New for 2016 at Six Flags over Texas
For 2016 Six Flags over Texas will add two new rides and re-theme an existing one as it expands the Gotham City section of the park.
Catwoman Whip will take 48 guests at a time on a dizzying wheel, mimicking the speed and rotation of a whip. The ride is a Zamperla Endeavor.
The Riddler Revenge
The Riddler Revenge is a massive, swinging pendulum. Riders will sit around a swinging, rotating disc as they’re flung 147 feet in the air, nearly inverted, at speeds up to 68 mph. The Riddler Revenge is actually a Zamperla Giant Discovery, the largest “Frisbee” flat ride available.
Harley Quinn Spinsanity
To keep the Gotham City area expansion consistent, the park is also re-theming Crazy Legs as Harley Quinn Spinsanity.
Official Press Release
Six Flags Over Texas Announces Major Expansion with 3 New Rides
DC Universe Villains Help Boost Theme Park’s Coaster Resume
Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, today announced plans for an impressive expansion to the GOTHAM CITY section of the park that will include three new rides in 2016. The area will become the ultimate battle of BATMAN versus the Rogue’s Gallery of Super-Villains with the opening of The Riddler Revenge, Catwoman Whip, and Harley Quinn Spinsanity. These exhilarating rides will stand alongside MR. FREEZE: Reverse Blast giving guests an epic dose of villainous coasters after enjoying BATMAN™ The Ride in this portion of the park.
“We are excited to offer our guests these premium attractions, thanks to our partnership with the popular DC Comics brand,” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas park president. “These rides are an excellent addition to our already impressive line-up and the expansion of Gotham City will offer a uniquely villainous experience.”
The Riddler Revenge, Catwoman Whip, and Harely Quinn Spinsanity will taunt and beckon guests as they make their way through Gotham City. Characteristic of The Riddler’s flamboyant and unpredictable style, the intriguing and oversized pendulum shaped ride — The Riddler Revenge — will send guests on a dizzying journey by swinging them back and forth while rotating counterclockwise. The ride will propel 40 riders at speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour higher and higher until they experience a feeling of weightlessness at 147 feet in the air. On Catwoman Whip, 48 riders, sitting in rows of two, will spin and tilt in a circular motion, building up speed as the ride whips around, mimicking its namesake. Harley Quinn Spinsanity will have riders spinning, twisting and swirling around and around in a thrilling and classic ride experience for the entire family.
The Super-Villains are set to make their presence felt in Gotham City in the spring of 2016.
