ARLINGTON, Texas — August 29, 2019 — Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC, announces the next generation in water coaster thrill rides and the first-of-its-kind in North America—AQUAMAN: Power Wave. The park’s 15th coaster will launch riders backwards and forwards, straight up colossal 148 feet twin track towers and then send them plunging straight down, screaming across more than 700 feet of track before hurtling at 63 miles per hour towards the ultimate massive splash down.
“Six Flags leads the industry in thrill ride innovation; it is part of our DNA, and we are taking thrills to the next level with the opening of AQUAMAN: Power Wave. We are excited to theme our latest unique and memorable ride around the iconic DC Super Hero,” said Park President Steve Martindale. “When the weather heats up in Texas, guests will swarm to this attraction for a water thrill ride experience like no other in the country.”
AQUAMAN: Power Wave’s highlights include:
First water coaster of its kind in North America;
Top speed of 63 miles per hour;
Launch-style water coaster will suspend riders in a 90° angle before hurtling them across the more than 700 feet of track; and
This is the park’s 15th coaster.
In addition to the exciting, new AQUAMAN: Power Wave, the park is also announcing year-round operation on weekends, holidays and special dates in January and February.
“With our vast collection of thrills for all ages, coupled with the region’s mild temperatures, expanding to a year-round operating schedule will give our Members and Season Pass Holders even greater value for their money,” said Mr. Martindale.
Also on tap for the 2020 season Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, the largest waterpark in North Texas, will open an all-new slide complex called, Banzai Pipeline. Guests will have the choice of three slides with multiple twists, turns and drops down a four-story tower. Thrill-seekers may opt to brave the enclosed slides solo or grab a friend for a tandem ride down. Banzai Pipeline will open in the summer.
