Six Flags Great America Building Maxx Force Launch Coaster in 2019

Six Flags Great America today announced plans to open Maxx Forced, a triple-record breaking launched steel coaster in 2019.

Maxx Force will be the fastest launch coaster in North America with the fastest inversion and highest double inversion of any roller coaster in the world.

“Six Flags reigns supreme for record-breaking, one-of-a-kind rides and world-class thrills,” said Six Flags Great America park president Hank Salemi.

“The new Maxx Force coaster is in a class all by itself, launching riders from 0 to 78 miles per hour in under two seconds. No other coaster in the country accelerates at that blistering speed.”

Maxx Force highlights include:

  • A unique air-powered launching system propelling guests forward at record speeds;
  • The world’s highest double inversion at 175 feet above the ground;
  • The fastest inversion on any roller coaster in the world with a 60 miles-per-hour zero-G roll;
  • Five high-speed inversions; and
  • One-of-a-kind custom coaster trains modeled after Formula One racing cars
  • Maxx Force will be the park’s 17th roller coaster and is scheduled to debut in summer 2019 in the Carousel Plaza area of the park.

    What a great looking ride! However, I find it a bit misleading to describe Maxx Force as the fastest launch roller coaster in North America—that would be Kingda Ka with a top speed of 128 miles per hour. Perhaps it would be more accurate to call it the fastest *accelerating* coaster.

    Totally agree Jonathan but that’s just where we’re at today. Every ride has to break some record for marketing purposes.

    It’s almost like six flags has a giant box with pieces of paper in it. Each of the pieces have some record written on it, and whatever record they pull out, they beat. Anyways, this ride was completely random, but an improvement from Mardi Gras Hangover. And anyways, it is at my home park, so I’m not complaining.

    I hate the colors. Looks greyscale.
