New artwork posted online has revealed further details of theme that will be used for Dare Devil Dive, the new rollercoaster coming to Six Flags Over Georgia in 2011.
News and rumor website Screamscape has posted the artwork, which further confirms that the Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter coaster will have a World War II fighter pilot theme. Theming elements will be based on this, with riders appearing to plunge through "near-miss" hoops of "fire" at the bottom of the ride's opening beyond-vertical drop.
Adding to the aerial warfare theme will be an air traffic control tower alongside the ride, pylons which riders will swoop between and a short tunnel towards the end of the coaster's circuit. A previously-released poster shows that Dare Devil Dive's cars will be themed as fighter planes from the World War II era.
Dare Devil Dive is due to open in time for the 2011 Memorial Day weekend (May 28-30), and will be targeted squarely at thrill-seekers. Although it features a relatively low top speed of 52 miles per hour, the inclusion of a vertical lift hill, the "beyond-vertical" drop and a number of other inversions are designed to help the coaster live up to its name. It will become the eleventh rollercoaster at Six Flags Over Georgia when it opens next spring.
