New DC UNIVERSE Themed Area Coming to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 2019

April 6, 2019 Theme Parks No Comments Email Email

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the Thrill Capital of Northern California, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC, today announced DC UNIVERSE, an exciting, newly themed section of the park where guests will find themselves immersed inside a DC comic book-inspired world. This themed section will feature the park’s most innovative roller coaster to date, BATMAN: The Ride—Northern California’s first 4D free fly roller coaster—and the newly reimagined THE FLASH: Vertical Velocity, a high-speed launch coaster. These two thrill machines join forces in DC UNIVERSE with an incredible lineup of existing branded attractions including: WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth, SUPERMAN Ultimate Flight, and the rogues’ gallery of Super-Villain-themed attractions—THE JOKERHARLEY QUINN Crazy Coaster, and THE PENGUIN Ride.

“We take great pride in bringing our guests innovative, new experiences every season,” said Park President Don McCoy. “DC UNIVERSE is the biggest park expansion in recent decades. This newly branded area brings together DC’s most iconic Super Heroes and Super-Villains for a thrilling, one-of-a-kind experience. And our Members and Season Pass Holders can enjoy free, unlimited visits to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Hurricane Harbor Concord as well as Six Flags Magic Mountain and all Six Flags theme parks across the country.”

Headlining the DC UNIVERSE branded section this summer is BATMAN: The Ride, a fantastic, weightless coaster experience that features six free fly inversions. Other highlights of this adrenaline-pumping coaster include:

  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring smooth, head-over-heels free-fly flips, giving guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track;
  • 4D winged vehicles that extend outside of the track and seat eight riders per vehicle;
  • Face-off seats that allow riders to face each other as they tumble head-over-heels; and
  • A 120-foot-tall, 90-degree vertical lift hill and two beyond 90-degree “raven” drops giving the sensation of freefalling.

Also debuting in 2019, a guest favorite thrill ride experienced in an exhilarating, new way—THE FLASH: Vertical Velocity. Featuring new thematic elements, this spiraling, suspended coaster uses an advanced electromagnet propulsion system to shoot riders from 0-60 through a myriad of exhilarating movements including fast straightaways, corkscrew inversions and up a 150-foot-tall vertical tower.

The DC UNIVERSE themed area will also offer a host of new food, shopping and entertainment options. Guests can satisfy their inner super hero or super-villain at The Daily Planet, THE JOKER Funhouse Shop, or the new Batman-themed retail store. For those super appetites, Quick Quenchers Refill Station, and Big Belly Burger, featuring mobile ordering, will be ready with hot, delicious food and icy cold beverages. Members of the Justice League will also be on hand for meet-and-greet and photo ops throughout the day.
