Construction continues on Batman: Dark Knight

Posted Wednesday, February 6, 2002 9:25 PM | Contributed by themeparkne

We now know the name of New England's new floorless, and the ride continues to grow. Batman: Dark Knight's vertical loop has been threaded and topped off. A lot more supports for the interlocking corkscrews and final turn are on site. Look for the zero-gravity roll to go vertical very soon!

I would've liked to look at more pictures, but, it was taking way too long for each picture to load. Are the files not compressed, or is the server slow?

Wierd, it's been very quick for me.  Anyone else having that problem?

Alright, someone please tell me why SF Inc is so obsessed with this new station design!  I mean, it was used on Batwing and X-Flight, and now this!  It get's boring after the second use!  First, SF can't be original with their coasters (READ:  B:TR) and now they don't even have original station designs!

I've  noticed the "original" design on the station.  Honestly all I can say... "Oh well."  I like the rapid fire elements B:DK is offering.  Vertical loop, high speed high banked turn right into a dive loop... very nice indeed.  Folks, quit the gripeing(sp?) about the names and looks of the coasters and just be glad that we get to ride these things.  But anyways, nice pics.  Wish I lived in New England... Oh, hang on.  I live in Ohio.  :)  Home, sweet home.

I don't care about the structure of the station, but rather what they choose to do with it... ie. themeing.

Is it me, or does that turn through the loop look very tight?
