Superman and Batman better step aside, because DC Comics’ legendary Amazon has finally arrived with the grand opening of the Wonder Woman: Golden Lasso Coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
On May 12, 2018, Six Flags Fiesta Texas debuted the world’s first-ever single rail Wonder Woman themed roller coaster to the public. The attraction features a first-of-its-kind single I-beam rail no wider than 15.5 inches, with riders seated single file and their legs positioned on either side of the thin monorail track. This new design by Rocky Mountain Construction gives riders an open-air, unobstructed view as they twist and turn above the 100-foot quarry walls.
“Six Flags continues to raise the bar with groundbreaking new rides and attractions every year. We are very excited to debut the world’s first single rail Wonder Woman coaster. This is an incredible ride that delivers big thrills from start to finish,” said Park President Jeffrey Siebert. “With the launch of the Wonder Woman coaster, Six Flags Fiesta Texas has created an impressive trilogy of DC Super-Hero attractions, as Wonder Woman: Golden Lasso Coaster joins Batman: The Ride 4D Free Fly Coaster and Superman Krypton Coaster.”
Wonder Woman: Golden Lasso Coaster features three single-file 8-passenger trains in themed colors of red, gold and blue that race along a slender golden track held by red supports. As guests enter the ride queue, they are greeted by a likeness of Wonder Woman and immersed in the story of her life and how she obtained her super powers. Guests will be surrounded by tropical landscaping and ancient architecture found in Themyscira, Wonder Woman’s original island home. After using the loading station’s moving walkway to board their streamlined ride vehicle, riders will race through a straight-down 90-degree drop (a first for a Fiesta Texas coaster), two airtime hills, one 180-degree stall, a zero-g roll, and overbanked turns.
