I'm really glad Six Flags discovered there are more than 3 DC characters.

why not just get a glasses strap, if you're so dead set on wearing your glasses on a ride?

What I was trying to point out was how a single ride-op could say no glasses on a specific ride but then you go on a ride like Batman (which is WAY More intense than Mindbender) and the ride-op will tell you that it's fine to wear your glasses but then when you go back to Mindbender when the ride-ops change shifts, they'll tell you its alright. they used to tell you to not wear glasses on Dare Devil Dive but now they allow you to them now. It just kind of makes me so bewildered, one thing that I don't understand is why they allow you to wear glasses on Superman, the one ride where you MIGHT need to take your glasses off on. Six Flags needs to either ban glasses on all the rides or none of the rides. no more of this random chance.

Untrimmed going into that last loop would have airtime galore, but then you'd be unconscious pulling into the station :). Still one of the best rides ever to me (I've been riding it since it was new.)

I am quite glad that the trims were on otherwise, that loop would have been uncomfortable. but the downside is the lack of airtime.

I think the reason why it was on the day I went was due to the unseasonable heat, hopefully it won't be so bad in September :lmao:

I do wonder though why the bottom of the horizontal loop has such a rattle? is it due to the waterfall making the track rust in that part of the ride or is it just because of the amount of Gs? I've been wondering that for quite some time.

^ That 2nd horizontal loop has always been VERY forceful - I'm under the assumption it is from the G's.

I didn't realize they were tearing down the Batman arena! When I've gone this year I've been with my little guy and we haven't ventured into Gotham City as although he is only 3 - he wants to ride all of the big rides and gets upset that he isn't tall enough for Batman. He's just hit the 42" mark and I'm debating on taking him on Mindbender. Not because he would be scared (he is fearless,) but because of the super heavy g forces at the bottom of the "2nd loop - downward helix" and the last loop. Thoughts??

I'd love to see a Poison Ivy themed ride!

I think that the kid will be fine, he might even enjoy it Mindbender because of it, so i think that you should take him on the ride considering that it could be first ever looping coaster

The kid is tall enough and wants to ride and you're worried about some measly g-forces? What the hell kind of coaster dad are you? :lol:

You're all worried about rollercoasters? You've got a 3-year-old that's 42" tall, you should be calling the NBA. That's 95th percentile for a 4-year-old!

It's funny that you take the coaster community as an athletic bunch. :lol:

We're very athletic. We marathon coasters multiple times a year.
