New Terrifying "4-D" Batman Roller Coaster At Six Flags

batman-rollercoaster.gif

These are some renderings and a video of the new Batman: The Ride roller coaster opening at Six Flags Fiesta in Texas next year. It features two drops steeper than 90-degrees and six sections where your seat does 360-degree flips, independent of the tracks. You are going to puke so hard! Plus there's somebody sitting across from you so you might get to hit them. PROTIP: Load up on hotdogs before riding -- they come back up pretty painlessly. Popcorn and peanuts are a no-no.

The theme park described the ride as the "most exciting thrill ride" in its 22-year history.

"The Ride employs ultra-modern magnetic technology, which causes riders to flip head over heels with the feeling of pure weightlessness," the park said in a news release.

There's a video demo of what it's gonna be like to ride the coaster after the jump, which made me sick and it's not even in 3-D or anything. I dunno, maybe my roller coaster riding days are over. Besides, I find the shows at amusement parks way more interesting anyways. I'm lying, the day I can't ride a roller coaster and puke is the day I don't want to live anymore. I like to already be dry heaving by the time I'm pulling down the shoulder restraint.

Keep going for a couple more shots and the video.

Thanks to chichi and Logan, who agree half the fun of riding roller coasters is seeing the look on the ride attendant's face when they realize the mess you just made.

    How can it be considered 4D if it only goes up/down, forward/backwards? Wouldn't you need lateral movement to even make it move in 3D space to begin with? Its not even that. If you think about it, they managed to make loops possible along a 2D space by having them spin freely in place.

    Standard ride nonsense. The forth dimension I guess is the rotation of the seats. I've been on a few rides described this way so the only thing making this a 'world first' is whatever 'free fly' means in this context. If there's one thing America does well its claiming things to be some kind of world's first/only/biggest.

    So have marketing departments figured out how to implement other dimensions into their advertizing yet?

  • Jai Mico

    It looks like a puking ride, I have no intentions on getting on it

  • Stop using that hideous Batman Forever font, use the soundtrack from the Dark Knight Series and drop a clear link to the Comicon Snyder footage dammit! lol

    This exact ride already exist in Six Flags Magic Mountain (Valencia, CA). X2 (formerly known as X). It's been around for nearly 7 years now. I remember when it first came out as X, the line was ridiculously long and it would constantly break down. Looks like they managed to fix it all when they switched to X2.

  • MustacheHam

    This ride looks like it was designed by a child with devious intentions. :B

  • Fred

    Looks a lot like the Green Lantern ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Undoubtedly one of the most unpleasant rides I have ever been on. Had me physically seeing stars at the end as if I had just smashed my head against a wall. That cannot be healthy. No more exciting or thrilling than when you used to hang from the monkey bars by your feet as a kid until the blood rushed to your head and you felt like you were going to pass out...

    I usually have no problems at all riding roller coasters. After riding that ride, my stomach was so upset that I was barely able to ride any coasters the rest of the day at the park.

  • Fred

    X2 is a far more vicious ride which also uses the freely rotating seats but it is also crazy fun. The Green Lantern one seems designed solely for giving unlicensed abortions.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Agreed, I can go on X2 over and over.

  • Sophie

    I would lose control of all bodily functions BUT soo want a go...somebody get me to Texas!!!!

  • Swan

    Awwww... San Antonio :\

  • JJtoob

    So how is Batman related to this, other than the name of the ride?

  • Fred

    Clearly you've never read that comic where Batman gets tangled in power lines and spends an hour flailing wildly back and forth...

  • Jenness

    HA!

  • JJtoob

    You got me! LOL

  • Because the track is yellow. Duh!

  • JJtoob

    So is my urine (yeah, I know I have to drink more water), is my urine trademarked by Batman too? LOL

  • Dimitri

    I like how it says BEYOND. Get it? Beyond? lol fuck.
