Prepare for Texas-sized thrills!
If you’re the kind of thrill-seeker who finds themselves drawn to Six Flags Over Texas every summer to get your fix, the park wants you to know there will be a “devilish” new attraction waiting for you this year. El Diablo!
Originally announced in the fall of 2018 as “Lone Star Revolution,” the park’s 14th coaster has been re-imagined with a more sinister moniker — El Diablo.
The ride is 100 feet tall and will boast a fiery red and orange theme and send 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.
A total of 32 passengers will fit on the ride with a unique ‘face-off’ style seating. This allows riders to sit across from one another to see each others reactions.
The ride will be located in the Spain section of the park.
“The Six Flags brand is synonymous with innovation at the highest level and we are excited to welcome another record-breaking attraction,” said Park President Steve Martindale. “This super-sized loop coaster features six inversions and the most hang-time of any coaster in the park. El Diablo packs a wicked punch.”
Six Flags Over Texas will open its gates on Saturday, Feburary 23. El Diablo will not be available for guests until later in the spring.
