Six Flags announces new coaster: Mardi Gras Hangover
Six Flags Great America announced yesterday that the record-breaking roller coaster set to open this year in Gurnee, just north of Chicago now has a name: Mardi Gras Hangover.
Six Flags says the loop coaster will open in the park's Mardi Gras-themed area and that Six Flags also will be introducing a new Mardi Gras festival late this summer.
It will include nightly shows, floats, beads and fireworks.
The 100-foot-tall coaster will take riders forward and backward on a giant loop.
You can see a picture of the new coaster on Six Flag Great America's Facebook page.
