It’s official. Coming in 2014, The Great Escape will introduce a high- flying, spinning adventure. The all-new Extreme Supernova will lift riders up 50 feet in the air and flip them head-over-heels for a wild, adrenaline-packed adventure. Supernova will feature impressive heights, astonishing speeds, heart-racing swings, unpredictable spins, and stomach-tightening flips. This new attraction will provide an adrenaline rush like no other and you won’t be able to tell which way is up in this giant pendulum.
You’ll take a seat with 15 other bold riders and load into the giant pendulum-shaped structure. Suspended from the axis above, you’ll face outward as the floor drops from below you. You’ll first complete several back and forth swings, high and low, elevating up near-vertically before flying through to the other side. The thrill ride plays on your anticipation as you wait for the next pivot that will flip you entirely upside down in a gut-wrenching inverted flip. The Extreme Supernova offers fantastic inverted views of the park and Splashwater Kingdom as you hang up in the air and twist upside down.
While the giant arm sways you, you’ll also be spinning in circles simultaneously, twisting around and around until you can’t see straight. The constant swinging and whirling will deliver maximum G-forces, high-flying sensations, and extreme dizziness.
The Extreme Supernova is set to debut in spring 2014 and will sit next to The Comet. Are you ready to take on this all-new spinning ride?
It hasn't appeared on their website yet, but their Facebook page refers to it as their newest offering, the Discovery Revolution. Given the picture used in TGE's promo is from the non-inverting version at Luna Park (moon shape visible on the right), I think this might be the one they are getting.
Six Flags Entertainment Corp. has purchased "remaining ownership interests" in Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Water Park, the company said Friday.
"We are thrilled to take ownership of this prime location," said John Odum, Six Flags senior vice president. "With more flexibility to invest in the property, we intend to continue providing world-class guest service and further enhance our all-encompassing resort experience."
A statement from the company did not disclose the sale price or who sold the interest in the property to Six Flags, facts that company spokeswoman Rebecca Close said were barred from public disclosure under a sales agreement.
The 200-suite lodge includes a 38,000-square-foot indoor water park.
The news release said "recent investments at the lodge include Klub Moose suites featuring unique children-sized log cabins, an interactive Kids Clubhouse and themed special events."
In December, the lodge will open 35 renovated "premium suites and (offer) exclusive concierge-inspired service."
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
I wonder if other Six Flags will add hotels as well. Clearly it must be doing well with the Premium Suites and Buyout.

I'd say it is doubtful. The Lake George area is unique in that many families go there on local vacations and not just for The Great Escape. I don't think any other SF parks in are "destination" areas like Lake George.
