six times along the weightless journey, according to the statement.

The Joker is expected to unleash total mayhem beginning in the spring of 2017. It will be located in the Yankee Harbor section next to ‘Batman The Ride’ roller coaster.
