Mr. Freeze reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Mr. Freeze, a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas. (The minimum height to ride is 54 inches.)
Written by James Rao
A Premier Rides LIM (Linear Induction Motor) launched roller coaster.
For 2012, the ride has been re-engineered to launch backwards and is being called Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast.
The ride catapults guests from 0 to 70 mph in 3.8 seconds through a 190' tunnel and up into a 180 degree inversion that flips riders completely upside-down. This "Top Hat" element is followed by an over-banked turn and a vertical spike. As the train nears the top of this spike, it loses momentum and is pushed up the rest of the 200+ feet by another set of LIMs. The train then stops moving forward and falls backwards, running the entire course in reverse.
Duration of the ride is approximately 55 seconds.
Mr. Freeze is a Flash Pass attraction.
Mr. Freeze is okay, but it's just too short. The reverse blast changes it some, but it's another "Let's put a train backwards and give it loads of hype" thing. - Bradley Keith
the vertical drop is awesome! Aderenaline ushu! - Steven D
I enjoy this ride, especially when the line is short. The queue is done well and very cool, making it really nice in the middle of a hot Texas summer. The ride is a much more enjoyable experience than Flashback/Boomerang. - Carl Stovall
A Premier Rides launched coaster that inverts and climbs, then does it all in reverse. One minute of adrenalin rush. It is a fun ride, but a little on the short side. The fully enclosed queue area is a big step up over the copycat ride at Six Flags Saint Louis. - James Rao
If we could turn all Vekoma Boomerangs into this coaster, the theme park world would be a better place. The use of magnets for the initial launch and the secondary magnet push up the top of the spire give this coaster an extra level of thrill and originality over VB's. - Rocklin Terrell
One of the best rides in the park the only downfall ride too short - Brian Whitman
