Batman The Ride Construction Photos + New POV Animation

Things are starting to move very quickly at Six Flags Fiesta Texas with regard to Batman The Ride construction.  The compact roller coaster doesn't require footers spread across many acres like some rides, making the progress zip right along.  The park released this photo of the work site taken from high above, giving us a nice look at the positioning of the 4D Free Spin coaster.

You can compare the above image to this aerial of the section of the park where Batman will reside.  The coaster replaces a car ride and will utilize the buildings on the far left as the queue entrance.

Back down on the ground, Six Flags Fiesta Texas is happy to show off more of the completed footings.  Some of them are really massive - compare them to the people standing in the background to see what I mean!

It also appears as though most - if not all - of the track and supports for the new ride have arrived on site at the park.  These bright yellow pieces are the track rails that the cars will fly on.

As part of the ongoing promotion of Batman The Ride, a new point of view animation video was released last week.  It makes me a bit dizzy to think of how these spins would make me feel!  Check out the video on the park's Facebook page.
