News Release, Six Flags Amusement Parks

UPPER MARLBORO, MD — Six Flags America, DC’s Thrill Capital, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced its newest attraction —Harley Quinn Spinsanity —will make its debut in 2020. The oversized giant pendulum ride named after the iconic DC Super Villain Harley Quinn, promises to deliver epic high-flying excitement as it spins and swings to breathtaking heights.

“Six Flags takes pride in delivering innovative, new, groundbreaking attractions every season,” said Park President Rick Howarth. “Our thrill-seeking guests will love this next-generation ride that offers a jaw-dropping, one-of-a-kind experience. Harley Quinn Spinsanity will be the tallest, fastest and most extreme pendulum ride in all of DC, Maryland, and Virginia combined.”

The towering, impressive giant disc will reach speeds up to 70 miles per hour as it whips back and forth going higher and higher while constantly spinning, giving riders an exhilarating riding experience. Members and Season Pass Holders will have the first opportunity to ride it when it opens for the 2020 season.

Harley Quinn Spinsanity highlights include:

• 40 riders will be powered 15 stories in the air at speeds of 70 miles per hour;
• The ride swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise;
• As guests swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of weightlessness at 147 feet in the air before plunging downward from 15 stories; and
• This is the tallest, fastest and most extreme pendulum ride in all of DC, Maryland, and Virginia

Harley Quinn Spinsanity will take her rightful villainous place across from THE JOKER’S Jinx and RIDDLE Me This in the park’s GOTHAM CITY section.
