Missouri's Coaster Capital


Fly Like a Bat. We Provide the Wings.

BATMAN The Ride will show you what it feels like to be the ultimate caped crusader, on this deeply intense 50-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. At first the lovely park grounds of GOTHAM seem peaceful enough, but decay and crime start to creep in the further you go. You’ll journey deep into bat cave, tricked out with all the latest high tech gear of Bruce Wayne Industries. But there’s only one piece of equipment that matters right now, and that’s the steel inverted beast you are about to board, blasting off into the sky over GOTHAM.

As you load into your chair hanging from an overhead track, that you’re about to fight crime with your feet just dangling free in the air.

Following an 11 story climb to the top of the lift, brace yourself for a full 360 degree loop right off the bat. You’re a global superhero, you don’t need to warm up. After escaping that obstacle, now there’s a zero-G roll, then a second loop waiting for you about ten seconds later! Next up you’ll be pounded by a double set of outside helixes with enough G-force to make you scream in slow motion. How do a whopping 4 G's sound? Because that’s what you’ll be taking right about now. All in all, you’ll face a mind-warping five inversions.

Now 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 twists that will grind you into submission just like the criminals of GOTHAM CITY.

Key Features
Ride features five "head-over-heels" experiences, as trains travel on the outside, rather than the inside of the loops, with ski-lift-style coaches, where the floor drops out from beneath the riders' feet
