Is there a possiblity of a "Bat" return to PKI?

I think it's almost impossible since they already have an Arrow suspended(which I don't believe are even manufactured anymore???), unless it returns in the form of B&M invert(which I believe Top Gun should have been in the first place). So, I would say your chances are close to one in a million. Extremely doubtful, especially when TG is the least adult coaster in the park.

I don' know about that, but I did hear about a ride called Father's Brother's Uncle's Cousin's Former Roomate of Beast. Im looking forward to it. :-)
Seriously, that would be a good idea.

Thats a crazy name of a rollercoaster, would it still be wooden?

Half Wooden half Steel...ALL Family!

That would be tight! It would be crazy though. Like make it 400 Ft. tall with 8 inversions or something!

I also don't think so due to TopGun. Cool Facts about Bat: The Vorxet station is the old Bat station, and you can still see the half circles cut out of the doors where the trasfer track is. That's where the spine would go. If you look closely at the Vortex turn before the mid-course breaks, look down and see the original bat footers still in the ground. Rumor has it that the steps going up the VTex hill are the same ones for the Bat, but I highly doubt it. These are the reasons why I call the Vortex the "BatTex". I thought it would be cool to put one of the old bat trains on Top Gun.

There had been a rumor off and on for the past couple of years that The Bat was going to make a return in Rivertown as a flying dutchman. Most of that talk disappeared when it became obvious that Paramount was done with the Vekoma FD.

I saw that they were going to modify the trains on Arrow Suspendeds, starting with The Vampire in England. It will be an open air car that will let your feet dangle. It seems that this would also require major modifications to the loading platform, but maybe they have something figured out.
