Batman Looping Roller Coaster
Batman The Ride has five inversions, including two vertical loops, two corkscrews and a zero-G inline roll.

As unsuspecting guests venture further the peacefulness of Gotham City Park is suddenly disturbed by unsettling noise in the streets, which are now ruled by Batman's arch enemies. Guests will encounter a crashed police car, broken fire hydrant and other evidence of the growing chaos in the streets.

Once in the underground tunnels beneath Gotham City, guests will finally escape through the Batcave to be whisked away on Batman's newest crime-fighting device, Batman The Ride.

Batman The Ride Vertical Loop

Suspended from the track riders fly through the air, feet dangling free, experiencing sensations only felt on an inverted coaster.

After cresting the ten story lift hill, the ride begins with a 87-foot twisting dive into a seven story tall vertical loop, followed by a zero gravity one-of-a-kind heartline spin and a second 68-foot vertical loop.

Riders then proceed at full throttle through several twisting turns, a few quick dips and two more corkscrew inversions sending your feet for the sky, before the brake run.

The sensation created by an inverted coaster is very different from that of traditional roller coasters. It is a sensation that every coaster fan must experience. Batman The Ride boasts a top speed of 50 mph that is consistently maintained throughout the ride while giving riders the sensation of upto 4 G's.

Batman The Ride was built and designed by premier coaster experts Bolliger & Mabillard and was the first inverted roller coaster in Southern California. Today, Batman remains one of the most popular attractions at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
