Dean O'Keefe Gives Small Details On SFNE Ride

Saturday, September 15, 2001 6:52 AM
"Six Flags officials have not decided the identity of the new ride, O'Keefe said. But a description - a 120-foot steel roller coaster with top speeds around 50 miles an hour - matches characteristics of Batman the Ride, already in place at six Six Flags parks around the country.

Well, another Batman themed ride. Could Batman be taking a new shape, stand-up or floorless?

Or...

"matches characteristics of Batman the Ride, already in place at six Six Flags parks around the country."

Could be a inverted coaster, but just with a different layout, and with a Batman name.

120ft sounds like an inverted coaster. Someone made the comment recently that SFNE already has a Vekoma SLC, but my question would be, what does that have to do with anything? Most major parks have 2 inverteds of some sort, and most parks have more than one wooden coaster.

An inverted does make alot more sense than a floorless or a standup since both are usually 160ft+. But why would they make both inverted coasters right next to each other?I personaly hope its a standup.But 120ft is too smal and 2700ft is too short.Six Flags must have something up their sleeves

I hope its not another inverted!! And if it is, poor placement ( right next to the other SLC) Hopefully its a small floorless,or stand-up. I would love a chance to ride a stand-up, as I have never had the chance to get on one!

If it's an inverted, I really hope it's not another Batman! C'mon MATRIX!! Hopefully they will fill us in soon.

This is slowly becoming an arguement of semantics. An inverted coaster is an inverted coaster, complete circuit or not. Beyond that, just because there isn't a precedent for something doesn't mean it won't happen. No park had three launch coasters until this year, now PKD does indeed have three.
That said, although the stats sound like an inverted or B&M flying, I'd agree that it's probably a standup.

Yeah, I know what an inverted coaster is. I'm pointing out that in Todd's post he said he knew about Invertigos and regular inverted coasters in the same parks. Immediately there are 3 replies about parks with Invertigos.

If you look at the images I posted on my website, you'd see that the first image is an artist's rendering of a conventional lift hill.

If you look closely at the blueprints, you can see that there are about three areas which say 'themed walls.'  So it looks as if there is going to be 3 themed tunnels.  Clone or not, this themeing on this should be awesome.

Take a good look at Six Flags Worlds of Adventure because in a few years the Sea World side will look exactly like it does, a zoo.

Arent we forgeting about Batman Knight Flight? I think its going to be a floorless.

If the TPNE drawings are true, then it can't be an inverted or anything like that unless it is the first inverted with interlocking corkscrews.  I think we are forgetting those corkscrews.  This looks like it will be a sitdown or floorless unless it is the first stand-up with interlocking corkscrews.  Dueling Dragons kind of has interlocking corkscrews but those are two coasters.  If you take one away then it's just another inverted with a corkscrew in the middle of the ride.

Geese I fooled you all agian! An "INVERT" is a B&M design of the suspended coaster. I specifically said, try to find a park with 2 inverted/suspepened looper that is accually in the same park that is a conventional coaster desgin. I just new a bunch of people would say that a bunch of parks had mutiple inverted/suspened coasters. This all makes we laugh and remember the old days..

anyway when I refer to a "Suspended" coaster, I'm not counting the ARROW tublar track swinging suspended.
