GURNEE (WLUK) -- The world's largest loop coaster is set to open this Memorial Day weekend at Six Flags Great America.

The Mardi Gras Hangover allows riders to experience multiple moments of weightlessness and hang-time while suspended upside down, 100 feet in the air.

Members will be able to try the new coaster out first on Wednesday and Thursday and Season Pass holders will get to ride it on Friday.

The ride opens to the public on Saturday, May 26.

Mardi Gras Hangover is the park's 16th coaster.
