It's that time of year again! Late summer, the time when amusement parks start to announce their brand new rides for the next season! Today, Six Flags America in Maryland announces the state's first FLOORLESS coaster: Firebird!
Rising from the ashes of Apocalypse in 2019 (you can take your final rides on Sept. 8th), Firebird brings new state-of-the-art Swiss-designed floorless coaster trains to take riders through 2 inversions, countless twists and drops, all while they're suspended above the tracks!
“Six Flags is always taking thrilling innovation to the next level,” said Park President Rick Howarth. “FIREBIRD is a game-changer; offering guests an unparalleled, new riding experience. The floorless trains will give riders the sensation of being airborne as they soar along a half-mile of track with nothing beneath their feet but the wind.”
Firebird is scheduled to open in Spring 2019.
To kickoff the announcement and celebrate Labor Day weekend, Six Flags is offering their lowest prices on Seasons Passes during their Flash Sale. You can pick up a season pass with a free upgrade to Gold for about half a Benjamin. Not shabby.
Oh, and Six Flags isn't done... pick up a pass and you can go to ANY Six Flags park... and they're all adding something new for 2019. Check out this video to see what else is coming soon!
