First of all, click here

After you clicked on the first link, click here

The first link's photo shows the brake run of the ride without a roof over the brake section and the transfer track. The second link's photo shows the brake section and the transfer track with roofs.

When were the roofs added?

Sometime between 92 and 01?.... WHY?

I dunno.  all I know is that I started riding it after the coverings were added.  I wasn't "into" coasters until after that.  I believe that the first time I rode it was in 98 or so.

I believe it was 1993 or 1994 when the roof was added. 

Hard to imagine it now without that roof!

Hmm....not sure, but B:TR here at SFMM has had the roof over the brake fun since 96 when i first rode it, maybe it was about this time when the rest got roofs

The ride has always had the fully enclosed brake run and transfer area as far as I know.  I would bet that picture is from the off season right BEFORE Batman: The Ride debuted and they had yet to put up the brake shed.

No it was taken in the normal season because I can see people on it. If you look close enough you can see the sides of the seat are different colors from the people's clothes

I can't remember it ever not having the roof - and I know I rode it the opening year...or maybe the year after. That was a long time ago, kinda hard to remember. The first picture is coprright '92, so I am guessing shortly after that.

Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

The First year it didn't have a roof on it, I know this for a fact since the second year when I rode it there was a roof on it and it was kind of weird.

Also look at the date on the bottom of the picture its 1992 when Batman the Ride opened.
