History

Skull Mountain officially opened on June 3, 1996. It is an indoor steel roller coaster that is great for the younger ones.

A frequently asked question about this ride is "Is this ride completely dark?" And the answer is no. When you are going up the lift hill, if you look to your right you can see all of the track. It's kind of like your bedroom at night, it's dark but your eyes adjust.

In August 2016, Six Flags announced that Skull Mountain would receive a virtual reality upgrade for Fright Fest. The ride would show a film called Rage of the Gargoyles and it was being billed as "the world's first fully immersive gaming experience".[2]
