On January 6, 2022 the ground breaking ceremony was held for ArieForce One, the new $13 Million Dollar Rocky Mountain Construction Roller Coaster which was initially slated to open in late 2022.

From initial reviews online, this new roller coaster is seriously impressing theme park fans. You can see the ride for yourself in the two videos embedded below, the first shows a backward POV where you can clearly see the rider reaction and the extent of the airtime moments at the end of the ride.
The second video, posted by Attractions Magazine, gives footage all around the roller coaster as well as a POV video showing you the exact ride experience. It certainly looks like an amazing addition to Fun Spot America Atlanta's line up.
This POV was released at the beginning of the year which gave excited guests an idea of what they had in store when they ride this new roller coaster.
Owner and CEO of Fun Spot America, John Arie Jr. said when commenting on this new addition to Fun Spot America Atlanta, “The addition of ArieForce One is a HUGE milestone for our company and the first of many new Marque rides and attractions yet to come to the Fayetteville, GA park,”. He also commented saying "ArieForce One is a tribute to my father’s passion for flying, and with all of the airtime moments and weightlessness this RMC coaster provides, it is sure to be a HUGE success!”
Rocky Mountain Construction Director of Design and Engineering, Jake Kilcup said “As a one-of-a-kind roller coaster, custom designed to the topography and layout of Fun Spot Atlanta, no other RMC roller coaster has this combination of elements. The Raven Truss Dive and the Zero-G Roll over the arcade are the first-of-their-kind in the world. In both ride elements the train travels through the center of a uniquely designed truss bridge while twisting at Zero-G,”.
The key features of ArieForce One include:
- Intense ride elements including a steep, 83-degree first drop and the largest Zero-G Stall in America;
- Four inversions including a first ever Raven Truss Dive, two Zero-G Rolls and a 180-degree stall;
- 3,400 feet of RMC’s award-winning patented steel Ibox track;
- A 154-foot lift hill;
- Reaching speeds up to 64 mph;
- Two state of the art 20-passenger steering axle trains;
- Themed queue lines based on John Arie Sr’s boyhood passion for flight.
