Maxx Force is a steel launched roller coaster located at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, USA. After months of teasing from the removal of the Pictorium, Maxx Force was announced on August 30, 2018. It was manufactured by S&S Sansei Technologies, opening on July 4, 2019.
History[edit | edit source]
A passholder's preview was held on July 3. It officially opened a day later on July 4.
Design[edit | edit source]
Maxx Force is a compressed air launch coaster manufactured by S&S Worldwide which features 5 inversions, including the world's fastest heartline roll taken at 60 mph and the world's tallest double inversion, a dog tongue at 175 feet. The ride also features the launch with the highest acceleration in America, launching from 0 - 78 mph in 1.8 s (1.78 g's of acceleration).
Maxx Force's layout is very straightforward; after the intial 78 mph air launch, Maxx Force steps up into the 175 foot dog tongue, followed by a right-hand turn underneath the step up. Then it enters the 60 mph heartline roll, rising upwards into the maxx dive loop finale.
Trains[edit | edit source]
2 trains with 4 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 16 riders per train. The coasters trains are modeled after Formula One race cars. The 2 trains colors are red and black.
