GURNEE -- Six Flags Great America Thursday announced plans to unveil DC UNIVERSE, a newly themed section of the amusement park where guests can immerse themselves inside a DC comic book-inspired world, when it opens for the season Friday, April 15.

DC UNIVERSE will be located in the former Yankee Harbor section of the park. It will feature three re-imagined attractions: THE FLASH: Vertical Velocity, a high-speed launch coaster; AQUAMAN Splashdown, a winding flume ride with a watery plunge; and DC Super-Villains Swing, a spinning attraction twirling guests in a 360-degree orbit.

 

DC UNIVERSE will also offer new dining and shopping experiences, as well as elevated guest comforts, such as an open midway, new patio space to enjoy refreshments and photo op installations featuring iconic DC characters. This themed section will also include park favorites BATMAN The Ride and THE JOKER Free-Fly Coaster.

"DC UNIVERSE is the largest and most exciting park enhancement in recent memory," said Park President John Krajnak. "This newly branded area brings together some of DC's most iconic Super Heroes and Super-Villains for an exhilarating and immersive experience."
