That's not just a simple "laying pavement" job. You've got significant changes in elevation and terrain challenges which would require some excavation. Look at it from the perspective of where the path would start from by Catwoman:

There has to be a financial incentive for the park to create something like that and as Zand said, it would be diverting people AWAY from all the food / games / shops that you otherwise would have to walk past. No way the park is going to invest capital into something that will most likely result in a net loss for them.

I don't like this new Supergirl ride. I wanted a Grid ride to open across from Cyborg Hyper Drive, like how GAdv opened a Cyborg ride across from Justice League (where Cyborg also appears.) Is Grid seriously not that notable? HE'S CYBORG'S ARCH-ENEMY, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! You've got rides themed to The Joker all the time, why does Grid get the short end of the stick? His physical self only appeared on the queue signs and not in the actual ride! Six Flags, please show Grid some more respect (for example: turn up the volume on the ride so we can hear the lovely voice he has - which was a labor of love.)

I for one am shocked.

At risk of being stupider for making a serious reply, no, no one except you cares about Grid or even knows who he is.

Joker is the arch-nemesis of one of the biggest names in comic books. Joker has been portrayed in numerous TV shows and movies, too many to list.
Grid is the enemy of a 5-rate, also-ran, superhero who has appeared in one TV show and 2 movies, ever. Grid himself has been in zero movies, ever.

Be happy Grid got the mention he did on the Cyborg-themed rides that exist. Rides that only exist with that theme, mind you, because they've run out of real DC superheros to theme rides after.

Cyborg is a fucking A-lister in DC's eyes and he has been in many more TV shows than just Teen Titans. He's a member of the goddamn Justice League. Grid has been in a few video games and he will likely appear in the upcoming Cyborg movie. I'd rather have a Grid ride teaching the public who he is, just like how Cyborg is getting more and more prominence these days which was the REAL reason Six Flags themed rides after him.

And now you're gonna go after me because I said I wanted a Black Vulcan ride. Black Vulcan is nostalgic for all the people who watched Cartoon Network in its heyday and all the 40-50 somethings who watched Saturday morning cartoons. It can work.

Six Flags doesn’t spend money to teach people about characters. They’re only interested in making money off characters that are already known!

Hey anyone think that area around blizzard river is prime real estate for a potential coaster in the future, or are the trees a problem?
