New Magnetic Boat Ride- Fair Park, TX

Sorry if this is old news-

"We were looking for a thrill ride, and Six Flags has the market cornered for roller coasters," Mr. McKoy said.

Current plans call for two boats carrying 40 people. Propelled by magnets, the boats will accelerate to 60 mph in four seconds along a 400-foot track, swing around and return. To enhance the experience, the boats will spit fire from their exhaust pipes, emit a heart-pounding rumble and spew a rooster tail of water behind them.

"It will be a fairly short ride, but it will be a pure shot of adrenaline," Mr. McKoy said."

It's part of a larger project to make Fair Park a year round operation. The link is to a Dallas Morning News article:
