Six Flags Great America has announced a new roller coaster Maxx Force, which can take riders from 0 to 78 mph in under 2 seconds, coming in 2019.
Six Flags describes it as a triple record breaking launch coaster, with the fastest acceleration in North America.
It will have the tallest double inversion in the world, which turns riders upside down and it will have the fastest inversion in the world.
“The new Maxx Force coaster is in a class all by itself, launching riders from 0 to 78 miles per hour in under two seconds,” said Six Flags Great America Park President Hank Salemi. “No other coaster in the country accelerates at that blistering speed.”
The coaster trains are modeled after Formula One racing cars. The coaster will debut next summer in the Carousel Plaza area of the park.
