Hey guys, today I was at the media event for Batman Backwards and took a few pics and an rider-cam video with a friend. This is my first trip report ever, and my first media event ever so I was a little on edge, but when I got there I was surprised how chill and relaxed the whole thing was.

The weather was over-cast and on and off rain the whole time. (perfectly ominous for Batman) We got there and rain was pouring down. We checked in, and went to the station to wait for the first ride of the day. It was so weird seeing an empty station, but we rode a few times, did our POV. Then we took a break, took some pictures and ate. In the tent there was BBQ sandwiches, corn dogs, mac and cheese, and some more sides. Then we went back for a few more rides, talked to a local news man and left. Overall the event was relaxing super fun and just awesome.

My overall thought of the ride was that is was very different from its original. If anything its almost less and more intense in different ways. Going forward, I usually grey out on the bottom of the first loop, but it was very smooth, and no grey outs for the whole ride, but it was more intense in that the twists and turns felt more defined, and I guess "twistier", and the feeling in the loops and zero-g roll are indescribably awesome! So here are some pics I took, again this is my first ever photo report, so they might not be the best quality, and we were only allowed to be in the parking lot, so I couldnt get lots of angles. The on-ride video will come soon!

I am so jealous of how cool your Batman looks. SFGAm is stuck with Yellow Batman.

Blue batman is cool. I havent been on it backwards yet but from what I've been told and what I've seen online it seems most people like the traditional forward facing batman
Don't worry, it's an emergency! I'm Chuck Norris

I wouldn't trade the Blue batman for anything, but I have to say after visiting SFGAM, The yellow actually looks really good in person I thought, plus your station seemed cooler and better themed with the TV monitors etc.

I'm excited for SFOG. I highly prefer the backwards version of batman... Coming out of the zero-g roll in the last row almost gave me orgiastic scream.
