History[edit | edit source]
The ride was going to open in 1992 at Six Flags Fiesta Texas as Wacky Twister, but the plan was scrapped. However, it opened four years later as Joker's Revenge on May 10, 1996. It had a funhouse queue line, as well as a chicken exit in the station that guests could use if they chickened out during the final moments before boarding the ride. During the later years, the coaster became rough and faced mechanical issues. Joker's Revenge was closed in 2001 and did not operate at all during the 2002 season. The ride was dismantled at the end of Summer 2002. The funhouse remained until Summer 2006 when it was replaced Pandemonium. The queue bridge was also reused.
The ride was moved to Six Flags New Orleans, where it opened on April 13, 2003. It operated for two years. It closed with the park just before Hurricane Katrina struck on August 26, 2005 and is now standing but not operating.

Ride experience[edit | edit source]
As the train rolls out of the station, riders are pulled 79 feet up the chain lift hill. Riders then drop 69 feet at 40 mph. After the drop, riders approach a vertical loop. This is followed by a double corkscrew and a helix. The trains hit the final brake run and return to the station.
