Six Flags Discovery Kingdom announces Dare Devil Chaos Coaster

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

Coming in 2015! Six Flags Discovery Kingdom’s newest roller coaster attraction is a perfect balance of anticipation and suspense, unbridled thrills and unmatched wonder – where you’re constantly at the cusp of heading into an inversion and you wonder when will it ever happen?

With the new Dare Devil Chaos Coaster, it is a matter of momentum that finally takes riders, seated face-to-face or back-to-back, looping full speed around the single circular track up to seven stories high, only to stop and suspend riders upside-down before reversing direction for more thrills and fun.

If in your reality you want it to be considered a coaster, it can be. If in your reality you do not want it to be a coaster, it doesn't have to be.

I think the real question here is, will Jeff include it in the track record?

I will be fine with it being included in the track record or not but using RCDB as a conservative guide, they are not currently counting the rides as coasters. The argument can certainly be made either way, however I have chosen Coasterbuzz to be my 'official' track record for the last decade and I will continue to do so regardless of this interesting case being made by Six Flags.


I'm sheriff of this here rollercoaster.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that CoasterBuzz will not be including any of these Super Loops as coasters. And I'm glad so I don't have to cross the country trying to get on every one.

I can't even believe I am responding to this... but, if these rides have never been coasters before in however many years, the fact that Six Flags has decided that they are now coasters, means diddly.


Nothing to see here. Move along.

I think this is another case of Six Flags unfairly catching crap.

The manufacturer sells the ride as a compact roller coaster.

I suppose Six Flags doesn't have to perpetuate the terminology, but it originates with the manufacturer.

A Schwarzkopf Katapult ride would be infinitely more convincing...

This is a P&B knock-off, but the point remains.

That's a lot of wasted motion for one loop in each direction.

But at least it's a credit. Haha
