Backwards Batman Opening This Spring at Six Flags Over Georgia

Six Flags is continuing to get their money's worth out of the special backwards trains they had designed for their Batman inverted roller coasters!

This Spring the trains will open at Six Flags Over Georgia, changing their 1997 instillation of the popular coaster into a backwards experience.  The limited run of the backwards trains will debut with the park's opening on March 14, 2015.

“We are excited to offer our guests an incredible and gravity-defying ride on one of the park’s most popular attractions,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties park president Dale Kaetzel. “This twist is the first of several new experiences coming this season to Gotham City.”

Batman: The Ride at Six Flags Over Georgia
Since Batman: The Ride opened at Six Flags Over Georgia the coaster has given more than sixteen million rides, and is now ready to give riders a new experience.  The trains will navigate the coaster's ten story lift hill, top speed of 50 miles per hour and five inversions - all backwards.  The experience has been described as an intense, but fun way to experience a coaster we are all pretty familiar with.

Batman: The Ride Backwards will join two new Gotham City additions that will open later this Spring.  The inverting Joker Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn Spinsanity will both breath new life into the park's Gotham themed section.
