Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is adding a giant new attraction named Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth to their line-up. The park is adding a Giant Frisbee from Zamperla that will reach speeds of 70 MPH and swings riders 150 feet into the sky! It’ll look, and certainly feel, massive as you soar as high as the park’s tallest attractions!
“It is our intention to open new, innovative attractions every season,” said Don McCoy, park president. “Wonder Woman is an iconic Super Hero and this character and thrill ride will add greatly to our line-up of DC themed attractions.”
WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth is an over sized pendulum shaped ride that will send guests on a dizzying journey in this thrilling and extreme attraction. WONDER WOMAN, the most iconic female Super Hero, is the embodiment of justice, equality and peace; she is the symbol of female empowerment, as she seeks to fight evil at every turn. The new ride will make a staple as it’ll be located at the front of the park, next to the path visitors take from the parking lot to the park’s entrance.
Some ride highlights include:
· 40 riders will propel at speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour;
· The ride swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise; and
· As guests swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of weightlessness at 147 feet in the air.
WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth will be located near two of the park’s newest attractions, Superman Ultimate Flight and The Joker, which opened earlier this year. Which makes us believe the park is indeed turning one of their popular coaster plazas into a DC Universe themed section of the park. Slowly but surely.
Overall, though it’s odd that the park already has a Frisbee type attraction, and is now adding another one, it is a wonderful addition. The park has a local building restriction of 150 feet tall, and the riders will be swung up that high, creating incredible aerial views of the park’s many other attractions of a 150 feet tall! We rode this type of ride at Six Flags Over Texas this year and fell in love. We’re very much looking forward to Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth!
