Ragin Cajun

It’s official. Coming in 2014, Six Flags America will introduce a new Mardi Gras section of the park along with the addition of two exhilarating new rides. Ragin’ Cajun, a spinning, fast-track roller coaster, will be the theme park’s 9th roller coaster. Ragin’ Cajun will be joined by a new family-friendly, flying ride dubbed French Quarter Flyers. Both attractions will be located in the festive new Mardi Gras section of the park.

The new Mardi Gras area is a celebration of culture and entertainment. The festive new section is themed after the energy and liveliness of New Orleans. You can expect the snappy jazz, blues, and zydeco music as it pours into streets. Plus delicious food, exciting games, yummy beverages, and fun retail shops will help bring the spirit of the South to Six Flags America.

Ragin’ Cajun will be the park’s ninth roller coaster. This fast-track roller coaster twists, turns, tilts, and rotatesaround a 1,378-foot-long zigzagging track. The unique four-passenger train spins 360° and zips through breathtaking turns, which are sure to thrill even the most extreme coaster riders. This roller coaster is sure to be as wild as its name and will add a new and adrenaline-charged ride experience to the existing coaster collection.

The young and fun at heart will love French Quarter Flyers, you’ll glide through the air in one of eight flying cars. Each vehicle has a stationary rear wing and a moveable front wing and can travel at speeds up to 40 miles-per-hour. You can be the pilot and control your own riding destiny as you pump up the thrill for a more intense wild flight or simply sit back, take it easy and enjoy the ride.

The new Cajun-themed attractions at the park are set to debut in 2014. Are ya’ll ready to take on this all-new Mardi Gras party?

Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)
