The construction of Batman: The Ride features:

  • The world’s first, one-of-a-kind onboard magnetic technology featuring six smooth head-over-heels free-fly flips providing guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track;
  • A 4D wing coaster that seats up to eight and has riders “face their fears” by allowing them to physically face each other as they tumble head-over-heels;
  • A 120-foot tall hill that is ascended by an elevator-style lift straight up;
  • Two beyond 90-degree raven drops giving the sensation of free-falling;
  • Five vehicles with eight passengers each;
  • A Bruce Wayne/Batman theme throughout the queue line featuring the Batmobile and Bat-Signal.

The ‘Justice League: Battle for Metropolis’ will feature:

  • An interactive queue line and loading area where guests will receive instructions, 3D glasses and a stun gun to stop the bad guys.

  • A nexus of new technologies to put guests right in the center of this interactive battle.
  • Lifelike animatronic super heroes designed by Sally Manufacturing, the industry leader in dark rides.
  • 3D graphics and film produced by Pure Imagination, the gurus of Computer Generated Imagery.
