The 13 Best Rides at Six Flags Great America

01of 13

Goliath

When it opened in 2014, Six Flags billed Goliath as the world’s tallest, fastest, and steepest wooden roller coaster. It’s all true—except Goliath is unlike most wooden coasters (such as Great America’s own Viper and American Eagle). It uses a modified steel “Topper” track that completely covers the stacks of wood along its track. The innovative track allows the coaster to include inversions and deliver a largely smooth ride (two things not generally associated with woodies).

Goliath is so good, we added it to oiur list of North America’s top 10 best wooden coasters. Read TripSavvy’s full review of Goliath at Six Flags Great America.

Ride rating: 4 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Modified wooden with inversions
  • Height: 165 feet
  • First drop: 180 feet
  • Top speed: 72 mph
    Goliath is one of the top 10 fastest wooden roller coasters.
  • Maximum vertical angle: 85 degrees
  • Track length: 3,100 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 48 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: Rocky Mountain Construction

Continue to 2 of 13 below.

X Flight

Coming in just a bit behind Goliath is this wonderful wing coaster, in which the seats are placed on either side of the track or the “wings” of the train. There are a few similar rides now, but when X Flight debuted at Six Flags Great America in 2012, it was the first of its kind in the U.S.

The ride is quite smooth. While it provides virtually no negative-G-force airtime, X Flight pours on the positive Gs. In fact, the positive Gs crushed our over-the-shoulder restraint so much, they ratcheted them down another notch mid-ride and made the rest of the ride quite snug.

Wing coasters are gimmicky, but X Flight is heck of a lot of fun. Like most wing rides, the layout includes a “keyhole,” a narrow opening placed along the course through with the extra-wide trains pass. Made to look like a tall, thin air traffic control tower, the trains race toward it as if hellbent on a collision. At the last possible moment, the train rotates 90 degrees and barely squeezes through the slit in the tower. It’s a hoot.

Ride rating: 4 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Wing
  • Height: 120 feet
  • Top speed: 55 mph
  • Track length: 3000 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 54 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: Bolliger & Mabillard

Justice League: Battle for Metropolis

The only non-coaster ride on the list, Justice League: Battle for Metropolis is a sophisticated 4D dark ride that is on par with some of the best Disney and Universal rides. Like Universal's Spider-Man ride, it features roving motion base vehicles that move in sync with projected action. Unlike Universal's ride, it also includes blasters and interactive game play. There are multiple Justice League rides at Six Flags parks. Read our review of the attraction.

Ride rating: 4 out of 5 stars

  • Type of attraction: Dark ride
  • Minimum height requirement: 42 inches with adult
  • Ride manufacturer: Sally Rides

Continue to 4 of 13 below.

Maxx Force

Opened in 2019, the wild thrill machine broke three records. It delivers the fastest launch of any coaster in North America. Maxx Force doesn’t register the fastest speed (although it is blindingly fast), but it reaches its top speed in record time. Using a compressed air launch, it goes from 0 to 78 mph in less than two seconds. Yowza!

For one of its elements, it sends passengers upside down while hurtling along at 60 mph. That makes it the fastest inversion on any coaster anywhere. And at 175 feet, Maxx Force delivers the tallest double-inversion of any coaster.

  • Type of coaster: Compressed air launch steel 
  • Height: 175 feet
  • Top speed: 78 mph
  • Ride manufacturer: S&S Sansei

Continue to 5 of 13 below.

05of 13

Vertical Velocity

There are similar rides at other parks, including Cedar Point. They are all mighty beasts. Unlike more traditional coasters, Vertical Velocity foregoes a lift hill and uses magnetic motors to launch and propel it. As a shuttle coaster, it races forwards and backwards on a disconnected track.

The 28-passenger train screams forward out of the station up one tower of the U-shaped track. Vertical Velocity hangs for a few moments, releases backwards through the station (creating a wicked burst of wind for guests near the front of the line), and gets a second dose of magnetically induced booster power to propel it even higher up the second tower, which includes a spiral. When riders stop at the top of the second tower, they face 90 degrees down and experience a nice pop of airtime while they hang suspended. The cycle repeats a couple more times before slowing and stopping.

It’s another gimmicky ride, but it offers intense bursts of adrenaline-pumping thrills. Vertical Velocity is not for the faint-hearted.

Note that because it is a shuttle coaster and uses one train (and is in high demand as one of the park’s featured rides), Vertical Velocity often has long lines. If you are facing long lines at the ride and at the park in general, you may want to consider purchasing the premium line management add-on. Read more in our article, "Six Flags Flash Pass - Is Skipping Lines Worth the Cost?"

Ride rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Impulse
  • Height: 185 feet
  • Top speed: 70 mph
  • Track length: 630 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 54 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: Intamin AG

Continue to 6 of 13 below.

06of 13

Superman: Ultimate Flight

Another gimmicky, but fun ride, the seats on Superman: Ultimate Flight tilt forward 90 degrees so that passengers are facing the ground before they leave the station. This positions riders in “flying” mode. As the trains maneuver through loops and other inversions, they can stretch their arms out superhero-style to fly through the air.

Read more in our review of the essentially identical Superman: Ultimate Flight at Six Flags Great Adventure.

Ride rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Flying
  • Height: 106 feet
  • Top speed: 51 mph
  • Track length: 2,798 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 54 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: Bolliger & Mabillard

Continue to 7 of 13 below.

07of 13

Batman: The Ride

There are a bunch of identical coasters at other parks, most of which are also called Batman: The Ride. But the first one debuted at Six Flags Great America in 1992. It is also the world's first inverted coaster in which the trains hang beneath the track.

It’s not particularly tall or fast compared to other behemoths. But, with its tight inversions, including a signature teardrop-shaped loop, Batman imparts bone-crunching positive G-forces.

Ride rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Inverted
  • Height: 100 feet
  • Top speed: 50 mph
  • Track length: 2,700 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 54 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: Bolliger & Mabillard

Raging Bull

Oh how we wanted to love Raging Bull. Manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, the Swiss makers of incredible hypercoasters such as Nitro and Apollo's Chariot (which we consider to be among the top 10 best steel roller coasters in North America), we had high hopes. Oh how disappointed we were.

After clicking up the long lift hill, Raging Bull delivered a wonderful 208-foot first drop. Raging into the first hill following the drop, a trim brake (the bane of coaster fans) sucked all the life out of the ride. Instead of soaring up for an expected huge pop of airtime, there was…nothing. What is the sense of having a hypercoaster, which is designed for speed and airtime, and neutering it? The trim brakes slowed it down and prevented any negative-G moments. That’s, um, bull.

The rest of the ride, while smooth, was also lacking any airtime. To be fair, our first ride was in the back of the train. When we re-rode it in the second row, there were some minor out-of-seat moments, but nothing like the major-league, gravity-defying, mind-blowing airtime that coasters such as Apollo's Chariot provide. Hey, Six Flags and B&M: Do what needs to be done to remove the trim brakes and restore Raging Bull to its intended glory.

Ride rating: 3 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Hypercoaster
  • Height: 202 feet
  • Top speed: 73 mph
  • Track length: 5057 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 54 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: Bolliger & Mabillard

Continue to 9 of 13 below.

The Joker Free Fly Coaster

The Joker is a "4D Free-Fly" coaster. Its seats sit on either side of the track (like the “wing” coaster, X Flight) and randomly spin forwards and backwards (in the “fourth dimension”) as the train runs along a zig-zagging ribbon of track. The ride is similar to other coasters at other Six Flags parks, all of which offer especially disorienting ride experiences.

Ride rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Wing and Free-Fly
  • Height: 120 feet
  • Top speed: 38 mph
  • Track length: 1,019 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 48 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: S&S Sansei Technologies

Continue to 10 of 13 below.

Tsunami Surge

Located at the adjacent Hurricane Harbor Water Park (which requires a separate admission for ticket holders, but is included for season pass holders and Six Flags members), Tsunami Surge will take the record for the world’s tallest water coaster when it debuts in 2021. Three passengers at a time pile into rafts and get blasted uphill by powerful water jets three times during the course of the ride. The water coaster also delivers five drops, five hairpin turns, and groovy “AquaLucent” visual effects that riders experience in the enclosed tube sections.

  • Type of ride: Uphill water coaster
  • Height: 86 feet (tallest in the world at its debut)
  • Top speed: 28 mph

Continue to 11 of 13 below.

11of 13

Whizzer

This rare coaster uses an electric spiral lift to power the train up to the top of the track. The fairly tame ride has a gentle first drop. It features plenty of banked helices, but no inversions. The old-school coaster is among the original rides that debuted on the park’s opening day in 1976. It’s plenty of fun and great for younger kids.

Ride rating: 3 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Steel
  • Height: 70 feet
  • Top speed: 42 mph
  • Track length: 3100 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 36 inches with adult or 42 inches alone
  • Ride manufacturer: Schwarzkopf

Continue to 12 of 13 below.

Little Dipper

Originally opened in 1950 at Illinois’ (now defunct) Kiddieland, Six Flags Great America rescued and moved Little Dipper to its park in 2010. The delightful little ride is considered a kiddie coaster, but this is no impersonal, off-the-shelf dragon coaster. It is a custom-designed ride with a figure-eight layout that reeks of nostalgia. The 50s-style lettering of the ride’s logo and the white lattice structure transports passengers back to post-WWII America. It’s a great gateway coaster for young children.

Ride rating: 3 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Wooden
  • Height: 30 feet
  • Track length: 700 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 36 inches with adult or 42 inches alone
  • Ride manufacturer: Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc.

Continue to 13 of 13 below.

Viper

Viper is another Great America coaster for which we had great expectations before we visited the park. It has a good reputation, and some coaster fans consider it among the best woodies. At one time, it may have been an exemplary ride, but sadly, not when we gave it a go.

It was excessively rough (although not painfully rough like another Great America coaster that has not aged well, American Eagle) and offered little in the way of airtime. Modeled after Coney Island’s legendary Cyclone, Viper has all of that ride’s gritty brutality with none of its charm.

It would seem to be an ideal candidate for an Iron Horse makeover by Rocky Mountain Construction, the company that built the park’s Goliath. In addition to designing and building coasters from the ground up, RMC restores tired, old wooden coasters by adding an innovative steel track, or “hybrid coasters.”

Ride rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

  • Type of coaster: Wooden Cyclone
  • Height: 100 feet
  • Top speed: 48 mph
  • Track length: 3458 feet
  • Minimum height requirement: 48 inches
  • Ride manufacturer: Six Flags Theme Parks, Inc.

Which Theme Parks Have the Rights To Which Superheroes?

My 4-year-old nephew recently went nuts over the release of the motion picture “Captain America: Civil War.” In case you haven’t seen it, it has Spider-Man in it. Imagine his surprise when we went to Universal Orlando and saw Captain America, AND Spider-Man walking down the streets of Marvel Superhero Island. His first question? “Where’s Iron Man? Are you still mad at each other?”

ADVERTISING

Apparently it’s a question they get a lot, because they had an answer about him off saving the day. But it was a good question. Where IS Iron Man? For that matter where’s Hulk, Daredevil... and Batman and Superman for that matter? It’s become a great habit to see the movies on the big screen, then turn around and ride them at your local theme park. With superheroes, however, it gets a little convoluted, as many of your favorite theme parks have split up the superheroes, thanks to contracts, sales and new movie deals. We’ll break down just where you can expect to see some heroes, and why you won’t see others.

Way back in the ’90s a little theme park called Universal Orlando was trying to plan a huge new land. The company signed a deal with a comic book company named Marvel, and Marvel Superhero Island was born. Flash forward several years (and billions of dollars in movies) later, and Disney is now the proud owner of all that Marvel has created. It’s a match made in heaven, because you just know they’re going to line up their theme parks with Marvel rides and characters.  Well, almost.

According to the contract that Universal and Marvel had, theme parks East of the Mississippi River are not allowed to use Marvel for anything. That includes rides, characters and character breakfasts. This contract is good pretty much forever, or until Universal and Disney come to terms. While you may see Disney build entire lands at Disneyland in California, they are not allowed to build anything at Walt Disney World in Florida. However, there are loopholes, which we’ll get to later.

READ MORE: 6 Attractions For Superhero Fans

At the same time, Universal cannot build new attractions based on Marvel properties. Instead, you will see them revamp some of the existing rides. It happened with the Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, where the ride film was completely reshot in digital. It’s also the main reason why Incredible Hulk was just refitted with a new storyline, a new track, and new trains. The park cannot build new rides, but you can bet they can change old rides to fit in with the stories that do not match the movie timelines. It’s why now, instead of seeing Bruce Banner turn into the Hulk, you see General Ross trying to make new Hulk creatures.

It essentially appears to boil down to whatever is already at Universal is off limits to Disney. Also, whatever came before the Disney deal (such as the movies) is also off limits. While you might love the idea of Civil War in the parks, like my nephew did, you won’t see them unless Universal and Disney pull a huge deal like Disney struck with Sony that allowed Spider-Man to appear in Civil War.

In the movie world, Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man. Disney and Sony worked a deal to bring Marvel writers on the new Spider-Man films for a cut of Spider-Man profits. Disney already gets that with Universal, but there is rumored to be a deal that would allow both Disney and Universal to profit further. Rumors suggest that Disney and Universal are talking to mend the fences between the movie properties and the theme park properties. As it stands now, Universal still holds the film rights to Hulk, as well as the theme park rights. Disney is allegedly looking at making a deal that will allow them to use Hulk in movies outside of the Avengers, but not as a character or ride in Walt Disney World. They will be allowed to use characters that are not at Marvel SuperHero Island in the parks, they just won’t be able to use the Marvel name. That’s why rumors like Guardians of the Galaxy taking over Epcot are so strong.

Then there’s the X-Men, and that universe of characters. Disney doesn’t own the rights to those, Fox does. In theory, Disney could grant Universal permission to create attractions based on the comic versions of those characters, while Fox retains the movie rights. That would end the entire ban on new attractions at Universal’s Super Hero Island, and would give both parks the right to grow their audiences.

DC comics are a little less complicated. Their rights are owned by Six Flags. The comic versions of those characters can be used all over the world. The movie versions, however, cannot. Those versions of the characters are owned by Warner Brothers. You have seen versions of some of the characters before, such as the Dark Knight coaster, but that was before the big movie renaissance that happened.

However, here’s a loophole that could prove interesting down the line. Since Six Flags owns the rights to the comic versions of the characters, they are open to have those versions of the characters in the parks. What about the movies? Universal and Warner Brothers have an amazing relationship, especially since the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was so huge for both. It’s possible that we could see a partnership between Universal and DC Comics in the future for DC themed attractions in the Universal parks around the world, including Hollywood, Japan and Singapore. Keep in mind this is just speculation on our part, but anything is possible!

Superman - Ride Of Steel front seat on-ride HD POV Six Flags America

We interrupt today’s news of apocalyptic battles in the world of politics to talk for a moment about an upcoming apocalyptic battle in the far more comforting world of theme park superheroes. If things work out, 2021 will be the year in which theme park fans finally get to see the battle of Disney’s Spider-Man versus Universal’s Spider-Man.

Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure will anchor the new Avengers Campus land at Disney California Adventure, at some point after California clears major theme parks to reopen in the state. Once that attractions opens, fans will be able to see for themselves how it compares to the other Spider-Man ride in the United States, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure theme park.

More from Robert Niles

Typically, dedicated theme park fans have to travel abroad to see how different companies develop attractions around the same theme. Movie studios and publishers typically award licenses on a regional basis, which results in the Peanuts characters American fans are used to seeing at Knott’s Berry Farm and other Cedar Fair theme parks ending up at Universal Studios in Japan.

The differences can be stark. (No pun intended, Marvel fans.) The Sesame Street franchise that gets a collection of kiddie rides at the SeaWorld parks in the United States gets much more engaging dark rides at Universal Studios in Singapore and PortAventura in Spain. DC Comics get the Superman and Batman names slapped on roller coasters at Six Flags parks in the United States. But in Abu Dhabi, DC’s top two superheroes get richly detailed lands with multiple dark rides and shows at Warner Bros.’ indoor theme park there.

Universal got its Marvel rights before Disney bought the comic book company, and its Spider-Man ride is one of the world’s best, ranking in the top five globally in our annual reader poll on ThemeParkInsider.com. Using a motion-base ride system similar to Disneyland’s Indiana Jones ride and Universal Studios Hollywood’s Transformers, Orlando’s Spider-Man ride takes visitors on a wild journey through New York City in a Daily Bugle news van.

Disney would need to drop another attraction on the scale of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance to top Universal’s Spider-Man ride. (Fun fact for theme park trivia geeks: Scott Trowbridge, the Creative Portfolio Executive who oversaw Rise of the Resistance, also helped lead the creation of Universal’s Spider-Man ride.) But Disney is looking to win over fans by taking a different approach to Spider-Man.

In Orlando, fans are literally just along for the ride on Universal’s Spider-Man attraction. But Disney’s “Web Slingers” will give its fans much more to do. It’s an interactive ride, but without the guns on Buzz Lightyear or the pull strings on Toy Story Midway Mania. Riders will shoot virtual webs using their hand motions to trap rogue Spider-Bots.

It’s different but not unique technology, as Legoland’s Ninjago ride employs the same concept. But will Disney’s design magic be enough to satisfy fans who have experienced Universal’s masterpiece in Orlando? As a fan, I can’t wait to find out.

Superman – Ride of Steel

Steel roller coaster at various Six Flags parks

Superman – Ride of Steel is a steel roller coaster located at Six Flags America in Woodmore, Maryland. Ride of Steel is an identical roller coaster located at Six Flags Darien Lake in Darien, New York, which originally had the same name until the park opted to drop Superman from the title in 2006. Both hypercoasters were manufactured by Intamin and opened a year apart, beginning with the Darien Lake installation in May 1999. They are 208 feet (63 m) tall, feature a drop length of 205 feet (62 m), and reach a maximum speed of 73 mph (117 km/h). A roller coaster that opened at Six Flags New England in 2000, Superman the Ride, shares the same name, but it features a significantly different layout.

VR experience[edit]

On March 3, 2016, Six Flags announced that the ride would be one of several rides at various Six Flags parks to feature a VR system. Riders have the option of wearing a Samsung Gear VR headset, powered by Oculus to create a 360-degree, 3D experience while riding. It is themed to Superman saving a city from Lex Luthor's Lex Bots who are causing chaos with an anti-gravity ray. This theming will also come to the Superman: Krypton Coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Superman: The Ride at Six Flags New England.[1]

Ride layout[edit]

Once the train has been dispatched from the station it makes a winding, 180-degree turn. The train ascends 208 feet (63 m) up the lift hill and then drops 205 feet (62 m) at an angle of 68 degrees. The train reaches the maximum speed of 73 mph (117 km/h) before entering a sharp turn and the first airtime hill. A 540-degree helix follows, in addition to another smaller airtime hill. The finale involves a 500-degree helix and several more airtime hills before reaching the brake run and returning to the station.

Elements[edit]

  • 5 airtime hills (4 airtime hills and a twisted airtime hill)
  • 2 helixes (540 degree and 500 degree)

Accidents[edit]

  • On May 16, 1999, a passenger was thrown from the train at the Darien Lake installment on one of the final hills and suffered only minor injuries.[2]
  • On July 8, 2011, a handicapped Iraq War veteran on the Darien Lake installment riding in the front seat fell to his death.[3] State investigators faulted operator error as the cause of the accident and the ride was re-opened on July 22, 2011.[4] A common misconception about this accident is that an Iraq War veteran went to the park, and was told he could ride all of the rides by a park employee. He actually went to the ride, without asking anyone if he could ride. He was not height checked, and the ride operator failed to notice that he did not have two functioning legs. As a result, he was ejected from the ride.[5]

Long before Universal introduced Marvel Superhero Island in their Islands of Adventure theme park and before Disney purchased Marvel Comics, some of the most popular Marvel characters found homes in amusement parks and theme parks around the country including Great Adventure.

    For the 1977 season, the one year old Kiddie Kingdom section of Great Adventure became "Marvel's Kiddie Kingdom". Though no new attractions were introduced as part of this change and it seems to have been in name only, new costumed characters were introduced, bringing the first super hero costumed characters to Great Adventure, long before the arrival of the DC Comics Justice Characters in the 1990's.

Three new characters arrived with the introduction of Spider-Man, Captain America and Ms. Marvel. The three crime fighters wore traditional skin tight costumes and roamed the park for pictures with guests. The Marvel superheroes at Great Adventure lasted for just one season.        SPIDER-MAN 
Spider-Man was created by legendary comic artist Stan Lee in 1962, and in the mid 1970's was featured in sketches on the popular PBS series The Electric Company after a run as a cartoon series in the late 1960's and early 1970's.       Wearing a skin tight bodysuit and mask, Spider-Man was very athletic looking, and as evidenced by some of these pictures, he was able to show off his athletic abilities while running around the park.                CAPTAIN AMERICA
As one of Marvel's oldest super heroes, Captain America dates back to 1941 and was a wartime creation, fighting the axis powers.        Captain America was another of the Marvel characters introduced at Great Adventure in 1977. Like Spider-Man, he wore the requisite skin tight costume requiring a performer in top physical condition, but unlike Spider-Man, Captain America's face was visible, requiring an actor with superhero looks.           MS. MARVEL
Ms. Marvel was originally introduced in 1968, but was relaunched in January of 1977 most likely in response to the popularity of the Wonder Woman television series as well as in response to the women's-lib movement of the time, trying to appeal to a new generation of girls interested in comic books.       Ms. Marvel may have been the least known of the three Marvel characters introduced at Great Adventure, but with her tight costume may have been the most popular among some of the park's guests. Together and separately, they could be seen striking heroic poses for guests throughout the park as well as inside Kiddie Kingdom throughout the 1977 season.

In late 1977, Great Adventure was acquired by Six Flags and whatever contract the park had with Marvel Comics came to an end.

Doesn't Cartoon Network carry Spiderman cartoons? If they do, that's probably the round-about way that SF got rights to it. At SFWoA, some of the games carry Scooby Doo and other Hanna-Barbara characters through a Cartoon Network license.

SFGAm must have something worked out to carry Spiderman and other items. You can check the labels on the Spiderman merchandise to see if it has Six Flags written on it(I don't think it will be there, though). There are other items that don't seem to fit the D.C. Comics/Looney Tunes theme at SFGAm, including Sesame Street characters, Spongebob Squarepants, Simpsons, Incredible Hulk, Disney-like characters and others.

Except, I noticed Totally Tweety (which sold absolutely nothing Tweety when I was at the park yesterday) at SFA was selling Spiderman sports drinks yesterday....

Jeff's avatarMerchandise is often licensed seperately, which is why you have SpongeBob stuff (which is Viacom, i.e., Paramount) all over the place as well.

I'm not sure if a rollercoaster/thrill ride would fall under the 'merchandise' category. Just like you won't find a Batman-themed ride at Universal, you probably won't find a Spiderman-themed ride at Six Flags. I believe SF has the rights to DC-themed rides and Universal has the rights to Marvel-themed rides.

I wasn't asking that. I was asking if a Six Flags can name a ride after Spider Man.
