EUREKA, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Six Flags St. Louis, the Coaster Capital of Missouri, will heat things up in 2016 with the new Fireball. This looping thrill ride will give guests a pure adrenaline rush as they go forward, backward and upside down.
Fireball features a single loop that riders will travel back and forth in, pendulum style, as they build up speed to soar head over heels. Seated back to back, guests will rocket through a series of 360° revolutions stopping upside down for some insane hang time before reversing directions.
“This high-thrill attraction combines suspense and anticipation, and will be a hit with teens and families alike,” said Dave Roemer, park president. “With the forward and backward motion as well as the inverted hang-time, Fireball will deliver the kind of intense thrills our guests have come to expect from Six Flags St. Louis.”
- 7 stories tall;
- 24 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated back to back and face to face
- 360 degree revolutions;
- Inverted hang time with riders suspended upside down.
This new thriller will be located in the Illinois section of the park where the Rush Street Flyer currently sits. Fireball is set to open late spring 2016.
