An inverted coaster that offers two vertical loops, two corkscrews and a zero G roll. Some think of it as the mini Medusa.

8/10 Sure, it's short; sure, it's small. But this ride still packs that good sort of punch, harder then any of the other B&M coasters at the park. An intense ride from start to finish. - Mike Brilhart

After years of rough-riding, Batman is actually a decent ride once again. It's still way too short, but it packs a lot of twists, turns and inversions into a very tight space, making for a fast and fun ride. - Jon Gibbons

Still a very good ride on this B&M Inverted. Very hot slow loding platform. But still an intense ride. - Joe Schwartz

A solid B&M invert. Nice warm-up before getting on bigger coasters. Provides good theming and the coaster has great speed that doesn't let up. - Derrick O. Foreman

I loved the ride! Although it is not as intense as the other coasters in the park, it is worth going on and the wait is never more than 30 minutes. - Penelope Newman

I would suggest this ride if it were someone's first time going on a coaster, but for roller coaster veterans this should be no more than a warm-up ride. This ride really pales in comparison to much larger and taller (and arguably, more fun) inverted rides such as Superman and Bizarro. It is hard to get airtime on this ride as the only real "airtime" moment is the first drop but it turns instead of going straight down, and the inverted loops are too small to provide enough time to feel any "g's". Furthermore, more times than not one will become dizzy and disoriented, so much that going on this ride more than once can easily make anyone nauseous. Because this ride was fit into such a small area, the twists and turns feel cramped, contributing to the nauseous feeling mentioned before. Nonetheless, I still give this ride an average score because it fulfills its duty, which is to serve as a warm-up for bigger rides, getting one's juices flowing and adrenaline rush pumping. - Joseph Yang
