Six Flags Over Georgia’s 11th roller coaster, the Dare Devil Dive, is now open for thrills. The new coaster sends riders over a 10-story vertical lift at a spine-tingling 95 degrees: beyond vertical.
Media, roller coaster enthusiasts and professional test pilots from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics were on hand for the launch of the park’s latest thrill offering.
It boasts three inversions, zero-gravity hills and high-speed turns. Riders travel in the world’s first “v-shape” trains fitted with lap bar restraints and stadium seating, paying homage to World War II-era stunt planes and the daring pilots that thrilled onlookers with their aerial acrobatics.
The ride soars at a blistering 52 miles per hour as it makes its way through 2,090 feet of twisted steel track.
“We have taken thrills to the next level,” said Melinda Ashcraft, Park president. “Dare Devil Dive is that must-ride attraction of the year, providing an incredible experience for everyone who dares to ride.”
It officially opened for the public on Saturday, May 28.
The park is open daily through August 7 and resumes weekend operations through October 30. Operating hours vary by day.
