Batman: Dark Knight Duration?

Saturday, February 16, 2002 3:29 AM
The press release (if you could call it that) of B: DK said that the coaster duration would be 2:20. Does anyone else believe this estimate? I think for only 2,600 ft. of track that this is a little strectched out. I believe it will only be about 1:30 for the whole ride. Can anybody else back me up?

That 2:30 second ride duration most likely includes the load and unload time as part of the ride duration.  So I don't think it's too far off.

Yeah I believe it's the cycle time, which means from the time the train dispatches from the station until the time it dispatches again from the station after it has completed it's course and unloaded and loaded guests.

B:KF would become the world's longest coaster at 10 minutes.

Sept. 11th 2001, Slayer released God Hates Us All. The song "Disciple" uncannily describes the events of that day, as well as the anthrax letters that followed.

What about laser at dorney park?  It takes an hour to get up the lift, and the loading time wasn't particularly fast, either when I went there.  The coaster is pretty small, though.

C'mon guys Lazer's lifthill may be pathetically slow (and it IS), but the ride itself more than makes up for it...another classic Anton masterpiece...just remember to keep your hands UP!
