Six Flags getting 17 story pendulum ride

U.S. & World

A Six Flags amusement park in Texas unveiled plans Thursday for a new ride that will feature a giant rotating disc, lots of speed, and extraordinary heights.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio says the Joker Wild Card promises to be the fastest ride in park history. The Joker Wild is a giant, rotating disc that will fly 17 stories into the air and 75 miles per hour.

The pendulum swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise. As riders swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of weightlessness 172 feet in the air.

The Joker Wild Card will debut Summer of 2019.
