Joker is a S&S Worldwide “Free Spin” coaster. According to S&S’s website, the 4D Free Spin coaster model “utilizes magnetic technology to induce and control spinning” and features “three layers of vertically stacked track feature speed bumps and two beyond vertical raven drops.”

“Not only does The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster utilize the latest innovative technology, it is highly interactive and will deliver something new for every rider,” said Six Flags New England park president John Winkler.

“This is a great complement to our existing ride offerings and should be quite a hit with thrill-seekers. The unpredictable tumbling will add a new element as riders travel along the plunging and swirling track,” said Park President John Winkler.

According to the park’s website:

The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster features a massive and twisting track frame, in which ride vehicles begin their journey by traveling up a 120-foot elevator-type lift before being released for their highly unusual sensory journey – including two beyond-vertical free falls, in addition to four to eight head-over-heels flips. The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster is one of the most exciting thrill rides in the park’s history.

Six Flags New England’s Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster will feature:

  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring four to eight smooth head-over-heels free-fly flips providing guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track;
  • A 4D wing coaster that seats up to eight and has riders “face their fears” by allowing them to physically face each other as they tumble head-over-heels;
  • A 120-foot tall hill that is ascended by an elevator-style lift straight up;
  • Two beyond 90-degree raven drops giving the sensation of free-falling; and
  • Five vehicles with eight passengers each.
