The Joker – FREE FLY  coaster!

The ride will be the 15th coaster on the Gurnee theme park’s active roster. The 12-story Joker  will be in  Yankee Harbor, next to Great America’s 1992 entirely different version of Batman: The Ride.

Riders will proceed up a 90-degree lift hill and then “flip head-over-heels at least six times along the weightless journey.”

“Thrill seekers will experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane with unexpected drops as they tumble from one level to the next,” park officials said in the statement. “The wing seats amp up the pandemonium since riders will experience this wild adventure with no track above or below — just the sky, ground and plenty of sinister thrills.”


Ride specifications  list the ride’s height as 109 feet, with vehicles reaching 38 mph and generating 2.8 G’s as they roll along for 50 seconds on more than 1,000 feet of track.

“The 4D Free Spin utilizes magnetic technology to induce and control spinning,” the S&S statement added. “These unique vehicles hold eight passengers seated in pairs, four on each side of the track. The three layers of vertically stacked track feature speed bumps and two beyond-vertical raven drops.”
