UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — Don’t wait to experience Six Flags America’s new seven-story, Bourbon Street Fireball rollercoaster. WTOP’s John Aaron takes you along for the ride.
The 10th coaster at the park was opened on Thursday and is a loop coaster that seats 24 passengers, spinning riders in a pendulum style 360 degrees, around and around for roughly two minutes.
Fittingly, the coaster resides in the Mardi Gras section of the park.
Watch first-person video from the coaster below and listen to Aaron’s report from mid-ride above.
