The adventure on Batwing begins as passengers board the sleek, 24-seat train sitting four abreast and facing... backwards. The suspense builds as guests, secured by unique over-the-shoulder and knee harnesses, ascend to the top of an incredible 115-foot hill. Upon approaching the crest of the hill, passengers are gently reclined to a 30-degree angle only to find themselves suddenly facing the sky. At the pinnacle of this suspenseful ascent the train quickly inverts into a 180-degree twist - turning average theme park thrill-seekers into high-flying heroes. Gravity pulls riders snugly against the safety harnesses as the sky disappears and they find themselves flying facedown, soaring first toward the ground and then into the sky.
