Six Flags Great America, Gurnee, Illinois, officially unveiled its new roller coaster to the world. Maxx Force is an air-launch coaster from S&S Sansei Technologies that rockets riders from 0 to 78 mph in just 1.7 seconds. That is the fastest acceleration on any roller coaster in North America.

After that launch, riders travel straight up in the air before hitting a double inversion and passing under the launch track. From there they travel upward into a barrel roll - twisting upside down at 60 mph. The last inversion takes riders right back into the station.
