Six Flags Over Texas to debut tallest loop coaster

El Diablo 

Ensuring riders have their head spinning in circles, the tallest loop coaster is making its debut at Six Flags Over Texas on Tuesday.

The Arlington amusement park named its 14th coaster El Diablo.

Standing at 100 feet tall, the coaster makes a series of 360-degree revolutions. And, halfway through the ride cycle, it will leave riders suspended upside down at the top of the loop and then change the direction of movement.

Colored fiery red and orange, the ride stays true to its name and is bound to attract thrill-seekers from all around.

“The Six Flags brand is synonymous with innovation at the highest level and we are excited to welcome another record-breaking attraction,” Park President Steve Martindale said in a statement. “This super-sized loop coaster features six inversions and the most hang-time of any coaster in the park.”

El Diablo seats 32 riders. The ride starts with a pendulum style takeoff.

“El Diablo packs a wicked punch and gives our members and season pass holders yet another new thrill to experience with family and friends,” Martindale said.
