As summer comes to a close, so do rollercoasters, thrills, and funnel cake. Although the Six Flags Great America season will end soon, the park will be updated with a new coaster that will be ready to ride next season.

“I go to six flags often, I have a season pass and I love all the roller coasters,” senior Hope Calcagno said.

The new loop rollercoaster will be 100 feet tall, which will make it the largest loop coaster in the world. The seats will face backwards and forward, so each rider will have a different experience.

“I have had a season pass to Six Flags for the past few years and go fairly frequently each year. I like to go just to have a fun time with friends and I love the thrill of the coasters,” senior Chris Sable said.

The rollercoaster will be located in the Mardi Gras section of the park, but it has not yet been named. According to a Correspondent twitter poll, 25 percent students plan to check out the rollercoaster next summer. (36 students were polled.)

“I definitely will be going to the park to see the new coaster next season because I think it will be different from any of the other coasters at Six Flags,” Calcagno said.
