Six Flags Fiesta Texas announced their new Wonder Woman Golden Lasso roller coaster for the 2018 season. The ride will have the distinction as the World’s first single rail roller coaster thanks to the new Rocky Mountain Construction raptor track design.
Wonder Woman Golden Lasso will be 113 feet tall, with a top speed of 52 mph. It will feature a 100 foot tall 90-degree drop and three inversions including a dive loop, cutback, and a corkscrew.
My Take – Great Theme & Questionable Capacity
As a geek of all things super heroes, I’m glad to see a Wonder Woman themed roller coaster. With the popularity of the movie, this is a really smart move for Six Flags. And as they’re saying in their marketing, Fiesta Texas can now boast the “trilogy” as the Wonder Woman Golden Lasso will join Batman and the awesome Superman Krypton coaster.
My astute coaster-loving daughter pointed out that riders will sit in a line one behind the other with only eight riders per train; which for a roller coaster is really low. I don’t know how many trains the coaster will have, but ride capacity could be low. This may mean long, slow moving lines for guests. We’ll have to wait and see, but definitely something to consider.
