Intamin's New Batman Coaster Debuts in Spain

May 13, 2023, 5:54 PM · May means new theme park attractions, and the openings continued today with the debut of Batman Gotham City Escape at Parque Warner Madrid.

This is another Intamin multi-launch coaster, following Toutatis at Parc Astérix, last year's Pantheon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and the queen herself, Jurassic World VelociCoaster in 2021 at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure. Like the VelociCoaster, Batman features four inversions, but hits a top speed of 64.6 mph, topping out at 147.6 feet on 3,314 feet of track, placing it behind the three other recent Intamin products.

Still, no one recites specs when they are flying on one of these scream machines. Check out the official front-row, on-ride POV video from the park.

In case you missed them, this week also brought the openings of Pipeline the Surf Coaster at SeaWorld Orlando and Big Bear Mountain at Dollywood. Stay tuned to Theme Park Insider for even more attraction opening news next week, including DarKoaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and the new SeaWorld Abu Dhabi on Yas Island.

this looks pretty fantastic. it's difficult enough to separate similar coasters after riding them, let alone to do so after watching a video but ... this looks like it could at least compare to velocicoaster.

My issue with these coasters name after a superhero is that they’re terribly themed. The coasters, I have no problem(Many are fun), is just that nothing about it tells me it supposed to be about [Insert Superhero Here]. The closest is Superman: Escape from Krypton because it does have an idea that needs expanding: It could start off as a dark ride showing the final days of Krypton. Once it ends, you’re launched at full speed to escape Krypton(Essentially the train being Superman’s Rocket) and made the track longer to include various turns and go back to the indoor station, essentially “landing” on Earth in Kansas.

The ending of this ride looks so anticlimactic.

I was about to say "this looks like an offspring of Pantheon and VC" and then I saw the ending.
