ABOUT THE ATTRACTION:
Batman The Ride is a B&M Inverted Roller Coaster at Six Flags Great America. The coaster has 5 inversions and reaches a top speed of 50 mph. Although there are many Batman The Ride clones in the world, the one at Six Flags Great America was the first one to be built. This makes it the oldest B&M Invert in the world.
Opening Date: May 9th, 1992.
Bite-Sized Review: Batman the Ride is one of the most intense roller coasters at Great America. While it’s far from the most unique layout these days, it’s still an enjoyable and well-paced ride. The corkscrews in the second half have an extreme amount of “whip” to them, and make my legs go numb whenever I ride. The coaster has become a bit rattly over the years though.
ATTRACTION GRADE: 7/10
