Cahokia, other local firefighters get first rides on Six Flags' Fireball coaster

Watch firefighters from Cahokia, State Park Place and French Village as they experience Six Flags St. Louis' newest coaster, the Fireball. On Thursday Six Flags honored firefighters with a chance to ride the new roller coaster as part of their Heroes of the Heat promotion. The Fireball opens to the public on May 7 and features a single loop taking riders seven stories high and through a series of 360-degree revolutions, stopping upside down for some inverted hang time before reversing directions.
