Six Flags Great America will open what appears to be a 100-foot Larson looping ride for 2018. While the announcement doesn't include a name, the park insists on calling it a roller coaster.

Still trying to come up with a Mardi Gras related name....

I read elsewhere that the name is Hurricane Force and they decided to withhold that for now.

Well the one (or similar one) that they have here @SFA is the "Bourbon Street Fireball". I see no reason that they would *not* recycle the name (assuming it's going in the Mardi Gras section).

How is it possible that 100 ft is the world record for "loop coaster?"
"Tital wave" from 1978 was 137ft tall right?

"Welcome to six flags, where we will give you "world class" carnival rides."
They are also pulling a "cedar point" when they insist that these world records are being broken, with these new ride anouncements.
First coaster in the world that has two f's
In the name "FFireball."

Ahh, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask you to come in on Sunday, too...

^^ "Bourbon Street Flash" has a better ring to it from where I'm sitting.

Let's just agree that _______ won't be cracking the CBuzz Top 100.

I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.
