Six Flags America announces the Bourbon Street Fireball

Posted Thursday, August 28, 2014 11:07 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Coming in 2015! Bourbon Street Fireball, a seven story, chaotic looping roller coaster, will be unlike anything you have ever experienced. This sizzling steel monster towers over the Mardi Gras section of the park, delivering 360-degree thrills to those who are brave enough to ride!

You’ll rock back and forth in a uniquely designed train that will reverse direction mid-loop. Then, you’ll hang suspended upside down just long enough to catch your breath, this fireball will shoot you through a series of heart pounding full-circle revolutions. The unpredictable Bourbon Street Fireball looms high over Mardi Gras classics like Ragin Cajun and Wild One, serving up world class excitement at Six Flags America.

This sounds like an updated version of the old Ring of Fire carnival ride.

I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks, than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

I AM just pulling your chain. That's exactly what this ride is.

I honestly thought this was some sort of a joke in the announcement thing I seen, Honestly there is one at almost every carnival and county fair in the country and this is a Major addition 24 riders every four minutes?

And calling it a coaster? The pendulum rides do the exact same thing.

Not trying to be a downer, But it seems if anything for a major park it would be part of a three ride or more addition kinda like CP did with Gemini Midway.
