Sky Ride

“The new ride [Joker 4D Spin Coaster]…is nothing like the park’s other thrill machines…[I]t sends passengers flipping and dropping for a disorienting and unusual, but engaging ride experience.” –USA Today

Called the “4D Free Flyer Coaster,” the Joker 4D Spin Coaster breaks Six Flags Over Texas’ 6-year coaster dry spell. Unlike standard coasters, the car’s seats mount to the sides of the steel track, which makes 360-degree rotation possible. Riders fly through the track, first encountering a 12-story lift, then two beyond-90-degree drops mid-ride, all while each car flips 360 degrees based on each individual’s weight.

Northwest Coasters completed the full installation of the Joker 4D Spin Coaster, helping Six Flags Over Texas provide a 4D riding experience to park attendees.
