BIZARRO Soars Into Six Flags Great Adventure
Themed around the DC Comics character Bizarro, this newly-enhanced roller coaster offers thrill-seekers the exhilaration of a Six Flags signature coaster combined with the unique storytelling of the twisted world of Bizarro.
The experience features high tech special effects and a precisely orchestrated on-board audio production designed to assault the senses for a world-class "show" on a roller coaster.
The DC Comics character, Bizarro, is best known as a peculiar Superman-like creature from a parallel Earth known as Htrae where inhabitants believe in "doing the opposite of all Earthly things." Because he is the imperfect duplicate of Superman, his powers and abilities manifest themselves as opposites of Superman's powers including freeze vision, heat breath, spotlight vision and x-ray hearing.
The BIZARRO experience begins the moment guests enter the ride queue through a custom-created comic designed exclusively for this ride by DC Comics. Guests quickly uncover the mysterious background of the Bizarro character and his destructive takeover of the attraction before stepping onto the ride.
Unlike traditional coasters, BIZARRO is floorless, giving riders the sensation of flying as their feet dangle above the track. The three minute and fifteen second thrill begins with a pulse-quickening 146-foot climb before plummeting 61 miles-per-hour through Bizarro's freeze vision "cool zone." The rush continues as riders twist and turn through seven loops - including 114-foot vertical and 96-foot dive loops - blast past bursts of Bizarro's fire breath and race by bizarre scenes and illusions. The mind-boggling 3,985-foot twisting journey of storytelling and high-tech elements ends by sending riders head first into a spiked-shaped Auger of Doom, set inside interlocking corkscrews. Throughout the entire journey, riders experience the adrenaline rush with heart-pounding, on-board audio taking them to a whole new dimension of imagination.
"Six Flags Great Adventure is recognized for our unique coaster collection and for continually pushing the envelope season after season," said Mark Kane, Six Flags Great Adventure's President. "With this transformation, guests experience a thrill ride so surreal and so menacing, no other coaster compares."
Six Flags introduced a unique multimedia, interactive marketing campaign for the BIZARRO launch, generating community engagement via an alternative reality game (ARG). After an intense five months of online play and more than 500,000 participants, Six Flags Great Adventure hosted a final in-park scavenger hunt rewarding 30 key players exclusive access to the grand opening and the opportunity to be the first riders on the all-new BIZARRO.
