Onboard the latest Batman themed ride, The Dark Knight Coaster, Six Flags Great America claims guests will experience the ride of their lives. The story begins in the queue, venturing through demented hallways of twists, turns and hallucinatory images, guests are tormented by The Joker himself. Then as you set foot onto a distressed, vandalized train platform you board one of the four-passenger cars. From there it's your guess what awaits as you speed through six 180-degree hairpin turns, climb unseen hills and plunge into pitch darkness. The story concludes when you attempt to escape the terror with of course, the help of Gotham's Silent Guardian – Batman. For those less interested in the story, The Dark Knight Coaster is a standard "Wild Mouse" model roller coaster enclosed within a building.
