Ride Review: Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for 2017

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has been entertaining guests for years. And in a park filled with gut wrenching roller coasters Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth might have just become the most thrilling ride at the park! This exhilarating attraction is tucked in between fellow DC theme and newer fan favorites Superman Ultimate Flight & The Joker and in my opinion Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth packs a bigger punch.

Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth is a pendulum style ride swinging guests as high as 15 stories at an insane speed of 70 MPH, and, oh yeah, also spinning them at the same time. It felt even faster than it was, tears shot out of my eyes and the adrenaline had my stomach turning multiple times. I take pride in myself as having an iron gut and riding these kind of thrill rides with ease but even I walked away a little wobbly legged. And I loved that!

Besides getting to preview the ride a few times, three actually, there was a nice ribbon cutting ceremony with park president Don McCoy and the Amazonian warrior princess herself Wonder Woman. “Get ready for a thrilling, wild new ride that will exceed all expectations,” said Don McCoy, park president. “Imagine propelling through the air, while concurrently spinning and reaching great heights at the same time. We welcome this iconic Super Hero to our growing line-up of DC- branded attractions.”

Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth highlights include

  • 40 riders seated facing outward around a large saucer that propels at speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour;
  • The ride swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise; and
  • As guests swing higher and higher, they experience a feeling of weightlessness as they climb 147 feet in the air.

Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth is sure to become an instant fan favorite, I guarantee that. So if you think that you can muster up the courage of a DC super hero to ride this, then Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth is definitely for you!
