Firebird was the first roller coaster designed by Swiss designers – Bolliger & Mabillard. This stand-up roller coaster operated at Six Flags Great America for 21 years before being moved to Six Flags America. In 2019 the ride was renamed Firebird and the original stand-up trains were replaced with new floorless trains changing the ride experience. Instead of standing, riders are now seated in a floorless train with nothing between your feet and the steel track below.
