  1. Theme Park Coverage also posted a POV, which I think is the one Jordan M. was talking about, given to them by MW, you can also see people riding it (with no head bashing) and the smooth finish thanks to magnetic brakes.

    That video (

    ) has the POV provided by Movie World and my own footage (filmed with permission) of Amber riding for my GCParks site.

     

    The full update can be seen on my blog.

     

    The full video of Amber riding can be seen on

    with a small plea for TPR to return to AUS.
  2. As ambe_bambe said we both attended the Media Event today, currently writing a blog post detailing the ride and the POV with ambe_bambe will be up shortly.

     

    On board audio is not yet working but otherwise the ride appears complete.

    Warner Bros. Movie World Launches

    Arkham Asylum – Shock Therapy!

     

     

    OXENFORD, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA (7 April 2012) – Warner Bros. Movie World on Australia’s Gold Coast, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, today launched Arkham Asylum – Shock Therapy, an electrifying new coaster experience.

     

    Following some terrifying modifications to the 17-year-old Lethal Weapon coaster, the new ride experience will have thrill seekers harnessed into the Ivy League of Insanity, reaching speeds of up to 85km and pulling 4.2Gs.

     

    Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Executive Officer Tim Fisher said, “Arkham Asylum’s victims will be begging for mercy as they take on this insane new ride experience, featuring five gut-wrenching inversions and sophisticatedon board audio.

     

    Guests will endure a ride experience like no other on the world’s first Arkham Asylum coaster as they are strapped into a brand new innovative train with awesome upper body movement like never before.

     

    “Only the bravest of riders will enter the Asylum to face one of the most demented criminal minds on the planet, The Joker, as he attempts to infect all of Gotham City with dangerous monsters,” Fisher added.

     

    Guests can get their dose of shock therapy on Arkham Asylum – Shock Therapy from today, but beware; only the craziest of patients should dare to enter the realm of extreme insanity. Arkham Asylum – Shock Therapy is the first roller coaster ever based on a Batman video game, the hugely popular Batman: Arkham Asylum game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

     

    With a host of exciting new attractions and shows recently opened, including the new GREEN LANTERN Coaster at Movie World and SpongeBob ParadePants at Sea World, the Local’s VIP Pass is the best way to experience the ultimate theme park fun while getting the best value for money.

     

    The Local’s VIP Pass provides unlimited entry to Sea World, Movie World and Wet’n’Wild Water World until 30 June 2012 for the incredible price of just $79.99.

  3. Perhaps this topic should be split off to cover the new theme/trains for the upcoming Arkham Asylum: Shock Therapy.....

     

    As somebody who has seen the trains in person I am fairly impressed, the buttons on the restraints actually allow the restraint to release (once you have returned to the station)
