Six Flags' Coaster Contest

8 hour ride-a-thon kicks off 2010 season



     Six Flags' Coaster Contest
    Get in on the coaster action at Six Flags' opening this weekend.

    Six Flags is opening their 2010 season on Saturday, March 27 with a bizarre twist. 

    30 riders will compete to be the last man or woman standing after riding the Bizzaro coaster for eight hours in this truly bizzare ride-a-thon. The coaster is 142-feet tall and a top speed of 60 mph with seven loops. This coaster is not for the faint of heart -- or queasy stomach. 

    The three and a half minute ride is enough to make you green in the face, but diehard coaster junkies that can stomach the rough ride will compete to win the ultimate grand prize -- a VIP tour for four at Six Flags with a personal tour guide and front of the line access.

    That's if they ever want to see another roller coaster again. 

    This season at Six Flags, the season pass is a steal at $79.99. They are also bringing back favorites like the summer concert series and the Saturday night fireworks display starting in July.
