ARLINGTON, Texas (News release) - Six Flags Over Texas will be adding the world’s largest loop coaster, the Lone Star Revolution. Watch a video of the new coaster in motion by clicking on the "related links" posted at the side of this story.

In a news release, park officials say the new coaster will take riders forward and backward on a gigantic loop before suspending them upside down for plenty of adrenaline-pumping hang-time. Lone Star Revolution will make its debut in late spring 2019.

“The Six Flags brand is synonymous with innovation at the highest level and we are excited to welcome another record-breaking attraction to an already stellar thrill ride arsenal,” said Park President Steve Martindale. “This Texas-sized loop coaster offers an intense, heart-pounding experience unlike any other ride in the park.”

Towering 100 feet tall, Lone Star Revolution sends riders back and forth propelling them 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 loops.

Facts about the Lone Star Revolution:
• World’s largest coaster of its kind;
• 32 seats in unique “face-off” design, with guests seated face-to-face;
• A pendulum style takeoff with multiple 360°degree revolutions around the 10-story loop; and
• The park’s 14th coaster.
