With The Dark Knight, experience the ride of a lifetime. Venture through demented hallways of twists, turns and hallucinatory images, while being tormented by The Joker himself. Then set foot onto a distressed, vandalized train platform. You can only guess at what awaits as you speed through six
180-degree hairpin turns, climb unseen hills, plunge into pitch darkness and dip into unforeseen danger. As you attempt to escape the terror, your only hope is that Gotham's Silent Guardian —
Batman — can save you!
thats the description from the great adventure site.
This makes me very happy. This is a badly needed ride. Something that everybody can ride. Hopefully it is indoors.
I'm excited about the new Great Adventure ride. Any word on what the SFNE coaster will be called, since that park already has a coaster called Batman: The Dark Knight?
That is going to confuse people. That's a horrible decision if that is truly the case. People are going to think Batman the Ride is new, and not The Dark Knight. They should name this new ride Batman The Ride. *** Edited 9/27/2007 2:18:46 PM UTC by Spinout***
And as I recall, Shapiro never said they would not build ANY rollercoasters, he said something like "you won't be seeing any more Goliaths at Six Flags" (referring to the hyper at SFoG). I do find it amusing that even though it's an invert, they ARE building a Goliath at SFFT. :)

A day at the park is what you make it!
or even better -
"I went to Great Adventure and rode the Batman ride" / "the one where you hang from the track?" / "no, the one where you shoot out of the building and up the tower" / "oh, they must have changed it" / "yeah, well, it's real rough, that Batman ride"
good luck, New England - and don't get me started on the new woodie in St. Louis named for a guy who went on drunken rampages, did jail time for domestic abuse, and attacked his manager with an aluminum baseball bat - gee, what a good role model to aim at the family audience, not to mention that nobody under 40 knows who he is, or at least remembers when he was famous
I thought the "Six Flags shoot self in foot" days were over - guess not - but at least they're buying good rides, that's all I should care about, I suppose
"Theismann likes the company's management and that it's building eight new roller coasters."
The only reason Snyder bought up SFI from premier in 05/06 was because of SFA....it poses a threat to fedex field right up the road & even though the stadium doesn't operate nearly as long as the park it still poses a threat during the latter half of the season when football games resume.
