10 New Rides and Attractions That Are Going to Make 2015 AWESOME

6. Justice League: Battle for Metropolis

Parks: Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis

Though characters from the Justice League have been the inspiration for roller coasters at Six Flags for many years, it looks like this DC-powered team is finally getting its own 3D dark ride at two Six Flags locations: Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis. This attraction will see guests facing off against famous bad guys like the Joker and Lex Luthor in order to save imprisoned heroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. You can check out a video preview below. 

7. Voyage to the Iron Reef

Park: Knott’s Berry Farm

Voyage to the Iron Reef  is a new dark ride at Knott’s Berry Farm that will be an interactive shoot ‘em-up style ride, allowing guests to use special blasters  and face off against the Queen of the Kraken, who developed a taste for metal and is attempting to devour all the attractions at Knott’s Berry Farm. This new attraction boasts 600 feet of track that take guests through 11 different scenes and uses 4D technology to deliver an immersive experience.  Interestingly, the story will reportedly change depending on the actions guests take during the ride, making this one you’ll have to ride (and ride again) when it debuts in 2015.

8. Laff Trakk

Park: Hersheypark 

Laff Trakk is a funhouse-themed indoor spinning coaster that will  reach a top speed of 40mph and will feature black lights and glow-in-the-dark show elements.  The ride will of course offer a thrilling experience for guests but will also pay tribute to the five funhouses that have called Hersheypark home over the past 80 years. You can check out a POV video below. 

 

9. Fast & Furious: Supercharged

Park: Universal Studios Hollywood

Not strictly a ride itself, Fast and the Furious: Supercharged will be a new drive-through segment added on to the existing Universal Studios Hollywood backlot tram tour. This new ride segment will take guests through a 50,000-square-foot show building that combines a motion-based simulator platform as well as a 400-foot-long tunnel-like movie screen (which will features film actors from the Fast & the Furious film series) for an extremely immersive experience.

10. Paint the Night parade

Park: Disneyland 

Though Disneyand has not confirmed that Hong Kong Disneyland’s Paint the Night parade will be making its debut at the park next year, several well-placed sources have said that floats for this new parade are being readied, and this new parade will be unveiled as part of the Disneyland 60th anniversary celebrations. Rumors suggest that the Disneyland version of this parade will be longer, with more floats, but will retain the style (and interactivity) that made the Hong Kong version such a success. You can check out a video of the Hong Kong version (courtesy Attractions Magazine) below.

Interesting how Cannibal, North America's, and Possibly the World's, Record Breaking Tallest (208ft) Inverting Steel Coaster with the Steepest Beyond Vertical Drop (116 Degrees) was left off this List.
