WONDER WOMAN Golden Lasso Coaster A Thrilling New Coaster Concept Premiering at Six Flags Fiesta Texas Spring 2018
World’s First Single Rail Coaster will complete the DC Super Hero Trilogy of Rides
Six Flags Fiesta Texas in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, today unveiled plans to debut the world’s first-ever Wonder Woman™ themed roller coaster—WONDER WOMAN™ Golden Lasso Coaster. With a 90-degree drop, this technological marvel also features a first-of-its-kind single I-beam rail with riders seated single file. This unique new design gives riders an open-air, unobstructed view as they twist and turn above the stunning 100-feet quarry walls.
“Six Flags continues to lead the industry in introducing innovative coasters, rides and attractions and Fiesta Texas boasts a number of technological firsts including the world’s largest rocket blast water coaster—Thunder Rapids; the country’s first tower drop virtual reality attraction—Drop of Doom, and BATMAN: The Ride 4D Free Fly Coaster. Continuing that tradition, WONDER WOMAN™ Golden Lasso Coaster joins her fellow DC Super Heroes as the first-ever single rail streamline designed coaster,” said Park President Jeffrey Siebert.
WONDER WOMAN™ Golden Lasso Coaster features three single seat trains (in themed colors of red, yellow and blue) that race along a slender yellow track supported by massive red supports. As guests enter the ride queue, they will be greeted by a spectacular likeness of Wonder Woman herself and immersed in the story of her life and how she obtained her super powers. Guests will be surrounded by tropical landscaping, Greek architecture, and even Steve Trevor’s crashed plane. After boarding their streamlined ride vehicle, the incredible sensory journey begins, as riders are called upon to emulate Wonder Woman’s determination to improve the world and fight the forces of corruption and evil. Just as Wonder Woman displays Super Hero strength, agility and combat skills, riders will experience the same heroic feats as they race through a one-of-a-kind 90-degree drop, overbanked wave turn, zero-g roll and a steep uphill spiral.
As the first of its kind in the world, WONDER WOMAN™ Golden Lasso Coaster features:
• The world’s first, one-of-a-kind single-rail coaster on a visually impressive I-beam no wider than 15.5 inches;
• A spectacular straight-down 90-degree drop;
• Two airtime hills, one 180-degree stall, a zero-g roll, and overbanked turns;
• Three vehicles with eight single-file, in-line passenger seats;
• A moving loading station to expedite entering and exiting the ride; and
• A Princess Diana in Themyscira visual storyline throughout the queue line featuring Greco-Greek architecture, Wonder Woman likenesses and Steve Trevor’s crashed plane.
