Six Flags America, located in Washington, D.C., has announced that its stand-up coaster, Apocalypse: The Last Stand, will close forever on Saturday, Sept. 8.
Apocalypse has ruled as the only stand-up roller coaster in Maryland and has given over 1.6 million rides since its 2012 debut. With thematic elements like a plane crash, fiery explosions and zombies, the coaster features two high-speed inversions and multiple turns, twists, and drops.
“Our wheels are always turning when it comes to new and innovative thrills and attractions to bring to the park,” said Rick Howarth, park president. “The end is near but saying good-bye to Apocalypse will allow us to bring an all-new thrilling experience to our guests in 2019.”
Guests can mourn and say their final farewells to Apocalypse on Sept. 8 with special ride times offered to Gold Plus, Platinum, Diamond and Diamond Elite Members and members of American Coaster Enthusiasts.
