Batman is the world's first suspended, outside-looping (or "inverted") coaster, opening in 1992. With a top speed of 50mph and no floor it promises to get your heart pounding. In 2013, Six Flags began running the ride backward.

I've been on several clones of this ride, but the original is better than all of them. That said, I'm not the biggest fan of the Batman clones as I don't care for non-stop intensity, but they are a good ride and prove that bigger isn't always better.

Really good coaster. A little jerky at times though.
Joey Till
Very fun ride that i hope to get on in each visit. Its smooth, Very Intense, and has some wicked twists. Even though there are a ton around the world, this is the very first.

This ride used to be my favorite at Six Flags. However, in recent years, it seems to have deteriorated and is starting to become intolerable to ride. It's lost a lot of the smoothness it was known for in the beginning. It's a much rougher ride nowadays, which I would probably attribute to it's age as it is now 20 years old.

Great in the Dark of Night!
