Now you can experience the freedom of flight on the phenomenal new flying coaster, Batwing. Defy the laws of gravity as you fly headfirst through eight inversions, twists and corkscrews at more than 50 mph. Leave the bonds of Earth behind and Take Flight on Batwing.
The Batwing adventure begins as passengers board the sleek, 24-seat train sitting four abreast and facing… backwards. The suspense builds as guests, secured by unique over-the-shoulder and knee harnesses, ascend to the top of an incredible 115-foot hill. Upon approaching the crest of the hill, passengers are gently reclined to a 30-degree angle only to find themselves suddenly facing the sky.
At the pinnacle of this suspenseful ascent the train quickly inverts into a 180-degree twist - turning average theme park thrill-seekers into high-flying heroes. Gravity pulls riders snugly against the safety harnesses as the sky disappears and they find themselves flying facedown, soaring first toward the ground and then into the sky.
