Ragin' Cajun Ready to Spin at Six Flags America

This weekend marks the opening of Six Flags America's 9th roller coaster, Ragin' Cajun.  The ride is the last attraction to open in Six Flags America's new Mardi Gras themed section.  Earlier this spring the park opened the French Quarter Flyers, a new set of Larson Flying Scooters, along with several renamed, repainted, and refurbished existing rides.  The new area also features themed food and retail locations.

Ragin' Cajun is a spinning wild mouse style ride, where the individual cars twirl as they navigate the track.  Six Flags America has not yet had a spinning roller coaster, so Ragin' Cajun represents a new type of thrill for its guests.  The ride stands around 43 feet tall and has 1,378 feet of track.  The coaster originally operated at Six Flags Great America from 2004 through 2013.

SFAFans has a new photo gallery of the ride, along with some video of it in action.  Check that out at this link.
