Dec. 6, 2006 – Six Flags Fiesta Texas announced today a new family-style attraction planned for 2007 that will leave riders spinning with delight. The new addition, Tony Hawk’s Big Spin, defies gravity just like Tony Hawk does with acrobatic spins on his skateboard; this coaster takes the spin to a whole new level as it takes the traditional roller coaster experience of lifts, drops and turns, and throws in a whole new twist.

Available to park guests when Fiesta Texas re-opens in March of 2007, Tony Hawk’s Big Spin will be visually impressive, designed to appear as a giant red-and-black skatepark. The ride offers a full extreme sports experience, with monitors in the queue lines displaying highlights of the history of action sports; a large spinning Tony Hawk figure crowning the ride; and Tony Hawk’s Big Spin merchandise available at the ride exit.

“When Tony Hawk appeared here at Six Flags Fiesta Texas last July, his amazing talents made quite an impression on our guests,” said Martin Bozer, vice-president/general manager of Six Flags Fiesta Texas. “We’re delighted that soon we’ll be able to offer a sampling of those thrills everyday with a new family inclusive coaster, Tony Hawk’s Big Spin.”

“After receiving such a great response to our Boom Boom HuckJam Tour at several Six Flags parks earlier this year, I’m honored and excited to be part of this opportunity. On the Big Spin, riders will be able to experience their own spinning aerial moves whenever they choose,” added skateboarding legend Tony Hawk.

Riding Tony Hawk’s Big Spin, four people will sit facing each other in the coaster car as it travels up, down, and around the breathtaking curves of the quarter-mile track – all while spinning its riders round and round! The spinning coaster cars allow each ride to take on a totally different experience depending on the weight distribution of the passengers in the car.

Families with younger children will find the ride’s height requirement especially enticing. Tony Hawk’s Big Spin is suitable for kids who are at least 42” tall to ride with an accompanying adult, while kids 47” and taller can ride by themselves.

With an exciting theme inspired by skateboarding’s most dynamic star and standing at about 53-feet high, Tony Hawk’s Big Spin is a sight to see with a black base that contrasts dramatically with the dynamic red coaster tracks.

Tony Hawk’s Big Spin will sit at the far end of the Fiesta Bay Boardwalk area, a portion of which is currently closed off in anticipation for this thrilling ride.

In addition to this brand new spinning coaster, a fresh new look is in the works for the Fiesta Bay Boardwalk including all new planks for the boardwalk’s deck and a convenient and tasty new dining option.

Looks really similar to Mr. 6's but with some theming. Hopefully SFStL's will be just as kool. I wonder when they are going to announce theirs......?

Ugh, more cardboard cutouts.

Still, I'm not saying it won't be a good ride, it's just so typical SF.

Tony Hawk has sold his soul to the devil! Is there anything out there that doesn't have his name on it!?!?

^^^^Hooray, I'm going to travel to a SFFT just to wait 2 hours for a new clone I can ride in my homestate, yay :rolleyes:! The funny thing is that I was supossed to ride MSP, but it broke down, and I went in 2005, its opening year. All I can say is that Sharpio sucks.

Looks very similar to Mr. 6s. Hoping for something original. Oh well. I wasnt planning on driving down to San Antonio unless it was a hyper, or something 100+ feet. They need a big roller coaster too to balance it out. SFOT needs a new coaster too...last was Titan 2001.

Umm, yeah why? He added a family ride for a family oriented park. Just cause it's a clone means nothing, it's a great addition for this park. Granted the name and theme is quite retarded since it'll be dated once Tony Hawk's resurgence is done .. oh wait ... it already is.
