Flash: Vertical Velocity, North America’s First Vekoma Super Boomerang, Coming to Six Flags Great Adventure in 2024
Six Flags Great Adventure will be opening North America’s first Vekoma Super Boomerang, The Flash: Vertical Velocity in 2024, the park’s 50th anniversary.
The new coaster will be located in the park’s “Movietown” section, and will flank the park’s entrance behind the Cyborg: Cyber Spin Tourbillon ride and next to the park’s Justice League: Battle for Metropolis Dark Ride.
According to the park:
Race to the sky with the Fastest Man Alive on THE FLASH™: Vertical Velocity, a super boomerang coaster featuring THE FLASH. This coaster is the first-of-its-kind in North America and only the second in the world, making it as unique as the iconic speedster who inspired it. Strap in and speed off aboard an intricately designed train inspired by THE FLASH’s suit in a race like no other. Experience micro gravity as you run upside down, almost 100 feet off the ground. Zoom through a 180-degree twisted drop followed by a Zero-G roll back to the vertical tower, reaching speeds of up to 59 miles per hour. The train pauses, and then, just like THE FLASH, you change directions on a dime and rush backwards along the track.
“This ground-breaking super coaster takes you on the most exciting run of your life, alongside a faster-than-light hero. Brace yourself for high-speed thrills as you rush along the track—both forward and backward—on an adventure that will leave even the bravest thrillseekers catching their breath.”
The world’s first Vekoma Super Boomerang, Cloud Shuttle at China’s Fantawild Wonderland, opened in July of 2023. According to RCDB, it has a track length of more than 1,400′, a height of 164′, and a top speed of 59 mph. Riders must be 48″ tall to ride.
Also in 2024, guests will be able to immerse themselves in an authentic African lodging experience at the new Savannah Sunset Resort & Spa. Set within the expansive 350-acre Wild Safari Park, guests will enjoy ultra-luxurious “glamping” tents, scenic vistas, spa services and VIP dining, all creating an unforgettable safari getaway.
