Batman: The Ride

Batman: The Ride logo

THE OVERVIEW
 
After entering through the Gotham City portal, visitors stroll through Bruce Wayne's beautiful landscaped Gotham City Park, complete with ornate scultures and an ongoing concert of nature sounds symphony. As unsuspecting guests venture further peacefulness of Gotham City Park is suddenly disturbed by unsettling noices in the streets, which are now controlled by Batman's arch enemies. Visitors will encounter a crashed police car, a broken fire hydrant and other evidence of crime in the streets. Once in the underground tunnels beneath Gotham City, visitors will finally escape through the Batcave to be whisked away by Batman's newest device, Batman: The Ride!

Batman: The Ride combines state-of-the-art roller coaster technology with Batman movie magic. Suspended from the track above in skilift-style chairs, riders fly at intense speeds countless times over the outside of hairpin turns, vertical loops, a corkscrew, and one-of-a-kind zero-gravity heartline spin with nothing but air beneath your feet!
