It's known as one of the most innovative and adrenaline-charged coasters on the Six Flags Over Texas roster and soon BATMAN™ The Ride will be more intense when riders dare to take on an all new experience- going backwards!

As the coaster climbs the nearly 110-foot lift hill, riders will take in the full scope of BATMAN™ The Ride's steel footprint as they anticipate the adventure that lies ahead. The train will reach speeds of 50 mph and travel through 2,700 feet of track, all while maneuvering hairpin turns, vertical loops, corkscrews and a zero-g roll. The excitement is magnified since guests cannot see the maneuvers that await them.

Celebrating it's 15th anniversary, BATMAN™ The Ride has given more than 17 million rides and reigns as one of the most popular roller coasters at Six Flags Over Texas. BATMAN™ The Ride backwards will open for a limited time this summer.
