Joker’s Jinx is a Premier Rides launched coaster featuring a “spaghetti bowl” track. With six cars seating two across in rows of two for a total capacity of 24 riders, the train launches to 60 mph out of the loading station and into a tunnel. It proceeds into a cobra roll and goes through a series of twists and turns, sidewinder and corkscrew. Without a mid-course brake run, it passes through a series of rings which resembles a giant slinky toy.
The 2,705-foot track is contained within a remarkably compact area. Of the four inversions, the corkscrew at the end – IMHO - is the best. It seemed to go fast and there was perceptible airtime. As to the launch, in the dark this is a blast!
While not exceptional, Joker’s Jinx provides a ride that is seamless, smooth and highly entertaining. 3 ½ out of 5 stars. . For more information about rides at Six Flags America, visit www.sixflags.com/america
