WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth Coming in 2017


Six Flags America Announces New WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth to Open in 2017

World’s most iconic Female Super Hero Namesake for Park’s Tallest New Ride!

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — September 1, 2016 — Six Flags America, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, announced today a new addition to its already stellar lineup of thrilling rides and attractions. WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth, a 242-feet tall, sky-high swing ride and the tallest new attraction at the Nation’s Capital of Thrills will open in 2017.

Based on the world’s most iconic female Super Hero, WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth is an extreme swing ride that spins guests in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 miles per hour atop a 24-story tower. With a capacity of thirty-two riders, guests sit two across in open-air swings as they climb to the top of the tower while spinning round and round, offering a breathtaking view while soaring high above the beautiful Maryland and D.C. landscape.

“We are thrilled to announce a new experience that will take our guests to new heights at Six Flags America,” said Rick Howarth, park president. “At 242 feet tall, WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth will be the tallest structure at Six Flags America and the first to feature the most famous heroine of all time.”

WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth will join SUPERMAN Ride of Steel, Batwing and JOKER’s Jinx in offering thrilling experiences based on the world famous DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains. The colossal tower will be visible from every location in the park and will become a new iconic symbol of thrilling fun for guests of all ages.

It's really interesting that they didn't go with the Skyscreamer name for this one.

Will this thing be 400ft plus, like the ones at SFOT and SFNE?

I ask dumb questions.

The guy in this form who said without breaking a promise this will be a big year for six flags broke a promise.

Fantastic news for SFA. It's about time that we start rebuilding our flat ride collection, and a Star Flier can never go wrong. It's honestly even better to see it named Wonder Woman, as that means Gotham City will be getting much deserved attention.

Annoying, impatient and needs to be kicked by a donkey.

It would've been cooler if we got an Endeavor, but this is still a decent addition.
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

The first pic looks to be the 400' version like the ones at SFOT and SFNE. The other pics all look to be the standard Fun Time Star Flyers. Also, that video appears to be showing the Texas Sky Screamer at SFOT.

Uh oh, are you the first one butt hurt? Not sure how spending over $100 million in capital on rides and attractions is not a big year but whatever dude. They got a star flyer, embrace it. :roll:
