The Joker: New England’s First 4D Free-Fly Coaster Coming to Six Flags New England

Innovative New Ride Offers Epic Thrills

AGAWAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags New England, the Coaster Capital of New England in partnership
with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, today
announced plans to add its 13th coaster to the park, The Joker:
4D Free Fly Coaster. This unique coaster experience will feature theming
based on the iconic Super-Villain The Joker and be located in the
park’s South End.


After being lifted straight up a 120-foot hill, this 4D Wing Coaster
challenges riders to “face their fears” as they flip head-over-heels
from four to eight times along the weightless, tumbling journey. Along
the way on this 4th dimension free-fly coaster, thrill
seekers experience exhilarating coaster hills and unexpected drops along
with an interactive ride experience, making it a different sensation
each time guests ride. The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster allows
adrenaline seekers to soar outside the confines of the track for an
all-new coaster riding experience.

“We are thrilled to launch our 13th coaster here at the
Coaster Capital of New England. Not only does The Joker: 4D Free
Fly Coaster utilize the latest innovative technology, it is highly
interactive and will deliver something new for every rider. This is a
great complement to our existing ride offerings and should be quite a
hit with thrill-seekers. The unpredictable tumbling will add a new
element as riders travel along the plunging and swirling track,” said
Park President John Winkler.

The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster features a massive and twisting
track frame, in which ride vehicles begin their journey by traveling up
a 120-foot elevator-type lift before being released for their highly
unusual sensory journey – including two beyond-vertical free falls, in
addition to four to eight head-over-heels flips. The Joker: 4D
Free Fly Coaster is one of the most exciting thrill rides in the park’s
history.

The unique construction of The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster
features:

  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring four to eight
    smooth head-over-heels free-fly flips providing guests the feeling of
    weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional
    track;
  • A 4D wing coaster that seats up to eight and has riders “face their
    fears” by allowing them to physically face each other as they tumble
    head-over-heels;
  • A 120-foot tall hill that is ascended by an elevator-style lift
    straight up;
  • Two beyond 90-degree raven drops giving the sensation of free-falling;
    and
  • Five vehicles with eight passengers each.
