Revisiting The Debut of Adirondack Outlaw at The Great Escape



Yee-Haw! A new high-flying fugitive is on the loose at Six Flags The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor in Lake George, New York. On July 8th, 2021 the park held Media Previews for the grand opening of their newest thrill ride, Adirondack Outlaw! Here's a look back to when this Thrilling addition debuted.

This towering ride was the centerpiece of the largest update to the Ghost Town section of TGE in almost 20 years. Standing 16 stories tall, Adirondack Outlaw spins riders in a large vertical circle both forward and backward at over 50 miles per hour while simultaneously swinging and flipping them head-over-heels. But, before we go any further….

Thanks to TGE, we were provided with some awesome drone shots and multiple angles of on-ride footage. If you have a few minutes please take a ride with me.

Wait, There Was Even More Ghost Town Updates?


It’s hard to believe I know but there were. Other updates to Ghost Town included renovations and new menu options at Charley’s Saloon, the addition of Coaster Candy Express to Windy Bill’s Western World and the Red Garter Corral now features a great mural photo spot which has a giant Adirondack Chair front and center. This space can also be used for special events and provides a stylish entryway to Steamin’ Demon and ADK Outlaw’s joint new queue entrances.

Final Thoughts?


Adirondack Outlaw has easily answered #TheThrillIsCalling for The Great Escape. Represented by Ride Entertainment here in the US this Funtime Booster model towers over the park and can’t be missed. During my first visit for media previews and many since several guests and even employees have shared that it is now the most thrilling ride at TGE. Fun fact, the Steamin’ Demon was my first ever looping coaster so on a personal note it was also cool to see it get a new entrance as part of this Ghost Town update.


Thank you to our awesome host Jason and the entire Six Flags Great Escape Team for inviting us to attend the Media Preview. Somehow the rain held off and we had a blast riding TGE’s latest and highest thrill ride, Adirondack Outlaw! Now it's a can't-miss anytime I visit. No doubt The Bobcat will be too when it debuts later this year!
