An S&S Launch Coaster for 2019 at Six Flags Great America!

Hey Gurnee, get your season passes ready because this thing looks fantastic!

Although a ride that may be missing a second half, the new S&S launch coaster coming to Six Flags Great America features many never-before-seen elements that look to make it a must-ride for 2019!


The new S&S launch coaster "Maxx Force" coming to SF Great America next season launches you from 0-78 in under two seconds. It's the fastest launch acceleration in the USA.

"According to details released in a pre-dawn announcement, the new attraction in Carousel Plaza near the park’s main entrance is scheduled to open next summer as “the fastest launch coaster in North America, and feature the fastest inversion and highest double inversion of any roller coaster in the world.”

“Six Flags reigns supreme for record-breaking, one-of-a-kind rides and world-class thrills,” Park President Hank Salemi said in a statement. “The new Maxx Force coaster is in a class all by itself, launching riders from 0 to 78 miles per hour in under two seconds. No other coaster in the country accelerates at that blistering speed.”

The statement added that Maxx Force would be the 17th coaster in the Great America stable and its design is expected to include an air-powered launching system “propelling guests forward at record speeds”; the world’s highest double inversion at 175 feet above the ground; the fastest inversion on any roller coaster in the world with a 60 miles-per-hour zero-G roll; five high-speed inversions; and “one-of-a-kind custom coaster trains modeled after Formula One racing cars.”" -Chicago Tribune
