“The Six Flags brand is synonymous with innovation at the highest level and we are excited to welcome another record-breaking attraction,” said Park President Steve Martindale. “This super-sized loop coaster features six inversions and the most hang-time of any coaster in the park. El Diablo packs a wicked punch and gives our Members and Season Pass Holders yet another new thrill to experience with family and friends.”

Towering a staggering 100 feet tall, El Diablo will boast a fiery red and orange theme and send riders back and forth, propelling them head over heels through a series of 360° revolutions. The coaster changes direction halfway through the ride cycle, leaving riders suspended upside down at the top of the loop for even more intense thrills.

El Diablo’s highlights:

  • World’s tallest coaster of its kind;
  • Six inversions;
  • 32 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated back-to-back and face-to-face; and
  • A pendulum style takeoff with multiple 360°degree revolutions around the 10-story loop
