Dare Devil Dive is a steel roller coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia. Designed by German company Gerstlauer, Dare Devil Dive is based on the company's Euro-Fighter model, and features a 95-foot (29 m)-tall vertical lift hill, a 95° first drop, three inversions and a top speed of 52 miles per hour (84 km/h). It is also the first Euro-Fighter to debut a new lap-bar restraint system, replacing the more common over-the-shoulder harnesses.
This is the second attraction to carry the "Dare Devil Dive" name in Six Flags Over Georgia's history. In 1996, the park added a Skycoaster attraction to its Cotton States section that was named "Fearless Freep's Dare Devil Dive". That name was inspired by a Bugs Bunny cartoon, High Diving Hare, in which Yosemite Sam attempts to coerce Bugs Bunny into performing a high-diving act when the show's star, Fearless Freep, is unavailable. In recent years, the park has renamed the attraction simply as "Sky Coaster.
Like other Euro-Fighter models, Dare Devil Dive features a vertical lift hill, in this case 95 feet (29 m) in height.Upon reaching the top, the car drops at a "beyond-vertical" angle of 95°, with the track curling slightly back under the top of the lift before leveling out.Unlike the other models, Dare Devil Dive uses a newly-designed lap-bar restraint system, making it the first in the World to deploy it.The 2,099 feet (640 m) of track includes three inversions.
Exiting the brakes, the train makes a U-turn to the left, swinging around a "control tower" then crossing over the first drop before making another U-turn to the right through a tunnel, exiting into the final inversion, a heartline roll. After a final right-hand turn, the car reaches the final brake run and returns to the station.
