Fly Like a Bat. We Provide the Wings.

BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT will show you what it feels like to be the ultimate caped crusader, on this deeply intense 55-mile-per-hour juggernaut that is definitely not for the timid. Show your strength and bravery as you take on GOTHAM’s criminal element. Step through the tall carved gates of Bruce Wayne’s favorite place, GOTHAM, to just kick back and relax.

Bruce Wayne Industries may be tricked out with all the latest high tech gear, but there’s only one piece of equipment that matters right now, and that’s the steel floorless beast you are about to board, blasting off into the sky over GOTHAM.

As you load into your chair, note how there’s something missing here – the floor. You’re about to fight crime with your feet just dangling free in the air. And there’s no track visible above you either – so when you take wing off the first 12-story lift and dive into a 110-foot drop, it will feel just like flying.

As you start your blaze down 2,850 feet of warping purple track, brace yourself for a full 360 degree loop right off the bat. You’re a global super hero, you don’t need to warm up. After escaping that obstacle, there’s a fully inverted roll, and then a second inversion – a hardcore dive loop that has you twisting down halfway through for a breathtaking 180 degree reversal.

Next up you’ll be pounded by banked curves, a zero-G roll, and a pair of bat-brained interlocking corkscrews with enough G-force to make you scream in slow motion. Did that all fly by really fast? That’s because, unlike on many coasters, there are no pauses here in between the action. It’s back to back tricks with a whopping five inversions.

Watch the ground under your dangling feet whip around as the city below flips over and over, through a tightly packed series of gravity-defying show-stoppers that will grind you into submission just like the criminals of GOTHAM CITY.

Take flight with the world’s greatest detective on a mysterious night chasing evil and soaring above the city!

The fog rolls continuously throughout the city full of noise and chaos, but, atop the Gothic steel structures, a guardian stands watch; the protector of GOTHAM CITY, the Dark Knight himself…BATMAN.

You escape the streets and climb to the upper floor of an abandoned warehouse on the edge of Demon District and grab a seat waiting for the caped crusader to arrive. Suddenly, the floor drops below your feet but something grabs and pulls you right out the side window and then high above the surrounding buildings.

As you reach over 100 feet in the air, you are thrown into the sky but instinctively take flight swooping down into a full loop and then soaring against the moonlight. The dark demons and criminal underbelly scurry around amongst the other nocturnal creatures as you dodge and chase them in and out of shadows.

Before you even have a chance to thank our hero for his help, he vanishes back into dissolving sky.
