Great Chase is a steel kiddie roller coaster located at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, USA. It replaced the former The Great Alonzo's Cannonball Coaster and is located in the Looney Tunes Movie Town section of the park. Although a ride of the same name exists at Six Flags New England, and previously Elitch Gardens, the New England version is a E&F Miler Industries family roller coaster, and the former Great Chase at Elitch Gardens is an Allan Herschell Company Little Dipper model.

Design

Elements

The ride begins when the train is pulled up the 13 foot tall lift hill before dropping into a helix and turn. Because the track is so short, the coaster sends guests through 3 times.

Colour scheme

Blue track and supports.

Trains

Single train with 6 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 12 riders per train.
