FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. — Atlanta’s newest roller coaster features a 154-foot climb, four zero-G inversions, the largest zero-G stall on a roller coaster in the United States and the world’s first Raven Truss Dive all at 60 miles per hour.

“The addition of Arie Force One is a huge milestone for our company and the first of many new marque rides and attractions yet to come to the Fayetteville park. As a one-of-a-kind roller coaster, custom designed to the topography and layout of Fun Spot Atlanta, no other roller coaster has this combination of elements. The Raven Truss Dive and the zero-G roll over the arcade are the first-of-their-kind in the world. In both ride elements the train travels through the center of a uniquely designed truss bridge while twisting at Zero-G,” said Fun Spot America CEO, John Arie Jr.

The Rocky Mountain Construction steel roller coaster soars over 3,400 feet of track, towering 15 stories and flying at speeds up to 64 miles per hour.

“Arie Force One is a tribute to my father and his passion for flying. We will have you believing you’re traveling into space with all of the airtime moments and weightlessness this RMC coaster provides,” said Arie Jr.

Arie Jr. said will experience the same thrills of flight and weightlessness that test pilots and astronauts feel on a ride.

Fun Spot America is in Fayetteville and features rides, go-karts, batting cages and more.
