Specific Type: 4D Free Flow Spinning Coaster
The state of Texas is known for the word “Big” and when it comes to theme parks and thrill rides, there is no exception. The state of Texas has great water parks, aquatic experiences, and of course theme parks. One of the major theme parks in Texas is Six Flags Fiesta Texas and in 2015, they opened up a world class, one of a kind coaster named Batman: The Ride. Now Six Flags is known for having many Batman rides, but this one is unlike any other that you have ridden. Batman: The Ride is a 4D free fly coaster that includes amazing special effects, jaw dropping drops, and a mind-warping experience.
The coaster began construction in 2014 and was ready for the 2015 season with fans anticipating the opening. One of the main differences of this coaster is the magnetic fins that allow the individual seats to flip over as you traverse the track. The coaster includes two beyond-vertical drops, 6 complete track inversions and a 12-story lift. The coaster also includes special effects including a full scale Batmobile, bat signal, and other Gotham goodies throughout the ride experience. The new interactive queue line and loading area explains the storyline for your mission as you wait in line. The coaster track is colored a bright yellow while the trains are colored black for a true Batman feel.
Batman: The Ride offers a much different experience than most wing coaster types. Batman: The Ride takes riders to a height of 120 feet, traverse a track length of 1,019 feet at speeds of 38 miles per hour. Many thrill seekers think this is slow, but the idea of flipping head over heels multiple times makes this a unique experience. The coaster was designed by S&S Worldwide. If you are brave enough to take the mission, join us below for a virtual tour of Batman: The Ride.
After mission specialists receive their duties, they progress through the queue to the station. Specialists will enter one of the five free spinning cars and prepare for the lift. The train lifts out of the station vertically to a height of 120 feet. At the top the train dips into a U shaped drop and after the second hump the train seats flip head over heels. After a couple of more dips while spinning, the train comes upon the first beyond 90 degree drop as the track goes under where you just were. The coaster now takes you through some speed hills while spinning and then into the second beyond 90 degree drop. Now the train flips you over and over as you go over W style dips and into the final flip drop before taking you back into the station
