Get ready to battle the Joker at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom as new hybrid coaster takes over!



It’s Six Flags announcement day! It’s the day where coaster fans, and adrenaline junkies all over the country find out all the new insane adventures coming to their favorite coaster park chain, Six Flags! Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in California is getting ready to roll out their latest insane coaster, and it will be a coaster that will have you twisting, turning and looking for Batman to save you. Are you ready to take a ride on The Joker?


The all new coaster will be taking the place of the park’s wooden coaster, Roar, as Discovery Kingdom gets ready to roll out it’s second DC Comics themed coaster in the park, right after Superman. The new coaster will be a hybrid built by Rocky Mountain Coasters, and will feature some insane new elements, as well as a killer new paint scheme.

“The Joker will be the most talked about new coaster in 2016,” said Don McCoy, park president. “We are excited to introduce this innovative technology that marries the best of both classic and modern coaster designs to offer our guests an unparalleled and unique experience.”




The insane new coaster will feature insane new elements that would make the clown prince himself proud.

Here’s some of the elements guests will be able to find!


  • 3,200 feet of dual-colored purple and green track;
  • A wild Zero G barrel roll;
  • 3 inversions;
  • 15 extreme airtime moments; and
  • Maximum speeds of 53 mph.

The coaster will also feature a “step-up under-flip inverted roll” that takes riders horizontal, and a breaking wave turn, the only one of its kind on the West Coast.
