Six Flags Ride Roundup 2012

What with all of the Six Flags 2012 announcements today, we thought it would be convenient to compile them all in one place. Unfortunately, Blogger won't let me include more than one ride video per page, so be sure to click on the links to view the videos and other info. All photos are courtesy of Six Flags. Enjoy!

Six Flags America

SFA will be getting Iron Wolf from Great America as was predicted. The ride will be renamed Apocalypse: The Last Stand. Here's the official page.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

SFDK will add its own version of Superman: Ultimate Flight. Unlike the B&M flyers at other parks, this one will be a launched coaster from Premier, and will stand approximately 150 feet tall. Be sure to check it out - it's quite unique. Visit the page here.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas
SFFT will be adding a 200-foot tall Star Flyer, "Sky Screamer," in 2012. It will travel at approximately 40 mph and will hold 32 guests. Check out the official page.

Six Flags Great Adventure
Like Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Great Adventure will be adding a Sky Screamer in 2012 as well. This one, however, will only be 150 feet tall. Check it out here.

Six Flags Great America

SFGAm plans to introduce it's newest coaster, X-Flight, in 2012. The roller coaster will be a B&M Wing Rider, standing 120 feet tall and reaching speeds of 55 miles per hour. It will feature five inversions, and will be approximately 3,000 feet long. More details here: X-Flight.

Six Flags Magic Mountain

SFMM will add the world's tallest drop tower for 2012, Lex Luthor's Drop of Doom. The ride will be added to both sides of the Superman: Escape from Krypton tower, which will give it a height of 400 feet. Check out the video below or visit the official page here.

Six Flags New England

As expected, SFNE will be receiving Deja Vu from Magic Mountain, although it will be renamed Goliath. It will stand 190 feet tall, and will reach speeds of up to 65 mph. Check it all out here.

Six Flags St. Louis

SFStL will be adding onto Hurricane Harbor, with the addition of two AquaLoop slides under the name Bonzai Pipeline.
