"Wonder Woman is one of the world's most iconic DC Super Heroes and we are thrilled to add this action-packed ride bearing her name," said park President John Wrinkler. 

The  Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth can seat 40 riders. It's bound to give them a feeling of weightlessness at 172 feet in the air, as the floorless seats leave their feet dangling while whirling through the sky. 

The Six Flags Great Adventure park is scheduled to open on Friday for the 2019 season.
