Six Flags Enhances Monorail

Anyone familiar with theme park history knows that Walt Disney changed themed entertainment forever when he debuted the Alweg-Disneyland monorail in 1959. Other theme parks around the world followed suit and added their own single-rail transportation to their parks. It would also become a staple of World's Fairs for years to come.

If one rail (like the monorail) is good, isn't two rails twice as good?

After years of research, planning, design, development and crashes, 6 Flags is announcing the Duorail!


I am pleased to announce that all 6 Flags parks across the country will implement a strikingly new, safer and more fun mode of transportation!

Instead of one track, like the ancient and ineffective monorail, the Duorail will provide a luxury approach to getting around your local 6 Flags park. Imagine the comfort and stability that two rails provide! No more wobbly monorail rides or frightening single-beam tracks--the Duorail is the future!

6Flagineers spent countless years working with CAD designers and focus groups to arrive at the design of the Duorail technology.


Looks pretty amazing, doesn't it?

    You've got to hand it to Six Flags. Adding a 2nd rail to the Monorail is brilliant. They've certainly improved on the Disneyland concept with their Duorail.

    This 'duorail' sure does look comfortable and innovative. If only Disneyland had one, say, that circled the park...or made one all sleek and futuristic to zip around near the Autopia....

    Hi !

    The big Disney piece of news of the day is the new nighttime spectacular Disney Dreams at Disneyland Paris! It's an awesome show, far more exciting than those Six Flags Stuff.

    This was a top secret project. After 50 years here at sixflags we perfected the duel line track only problem the trains didn't go very far on the single rail. Our 100 year locomotives have all the latest gps devises so we allways know were we are at . Nothing like getting lost in your own park.

    Fell off my chair laughing at "DuoRail". Can easily imagine the boardroom meetings championing the slogan "two tracks are better than one!"

    Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Fiesta Texas already have duorail, and I think that SFSL and SFGAm do too, so they don't need a new one.

    (For one moment, I thought you were going to tell us that SFMM had rebuilt their monorail.)
