JACKSON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure plans to build a new roller coaster for 2015.

The theme park announced on Thursday Looping Dragon will join the park’s other thrill rides.

The park says 24 riders sitting in face-off seats will pitch forward and backward pendulum-style until the ride completes a full revolution seven stories in the air. Riders will be suspended upside down and then the ride will reverse direction.

Great Adventure opened what it calls the world’s tallest and fastest drop ride this summer. Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom hoists riders 415 feet in the air and dropped back to the ground at 90 mph.
