In just under 3.8 seconds you'll go from a complete stop to 70 miles per hour on Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast, but adding to the thrill, you'll be launching backwards! A high-tech electromagnetic launch system accelerates the train through a 190-foot tunnel, giving it the momentum to climb up and through a top hat loop, a 180-degree over-banked turn, and then ascend a 236-foot tall, vertical tower. A second electromagnetic system will kick in to help drive the train up the tower, while riders stare straight down at the ground below. Once the train reaches the top, it's released, reversing direction, and free-falling straight down to repeat the entire course this time traveling forwards.
This is a mirror image of the Mr. Freeze roller coaster that is located at Six Flags St. Louis.
