"Six Flags is recognized throughout the world for bringing new
innovations and one-of-a-kind thrills to every park, every year and The
Joker Wild Card adds another world-record attraction for Six Flags
Fiesta Texas," said Park President Jeffrey Siebert. "The Joker Wild Card
will be the fastest ride in park history and is the perfect villainous
twist to our already spectacular ride lineup in the newly themed DC
Universe area."

The DC Universe area will include:

  • The Joker Wild Card – where 40 riders will experience
    speeds up to 75 miles per hour as they reach a world-record 17 stories
    high;
  • The pendulum swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise;
  • As guests swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of
    weightlessness at 172 feet in the air; and,
  • Enhanced attractions, dining, games, and shopping.

The park also announced a year-round operation, adding weekends and
holidays to its regular operating season for January and February. "With
all the innovative thrills we've added over the last several years, this
is a perfect time for us to transition to a year-round operating
schedule," said Park President Jeffrey Siebert. "This is a
transformative decision and should also position us to take advantage of
new shoulder season business growth."
