DC Comics Super-Villains Help Boost Theme Park’s Coaster Resume
ARLINGTON, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, in partnership with
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, today announced
plans for an impressive expansion to the GOTHAM CITY section of the park
that will include three new rides in 2016. The area will become the
ultimate battle of BATMAN versus the Rogue’s Gallery of Super-Villains
with the opening of The Riddler Revenge, Catwoman Whip,
and Harley Quinn Spinsanity. These exhilarating rides will stand
alongside MR. FREEZE: Reverse Blast giving guests an epic dose of
villainous coasters after enjoying BATMAN™ The Ride in this portion of
“We are excited to offer our guests these premium attractions, thanks to
our partnership with the popular DC Comics brand,” said Steve
Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas park president. “These rides are an
excellent addition to our already impressive line-up and the expansion
of Gotham City will offer a uniquely villainous experience.”
The Riddler Revenge, Catwoman Whip, and Harley
Quinn Spinsanity will taunt and beckon guests as they make their way
through Gotham City. Characteristic of The Riddler’s flamboyant and
unpredictable style, the intriguing and oversized pendulum shaped ride — The
Riddler Revenge — will send guests on a dizzying journey by
swinging them back and forth while rotating counterclockwise. The ride
will propel 40 riders at speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour higher and
higher until they experience a feeling of weightlessness at 147 feet in
the air. On Catwoman Whip, 48 riders, sitting in rows of two,
will spin and tilt in a circular motion, building up speed as the ride
whips around, mimicking its namesake. Harley Quinn Spinsanity will
have riders spinning, twisting and swirling around and around in a
thrilling and classic ride experience for the entire family.
The Super-Villains are set to make their presence felt in Gotham City in
the spring of 2016. For more information about these new rides
