Tomorrow is "Six Flags Announcements" day. We will be posting the announcement as soon as the materials are available to us.
PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY LINKS OR IMAGES TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT BEFORE TPR DOES!
Anyone who does this will be banned forever from Theme Park Review.
Let me explain...
Posting the new ride information before we can do it actually creates MORE WORK for us as most of the time people who come on our forum and post info about a new ride will do a crappy job of it and then we have to not only do the work we are going to do to make a proper post about the new ride, but also clean up the garbage posts that people make.
No one here will get any extra points or look any "cooler" for being "first" to post the information. We aren't about being first we are about having good quality content. Please respect that. Thank you.

New Record Breaking Coaster to Debut at Six Flags Great America World’s Largest Loop Coaster Coming in 2018
GURNEE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Six Flags Great America, the Thrill Capital of the Midwest, has an announcement of epic proportions. Coming in 2018 is the world’s largest loop coaster. This world-record breaking attraction will take riders forward and backward on a gigantic loop before suspending them completely upside down for plenty of wicked hang-time.
“Six Flags continues to prove that innovation is in our DNA, and we are thrilled to introduce yet another world-record breaking coaster to our impressive arsenal of thrill rides,” said Park President Hank Salemi. “Standing at 100 feet tall, this is an experience our guests cannot get anywhere else on the planet. With the multiple inversions and record hang-time, this new coaster packs a punch and is going to be one of our most intense attractions.”
This ride will have riders traveling in unique “face-off” seating. Thrill seekers will go through a whirlwind series of 360° revolutions suspended upside down for the most insane, inverted hang-time of any coaster in the park before reeling down in the opposite direction.
World’s largest coaster of its kind; 100 feet tall; 360 degree revolutions with multiple inversions; 32 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated back-to-back and face-to-face; Inverted hang-time with riders suspended upside down for extended times; and The park’s 16th coaster.

Not sure if I'm laughing at the addition, or the addition's name, or the addition's lack of a name, but I find this to be the most hilarious of SF's announcements this morning!
Honestly, the addition, for what it is, is actually kind of cool, being the largest of its kind. But WTF with the name situation??? It's almost as if (like I mentioned in the SFOT thread) they accidentally gave the wrong name to their new flat there, and that Harley Quinn name was supposed to go on THIS! Oh well... What's works in China, can work in Chicago, right?

By making this larger, at least it does separate itself a little more than the versions that you see at carnivals. While often made fun of for now being a coaster by us, the smaller versions are pretty fun rides so I'm sure this will be the same. These give crazy hangtime.
