Sky Sled opens at Six Flags

Skycoaster, a division of Ride Entertainment, has installed its innovative Sky Sled ride at four key properties in the Six Flags portfolio, including Six Flags Magic Mountain, Six Flags over Texas, Six Flags Great Adventure and Six Flags Mexico.

Designed to offer a thrilling flying experience, replicating the sensation of a cliff dive or parachute jump. The ride boasts a unique harness which holds guests in an upright seated position. The harness is winched to the very top of the Launch Tower, and gives riders far-reaching views of their surroundings, before a ripcord is pulled, sending them on an exhilirating flight.

The Sky Sled, which was in developement for five years, is the culmination of a significant period of re-investment in the Skycoaster brand, which over the past decade has undergone a series of improvements including a redesign of the ride's structure and a partnership with KCL Engineering to offer a programmable LED lighting solution.

Lance Beatty, MD at Skycoaster, said: "Last year, Six Flags had told us they wanted to be the first theme park to premier the new Sky Sled. We were happy to oblige as they have been a fantastic partner for decades. Today, to see a Skycoaster at nearly every Six Flags property is truly incredible."
