Intense, Limited Run BATMAN™ Coaster Experience
Coming to Six Flags Great Adventure

BATMAN™: The Ride Backwards and El Diablo Headline 2015 Spring/Summer Season


JACKSON, NJ — March 24, 2015 — Six Flags Great Adventure, the world’s largest theme park, unveils a second thrilling roller coaster experience for 2015 as it flips one of its most innovative and adrenaline-charged coasters backwards for a limited time. The park also debuts its 13th roller coaster – El Diablo – during its 2015 season, which kicks off April 3.

BATMAN™: The Ride becomes even more intense as it undergoes a gravity-defying role reversal from July 4th weekend to Labor Day weekend. Guests can dare to take on an all-new experience on the world-famous suspended, looping coaster when its chair lift-style train is flipped 180 degrees on the track.

BATMAN™: The Ride Backwards Fast Facts:

Soar backwards, chair-lift style (beneath the track)
50-mph juggernaut
Five gut-wrenching inversions guests never see coming
2,700 feet of twisted track

Since opening in 1993, BATMAN™: The Ride has given more than 27 million thrilling rides and reigns as one of the most popular roller coasters in the world.

“The ride’s intensity is ratcheted way up,” said John Fitzgerald, Six Flags Great Adventure president. “Thrill seekers will not want to miss this limited-time opportunity to put their inner ‘super hero’ to the test.”

At least I can finally try out namtaB without having to travel very far. I'll have to head over there this year and give it a whirl!

Batman geeks will note the slight continuity error on the marketing material... :p

You mean the fact that they make it look like there are trees within the general vicinity of the ride?

Its the two different Bat logos, right? The classic for the ride but the new one on the suit? Not a Batman "geek" but thats my best guess.

Also: very excited for this. It's probably intense as hell, and I'm looking forward to every delirious second of it.

And with that the tour thankfully completes. That is unless that rebrand it as Htailog and Eripmav for La Ronde and Fiesta.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

In general, it's an okay time to go, depending on the weather. Operations were pretty average, food service was awful, etc. I'd say it's worth a visit to check it out without being packed, having not been for so long. Your call.


Where did you hear the rumor of Nitro being closed? sources?

I have not been to the park since toro first opened but planning on going opening weekend. Should I expect all rides to be open? Seems like it's still winter and with less then two weeks to go until opening is the park going to be ready?


Last year me and bunch of friends went opening day, everything was open except for Ka and Zumanjaro for obvious reasons. Lines were not too bad except mid-day they got a little hairy, and operations were smooth for the most part. It was generally cold and winter-y right up until opening day last year and out of nowhere we had this beautiful 70 degree day, so it was probably more crowded than it normally would have been. I'm sure it being the first riding day of the season has something to do with it, but looking back it was one of my favorite days @ the park all year. I wrote about it on my blog.

Still hasn't made its way to SFSTL. Kind of thinking it never will, which is kind of funny considering they tested the idea here first.
