New Dare Devil Chaos Coaster Coming to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 2015

Link: https://www.sixflags.com/discoverykingdom/attractions/dare-devil-chaos/overview

VALLEJO, Calif. ― August 28, 2014 ― What goes around, comes around, and in the case of the new Dare Devil Chaos Coaster opening at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, guests will find an exciting new thrill ride guaranteed to get their adrenaline pumping.

Dare Devil Chaos Coaster is a single looping coaster that builds anticipation as riders seated back to back travel backwards and forwards until momentum takes them at top speed revolutions, only to stop upside down at 70 feet high and reverse direction.

“This is a great new addition to our line-up of world class rides and attractions, and is sure to be fun for all," said Don McCoy, park president. “What appears to be a simple track is really complex and riders will have a great time anticipating the inversion they know is coming."

Dare Devil Chaos Coaster features:

24 seats set in true face-off fashion, with guests seated back to back and face to face
360 degree revolutions
7 stories in height
Inverted hang time with riders suspended upside down

The new ride brings the number of coasters at the park to nine along with Medusa, Roar, V2, Kong, Boomerang, Cobra, Road Runner Express and SUPERMAN Ultimate Flight. Dare Devil is expected to open in spring 2015.

Well it is a rollercoaster and if it draws people away from roar, sky screamer and Superman i'm all for it.

I appreciate how they took the time to craft the logo to make it really unique...

I love the fact that they're getting a new ride. This however is way too much like Hammer Head Shark and is clearly not a roller coaster. Unless they're taking out hammer head I think this is a mistake to add a carnival ride like this to a theme park.

^Well Hammerhead is old, they could take it out any day now. Maybe that'll be the site of the next new ride?

I don't like that they're calling this a coaster, I definitely won't be counting it as one.

I'm willing to suspend judgement for now until this thing opens. Maybe it'll be a good addition to the park. Looks like it's going over behind V2? Seems like a good place for another ride.

But, I'm positive it will be listed as a coaster. It's just a way for them to list it as a new one.

Looks like a decent flat ride, however i'm still amazed that they're promoting this and the rest of them as coasters. And yeah, that's just an edited Dare Devil Dive logo.

I'm sorta disappointed. It is a carnival flat ride, not a coaster, and it's just like Hammerhead. Luckily, Twisted Colossus looks awesome.

A good reason to be disappointed is that six flags is not adding any variety by adding like 4 of these things into their park on the same year
