Stomach turning, scream inducing and heart racing roller coaster rides are as much of a summer tradition as barbecues and beaches. Every year there’s a race to build faster, more exhilarating and technologically-advanced rides. From coast to coast, 2011 is no exception.
The following 5 new rides are worth their weight in steel:
- Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens in Tampa
- Dare Devil Dive at Six Flags over Georgia
- GREEN LANTERN Extreme at Six Flags Great Adventure
- GREEN LANTERN: First Flight at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles
- SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles
Derek Brown, a member of the Orbitz editorial team, broke his roller coaster teeth in on the now removed Python at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
