Are Batmans the only Six Flag Inverts by B&M?

I know they also have vekomas, but are there any other B&M inverts in a Six Flags park?

You know, I think you're right! It surprises me though, because I don't think that the Batman layout is the end-all, be-all of inverts. It still shocks me when I hear they're putting in yet ANOTHER Batman clone. I'd much rather have Dueling Dragons or Talon than any of the Batmans.

Holy cow, you're right. I don't think there are any other B&M Inverted coasters at Six Flags without naming it ; Batman: The Ride. Six Flags should give a park a dueling Inverter like Dueling Dragons at a small park. (COUGH SFEG COUGH!)

Wow. You're right. How depressing! B&M are masters who deserve more showcase time than a 50-second ride.

That's really strange, they should have made different one's because B&M's creativity should be put to use.

And the worst part is, one of the Batman: The Rides is not B&M! (Vekoma SLC, SF Mexico)

Raptor at CP is a better clone choice. Why don't we see more of those? Apparantly 'Orochi' in Osaka, Japan is a Raptor clone. I've been on it and it wasn't NEARLY as fun as Raptor.

Batman is not as fun (or long and fast) as Raptor. So why doesn't Six Flags build Raptor-type B&M's?

Because the short Batmans are way cheaper to build and operate.

I think Montu's layout would be good for other parks. It has done great for Busch Gardens.

Batman's are also more compact and fit into almost any park.

Nothing against Batman clones though.. They are still one of the most intense inverts around. I prefer them easily over Raptor at CP.

Six Flags took a gamble with the prototype invert and realized that it was a success. I can see fully why they would install clones of this ride. Alot of prototypes (the original) dont usually take off in popularity but you have to admit that this prototype was genius and still is today.

If SF ever build a dueling invert it is sure to be called something like - Batman and Robin: The Ultimate Chilling Knight Flight Escape Ride.

Just a little interesting Batman clone question but...is the one at St Louis a mirror version of the others? Exact mirror?
At least all of the parks except SFMM kept the cop car (and none of theirs are full of bullet holes like the one at SFMM was.)
