    higher and higher, giving guests an exhilarating ride experience as
    they soar high above the Atlanta city skyline. Pandemonium will

  • Six
    Flags St. Louis
    , The Coaster Capital of Missouri, will take guests
    on an adrenaline-charged flight on the new SUPERGIRL attraction
    as they soar nearly seven stories high in open-air vehicles.
    Drawing on DC Super Hero Supergirl's powers of stamina and strength,
    thrill- seekers spin and tilt while suspended from the massive,
    whirling wheel. The ride is raised into the air by a giant arm as
    riders launch into a high-speed spin, with feet dangling as they spin
    round and round…higher and higher.
  • This fall, Six Flags delivers the biggest Halloween event on the
    planet — Fright Fest®. Prepare for Thrills
    by Day, Fright by Night
    with more ghouls, more haunted mazes and
    more terrifying scares than ever before. Taking the fear factor to a
    new level, this year Six Flags and CBS Films are launching
    custom-built haunted attractions based on the new horror movie
    release, Hell Fest, coming to theaters on Friday, September 28,
    2018. The company's industry leading entertainment teams at Six Flags

    mazes into real life replicas of the movie's most unnerving, goriest
    and shockingly epic scenes.
