The classic Batman the Ride features five inversions spread among 2,700 feet of track. The trains hit speeds of 50 miles per hour as they maneuver through the ride - now backwards.
“No matter how many times you have been on Batman The Ride nothing compares to the thrill of racing down ten stories facing the other direction,” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas park president. “It’s going to be an exhilarating ride, especially since guests will have no idea what is coming next with their feet freely dangling above and below as they twist and turn.”
The backwards trains are a limited time event, so make sure to get your rides in while they are at Six Flags Over Texas!
As for the park's upcoming 2015 addition, it appears as though work is well underway on a "spectacular" new attraction. The park has been working on the inside of the former 3-D theater, and some new footings have appeared in the lagoon for the park's river rapids ride - located directly adjacent to the back of the theater. Could some sort of dark ride be coming to the park? Or perhaps a new use of the theater with updated technology?
For now we will have to continue with speculation, as the park is keeping quiet. An official announcement of new attractions at all Six Flags properties is expected again this year at the end of August.
