Aug. 31 (UPI) -- Six Flags announced a new loop coaster hailed as a "world-record breaking attraction" is set open at its Illinois park in 2018.
The theme park group announced that Six Flags Great America will be the home of the 100-foot tall coaster that will be the world's largest loop coaster.
"Six Flags continues to prove that innovation is in our DNA, and we are thrilled to introduce yet another world-record breaking coaster to our impressive arsenal of thrill rides," the company said in a press release. "Standing at 100 feet tall, this is an experience our guests cannot get anywhere else on the planet. With the multiple inversions and record hang-time, this new coaster packs a punch and is going to be one of our most intense attractions."
In addition to being the largest of its kind, the park's 16th coaster will feature 60 degree revolutions with multiple inversions and a "face-off" design where guests are seated back-to-back and face-to-face.
The currently unnamed coaster will be located in the Mardi Gras section of the park when it opens in Spring 2018.
