New Batman 4-D Ride Looks ‘Crazy’
At Holidaysafe, we love a good adrenaline-rush just like the next person, but this new Batman-themed ride from the Six Flags theme park company has us quaking in our boots.
The Six Flags Fiesta Theme Park in Texas has announced a brand new ride which will be totally unique, one-of-a-kind and set to attract millions of thrill-seekers and film buffs in the near future.
Batman: The Ride is a 4-D wing coaster which doesn’t only take you along the 360° tracks, swerving this way and that, but also flips you at least six times throughout your journey. Six Flags, the theme-park chain corporation note on their website that the ride ‘thrusts you into a totally immersive, high-speed Gotham City adventure’, quoting that the ride is ‘a mind-warping thrill-coaster loaded with special effects and cutting edge construction. The utterly innovative design of the ride delivers a brand-new coastering experience that is the only one of its kind in the world.’
Aiming to take you along the tracks in true caped crusader style, the imposing track frame allows vehicles to travel up a 12-story lift before being released suddenly onto the tracks. The rollercoaster is among one of the first ‘4-D free-fly roller coasters’ – where riders’ seats spin around independently of how and where the car is headed.
Try unleashing your inner Batman; the ride also includes beyond-vertical free-falls, over 90° and six head-over-heel spins, and magnetic fins add to the Batman experience. In fact, the entire ride uses new patented magnetic technology to create smooth movements and the feeling of weightlessness for Six Flags visitors.
Just watching the promotional video is enough for potential riders to feel their stomach flip and the way the car makes its way along the first section of track is enough to make the weak-stomached feel queasy. The ride is set to open in 2015 in San Antonio, Texas.
Are you brave enough to take on the multiple spins, free-falls and terrifying turns that this ride involves?
