Gurnee, IL, USA (May 13, 2013) /PRNewswire/ — Go Big. Go Backwards! For a limited time only, the world’s first suspended looping coaster,BATMAN: The Ride, is more intense than ever when riders dare to take on an all new experience – going backwards!
As the roller coaster climbs the 10-story lift hill, riders will take in the full scope of BATMAN: The Ride’s track as they anticipate the adventure that lies ahead. The train will reach speeds of 50 mph and travel through 2,700 feet of track, all while maneuvering hairpin turns, vertical loops, corkscrews and a zero-g roll. The excitement is magnified since guests cannot see the maneuvers that await.
“BATMAN: The Ride opened for its 22nd season this spring by offering our guests an entirely different ride experience by going backwards. No matter how many times you have been on BATMAN: The Ride, nothing compares to the thrill of racing down 10 stories facing the other direction,” said Hank Salemi, Six Flags Great America park president. “You literally have no idea what is coming next. This is a tremendous new experience and one guests should take advantage of quickly since it will only be available for a limited time.”
Since originally opening in 1992, BATMAN: The Ride has given more than 28 million thrilling rides and reigns as one of the most popular roller coasters in the world. BATMAN: The Ride backwards launched on Saturday, May 4, the park’s opening weekend.
