All set to launch for the 2016 season, The Great Escape will welcome the all-new Greezed Lightnin' looping coaster. The fast-paced Greezed Lightnin' will seat 24 riders in "face-off" position and begin to rock forward and backward, pendulum style. As the coaster train reaches maximum height, guests experience one of the longest suspended hang-times - over 70 feet in the air, upside down. Thrill seekers are then hurled through a series of seven full inversions, both frontward and backward, offering sheer looping mayhem.
This stupendous new attraction will be located across from Thunder Alley in one of the most historic and visible sections of the theme park. Greezed Lightnin's impressive lights and flames will transport guests back in time with its iconic 1950's theme and thunderous hot rod inspiration.
Giving guests the ultimate adventure and adding even more value to the Season Pass, The New Revolution Virtual Reality Coaster has landed at The Great Escape for even more thrills this summer. Riders are transformed into co-pilots in their own fighter jets as they try to save the planet earth from an alien invasion. In this air-to-air combat, air crafts race throughout the city, following the exhilarating movements of the coaster, zooming past drones, seeking out the mothership to destroy it completely. This elite fighter squadron experience will make its debut on the legendary Steamin' Demon roller coaster located in Ghost Town.
As a proud distinction, The Great Escape will become home to the Northeast's first inverting Virtual Reality Coaster featuring Samsung Gear VR headsets, guests are transported into a realistic 360-degree virtual world perfectly synched to the drops, inverted loops, and powerful twists and turns of the Steamin' Demon. The New Revolution Virtual Reality Coaster is a fully immersive, virtual reality attraction, inclusive for free with your Season Pass and Great Escape admission ticket.
Look out for the newest addition to the theme park to open its doors, Charley's Saloon is the newly renovated Sports Bar concept in Ghost Town serving up refreshing fun in a welcoming atmosphere.
