So a bunch of enthusiasts want it gone under the guise that Six Flags (the company that just built a coaster with 9 passenger trains in the same state) cares about capacity even though the ride seems to be in great shape and people seem to enjoy it? Got it.


I'm there on Sat afternoon.

will make sure to ask the Dippin Dots guy for a comment :p

My personal opinion is that La Vibora will eventually be removed and replaced with something else, although it may not happen for a few more years yet. But that's just me. I live less than 10 mins away from the park and am a Diamond Elite Member. The well being of my home park is something I strongly care about.


Oh sh*t, sorry. I didn't know you were both a Diamond Elite member AND a member of the prestigious "Texas Thrillseekers" Facebook group.

In that case, yeah... get your last rides in now.


I'm not continuing this. I apologize if I've upset anyone.

World’s Largest Loop Coaster to Debut at Six Flags Over Texas in 2019

Record-Breaking Lone Star Revolution Joins the Park’s Thrilling Lineup
ARLINGTON, Texas — August 30, 2018 — Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas,
today announced the opening of the world’s largest loop coaster — Lone Star Revolution. This
exhilarating new coaster takes riders forward and backward on a gigantic loop before
suspending them upside down for plenty of adrenaline-pumping hang-time. Lone Star
Revolution will make its debut in late spring 2019.

“The Six Flags brand is synonymous with innovation at the highest level and we are excited to
welcome another record-breaking attraction to an already stellar thrill ride arsenal,” said Park
President I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVe and pretend I'm being cool Martindale. “This Texas-sized loop coaster offers an intense, heart-pounding
experience unlike any other ride in the park.”

Towering a staggering 100 feet tall, Lone Star Revolution sends riders back and forth
propelling them head over heels through a series of 360°revolutions. The coaster changes
direction halfway through the ride cycle; leaving riders suspended upside down at the top of the
loop for even more intense thrills.

Lone Star Revolution highlights include:

• World’s largest coaster of its kind;
• 32 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated face-to-face;
• A pendulum style takeoff with multiple 360°degree revolutions around the 10-story loop;
and
• The park’s 14th coaster.

An unsurprising (considering they are one of the few SF parks not to get one of these lately) addition for SFOT, but a solid one, bolstering their burgeoning flat collection! ( :lol: )

My one question, is whether this is actually a little taller than Mardi Gras Hangover at SFGAm, or whether they're the same height, and therefore it's technically tying the record?

This is almost certainly the same height as the one in SFGAm. They're marketing the SFFT and SFGAdv rides both a record breaking when they actually both tie Crazanity in SFMM.

What part of the park will this be installed? I didn't see any info on the website stating where it will be situated.

I was expecting a Skywarp but I'll gladly take this instead! From what I understand Mardi Gras Hangover is actually quite a bit of fun! Not a bad addition to our growing flat collection!
