“Innovation is part of the Six Flags DNA and CYBORG Hyper Drive reinforces our commitment to delivering the latest and greatest in thrills and entertainment,” said Park President Pete Carmichael. “Our DC-branded attractions are extremely popular with our guests and we are excited to add another cutting-edge attraction bearing Cyborg’s name to our already epic lineup.”

CYBORG Hyper Drive is an extreme, new dark ride experience and the first dark ride to premiere at the Thrill Capital of New England since 1999. CYBORG Hyper Drive invites guests to S.T.A.R. Labs to help Cyborg test a new technological device. As the story unfolds, the evil, sentient cybernetic system called GRID hacks into the mainframe and takes control of the entire lab. Riders find themselves caught up in the battle, spinning and whirling mercilessly through the air, while Cyborg wrestles to regain control of the enormous machine. This thrilling, new attraction offers 360 degrees of pure, heart-pounding adrenaline.

Ride highlights include:

  • Riders become part of the action as volunteers in a top secret S.T.A.R. Labs experiment
  • 24 riders sitting in an outward facing position;
  • Quick acceleration reaching intense velocity while guests whirl through countless rotations of spinning insanity;
  • A DC Super Hero storyline featuring Cyborg’s battle with an evil DC Super-Villain; and
  • Immersive state-of-the-art digital, lighting, and hologram effects.
