 Park Also Announces Extended Year-Round Operation

SAN ANTONIO, Texas —March 25, 2019Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the Thrill Capital of South Texas, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, recently unveiled plans for The Joker Carnival of Chaos, the world’s tallest pendulum ride, to debut in early summer 2019. Standing at record-breaking 17-stories in the air, this impressive giant disk will reach speeds up to 75 miles per hour, as it whips back and forth — higher and higher to give riders a staggering view of the world below them.

“Six Flags is recognized throughout the world for bringing new innovations and one-of-a-kind thrills to every park, every year and The Joker Carnival of Chaos adds another world-record attraction for Six Flags Fiesta Texas,” said Park President Jeffrey Siebert. “The Joker will be the fastest ride in park history and is the perfect villainous twist to our already spectacular ride lineup.”

The Joker will include:

  • A total of 40 riders will experience speeds up to 75 miles per hour as they reach a world-record 17 stories high;
  • The pendulum swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise;
  • As guests swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of weightlessness at 172 feet in the air; and,
  • Enhanced attractions, dining, games, and shopping.

The park also announced a year-round operation, adding weekends and holidays to its regular operating season for January and February.  “With all the innovative thrills we’ve added over the last several years, this is a perfect time for us to transition to a year-round operating schedule,” said Park President Jeffrey Siebert.  “This is a transformative decision and should also position us to take advantage of new shoulder season business growth.”
