Six Flags America, fulfilling its commitment to innovation and new attractions every season, today announced a new Mardi Gras section of the park along with the addition of two exhilarating new rides. Ragin’ Cajun, a spinning, fast-track roller coaster, will be the theme park’s 9th roller coaster. Ragin’ Cajun will be joined by a new family-friendly, flying ride dubbed French Quarter Flyers. Both attractions will be located in the new Mardi Gras section of the park.

Ragin’ Cajun is a fast track roller coaster that twists, turns and tilts as groups of four riders zigzag through 1,378 feet of dizzying 360° spins, breathtaking drops, sudden twists and erratic speeds. The roller coaster’s uniquely-designed train spins independently as it zips through a course as wild as its name and will add a new and adrenaline-charged ride experience to the existing coaster collection.

The young and fun at heart will love French Quarter Flyers, a family ride that will delight both kids and adults. This new attraction features eight individual flying cars. Each vehicle has a stationary rear wing and a moveable front wing and can travel at speeds up to 40 miles-per-hour. Guests will be the pilots and control their own riding destiny as they pump up the thrill for a more intense wild flight or simply sit back, take it easy and enjoy the ride.
