Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington, Texas, has unleashed a “devilish” attraction with the opening of the world’s tallest looping thrill ride—El Diablo in the Spain section of the park. It’s a 30M Giant Loop from Larson International.
“The Six Flags brand is synonymous with innovation at the highest level and we are excited to welcome another record-breaking attraction,” said Park President Steve Martindale. “This super-sized loop coaster features six inversions and the most hang-time of any coaster in the park. El Diablo packs a wicked punch and gives our Members and Season Pass Holders yet another new thrill to experience with family and friends.”
Towering a staggering 100 feet tall, El Diablo boasts a fiery red and orange theme and send riders back and forth, propelling them head over heels through a series of 360° revolutions. The fully powered thrill ride changes direction halfway through the ride cycle, leaving riders suspended upside down at the top of the loop for even more intense thrills.
El Diablo’s is the world’s tallest ride of its kind featuring six inversions, 32 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated back-to-back and face-to-face, and a pendulum style takeoff with multiple 360°degree revolutions around the 10-story loop.
