Have you ever dreamed of catapulting through the air, weightless and grinning? Now's your chance!

Just in time for summer, one of our go-to amusement parks in New York (and beyond) has provided even more thrills for fearless visitors. In partnership with Warner Bros Consumer Products on behalf of DC, Six Flags Great Adventure just launched the world’s tallest pendulum ride, WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth. Are you daring enough to put this newbie on your summer bucket list?

The innovative attraction—perfect for fans of the empowering female vigilante—is an astonishing 17 stories high and features a spinning disk that can reach nearly 75 miles per hour as it swings back and forth between red, white and blue spires. With one ride on this pendulum, park-goers can channel their inner Wonder Woman as they reach insane heights and take a glimpse of breathtaking views. Daredevils will even be able to experience a feeling of weightlessness at 172 feet in the air. Yikes!

Sound  enticing? If so, Six Flags 2019 memberships and season passes are now on sale for those of us who never tire of adventure (and park perks). But, for those just want to simply sample the superhero-lifestyle, daily tickets are available for purchase starting at $52.99.

This summer, take a ride on the wild side and embody an icon! If you're still in search of something wild and crazy, have a gander at our list of favorite water parks in NY and the surrounding area.
