VALLEJO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#BATMAN80lt;/agt;–Six
Flags Discovery Kingdom
, the Thrill Capital of Northern California,
in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC —
today announced the opening of the park’s most innovative roller coaster
to date, Batman: The Ride. On this new, state-of-the-art thrill,
riders are suspended outward on either side of the track as the cars
flip continuously throughout the experience. The cutting-edge coaster
made its official debut during an exclusive, midnight opening event,
attended by throngs of excited guests who were among the first to
experience this groundbreaking roller coaster. Batman: The Ride is
the park’s 11th coaster, more than any other theme park in
Northern California.

“As the world leader in thrills, Six Flags continues to raise the bar to
deliver the most unique and innovative experiences in the industry,”
said Park President Don McCoy. “Batman: The Ride is a game-changer and
is the perfect headliner for the DC Universe area of the park, which
already features an incredible collection of rides and attractions based
on the world’s most iconic Super Heroes and Super-Villains.”

Riders on this 4D wing coaster experience sensory overload as they flip
head-over-heels at least six times along a weightless, tumbling journey
with unexpected drops and vertical free-falls. Other highlights of this
adrenaline-pumping coaster include:

  • One-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring smooth,
    head-over-heels free-fly flips, giving guests the feeling of
    weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional
  • 4D winged vehicles that extend outside of the track and seat eight
    riders per vehicle;
  • Face-off seats that allow riders to face each other as they tumble
    head-over-heels; and
  • A 120-foot-tall, 90-degree vertical lift hill and two beyond 90-degree
    “raven” drops giving the sensation of freefalling.

Batman: The Ride is now open to the public and makes its home in
the all-new DC Universe area of the park which features an
incredible lineup of DC-branded attractions including: Wonder Woman
Lasso of Truth, Superman Ultimate Flight, The Joker, Harley Quinn Crazy
Coaster, The Penguin Ride,
and the newly reimagined The Flash:
Vertical Velocity.

The area also offers a host of new food, shopping and entertainment
options. Guests can pick up Super Hero and Super-Villain t-shirts and
swag at The Daily Planet, The Joker Funhouse Shop, or the new Gotham
City Gifts. For those super appetites, Quick Quenchers Refill Station,
and Big Belly Burger, with mobile ordering, will be ready with hot,
delicious food and icy cold beverages.
