4D Total Mayem Coaster Coming to Six Flags Great Adventure

Total Mayhem freefly 4D wing coaster to debut at Six Flags Great Adventure in Spring 2016.

After being lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree lift hill, this 4D free-fly coaster will wreak havoc as riders flip head-over-heels at least six times during the ride. Total Mayem's layout will include exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane, along with unexpected drops as the cars tumble from one level to the next.

Wing seats up the thrills since riders will experience it all with no track above or below them – just the sky, ground, and adjacent Great Lake around them.

"We are thrilled to unveil one of the newest concepts in roller coaster engineering with Total Mayhem," said Park President John Fitzgerald. "Six Flags Great Adventure's world-renowned coaster collection will expand into the realm of insanity – or spinsanity – with this new, vertical coaster that delivers gravity-defying somersaults with utter unpredictability. It is the perfect addition to our dynamic line-up of award-winning roller coasters because this ride delivers next generation, cutting-edge thrills."

The unique design of Total Mayhem features:

  • Massive, imposing, floating and twisting I-box track frame in a unique two-tone design
  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring smooth head-over-heels free-fly flips providing guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track
  • 4-D wing vehicles that seat up to 8 per vehicle with a total of 5 vehicles
  • Face-off seats that allow riders to face each other as they tumble head over heels
  • A 120-foot-tall, 90-degree hill that is ascended by an elevator-style, chain link lift
  • Two beyond 90-degree "raven" drops giving the sensation of free-falling
