Six flags introduces new coaster for 2011 season

Press Release 

AUSTELL, GA – Attention all daredevils, the Southeast's largest theme park Six Flags Over Georgia, is proud to announce a unique new roller coaster for the 2011 season.

DARE DEVIL DIVE will be the park's first "euro fighter" coaster, which features a rare ten story vertical lift and the country's first drop that dives beyond vertical as it plummets towards earth.

DARE DEVIL DIVE's mission begins with guests being pulled straight up to the sky on a special vertical chain lift, then slowly rolling to the top of the tower nearly 100 feet in the air. 

After an agonizing pause at the crest of the summit, the coaster car plummets downward at an angle that is beyond straight down - it actually angles inward at a blistering 52 mph. 

The ride then careens through a thrilling combination of diving loops while executing three inversions before riders catch air on a zero gravity hill and swoop across the dreaded Immelmann vertical U turn stretched high above the ground. The crescendo builds as the car dives toward the ground and up into a Heartline roll before being slowed by the magnetic brakes.

"We're excited to welcome DARE DEVIL DIVE as our 11th roller coaster," said Melinda Ashcraft, Park President of Six Flags Atlanta Properties. "This thrill ride features a vertical lift hill and beyond vertical first drop that our guests have never experienced before.  It will be the perfect complement to an already stellar coaster lineup."

DARE DEVIL DIVE is custom-designed and engineered by the industry-acclaimed Gerstlauer Rides based in Germany, who also created the popular Tony Hawk's Big Spin at several Six Flags parks and Pandemonium at Six Flags New England.

DARE DEVIL DIVE is scheduled to open Memorial Day Weekend and will join a host of thrilling rides and attractions at Six Flags Over Georgia including the hyper-coaster Goliath, one of the tallest coasters in the Southeast, Batman: The Ride and Superman: Ultimate Flight.
