Batman looks to be extremely short from that POV. A lot shorter than I thought it'd be.

It is shot.... But I think it will last a bit longer than the POV.

In other news, I feel like this thing is going to be built REALLY fast!

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Yes but you flip like 10+ times and dont even know youre on a track so it should be much worth it
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

Plus animated POV's are almost always shorter than the real ride.

Not entirely sure if this has been mentioned but Baynum has been hard at work making Superman bright and shiny again.

I can think of a couple DC themed coasters and one explosive coaster at Great Adventure that could use Baynum expertise!

they need to make their way over to SFOG. Goliath, Superman & especially Scorcher could all use paint jobs, such a shame that it's such a pretty park, but the paint jobs are lacking big time on some of the coasters.. Especially Scorcher & Goliath since you see those as you walk into the park.
Coasters: 121 ( 89 Steel, 32 Wood)

Top 10 Wood: 1 Lightning Rod 2. Goliath 3. The Voyage 4. Mystic Timbers 5. American Thunder
6. The Legend 7. Thunderhead 8. The Boss 9. Great American Scream Machine 10. The Beast

Top 10 Steel: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. 1305 3. Maverick 4. Goliath (SFOG) 5. Fury 325 6. Twisted Timbers
7. Millenium Force 8.Twisted Cyclone 9. Top Thrill Dragster 10. TN Tornado

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

A MCBR as on zac-spins could have been appreciable, though. It lengthen the ride-time without making it too intense, plus it builds anticipation for the second part.
