I got the opportunity to try the new VR this past weekend, and it was awesome! I love the gaming aspect of it, because it makes the whole ride a video game. The graphics are so much better. My highest score was 22,840.

So does anybody know what the stadium you can see from the top of NTAG is used for?

I'm not sure how Riddler's Revenge has performed during the summer but I was a little dissapointed when I rode this past weekend.
For some reason the ride cycle wasn't getting the full swing.
Right as it was getting close to 90 degrees the ride cycle was over.
Pretty tame ride I got and I noticed all cycles doing the same. Has anyone noticed or has it always been this way?

How does this compare to an attraction like Toy Story Mania?

Toy Story Mania destroys Six Flags' VR coasters. It's not even close. But you would expect that, because Disney is much better than Six Flags. ;)

Sorry you had a bum ride, it's been down awaiting repairs and just re-opened so I would imagine they are still working on a few things.

That's the concert area in the park. They still have a few concerts a year there I believe.
