‘World’s largest loop coaster’ coming to Six Flags Great America – Chicago Tribune

A 100-foot loop coaster dubbed as a “world-record breaking attraction” in an early-Thursday announcement by officials at Six Flags Great America is scheduled to open for the 2018 season at the Gurnee theme park.

“Six Flags Great America, the Thrill Capital of the Midwest, has an announcement of epic proportions,” park officials said in a statement released at 3 a.m. “Coming in 2018 is the world’s largest loop coaster. This world-record breaking attraction will take riders forward and backward on a gigantic loop before suspending them completely upside down for plenty of wicked hang-time.”

According to information included in the statement, the ride — currently without a name — will be situated in the Mardi Gras section of the park, where a tumbling platform ride called King Chaos was removed from the Great America roster on Aug. 27. Upon completion, it will be Great America’s 16th coaster.

The ride specifications tout it at the “world’s largest coaster of its kind” with 360-degree revolutions with multiple inversions; 32 seats with guests seated back-to-back and face-to-face; and inverted hang-time for riders, suspending them upside down for extended times.
