ArieForce One is a steel roller coaster currently under construction at Fun Spot America Atlanta in Georgia. It is being manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction and is expected to open in 2022.

History

This ride was announced by the park on May 25, 2021.[1] A photograph of track fabrication shared by Fun Spot on June 17 revealed that the ride will be an I-Box installation.[2]

The name ArieForce One, a tribute to the founder of Fun Spot John Arie, was revealed in a press release on November 15, 2021, and announced the following day at IAAPA.[3]

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on January 6, 2022.[4]

Design

Elements

The park had hoped to have a theme based on one of Atlanta's professional sports teams, however, this did not work out. Instead, the roller coaster will have an American theme. One rail will be painted blue, the other red, and the supports will be painted white.[5] It will have a dive loop.[6]

Trains

2 trains with 5 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 20 riders per train.
