Soar on Batman's newest crime fighting device, Batman The Ride. This high-tech roller coaster soars 105 feet in the air at speeds reaching 50 mph. Suspended from the track in ski-lift style trains, you'll fly through hairpin turns, corkscrews and two loops with nothing but air beneath your dangling feet on this Swiss designed inverted roller coaster. This particular model was originally built and operated as Gambit at Thrill Valley in Japan and is a mirror image of the original Batman The Ride inverted coaster. In 2002, Six Flags purchased this roller coaster and it was relocated to Six Flags New Orleans for the 2003 season.
