BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT™ will show you what it feels like to be the ultimate caped crusader, on this deeply intense 55-mile-per-hour juggernaut that is definitely not for the timid. Show your strength and bravery as you take on the criminal elements of GOTHAM CITY.

Step through the tall carved gates of Bruce Wayne’s favorite place. At first, the lovely park grounds of GOTHAM CITY seem peaceful enough, but decay and crime start to creep in the further you go. You’ll journey deep into BAT CAVE™, tricked out with all the latest high tech gear of Bruce Wayne Industries. But there’s only one piece of equipment that matters right now, and that’s the steel beast you are about to board, blasting off into the sky over GOTHAM CITY.

As you load into your seat, you suddenly realize that you’re about to fight crime with your feet just dangling inches above the tracks. 

Following an 11 story climb to the top of the lift, brace yourself for a full 360-degree loop right off the bat. You’re a global superhero, you don’t need to warm up. After escaping that obstacle, now there’s dive loop, then a zero-g roll waiting for you about ten seconds later! Next up you’ll be pounded by a set of interlocking corkscrews with enough G-force to make you scream in slow motion. How do a whopping 4 G's sound? Because that’s what you’ll be taking right about now. All in all, you’ll face a mind-warping five inversions.

Take flight with the world’s greatest detective on a mysterious night chasing evil and soaring above the city!

The fog rolls continuously throughout the city full of noise and chaos, but, atop the Gothic steel structures, a guardian stands watch; the protector of GOTHAM CITY, the Dark Knight himself…BATMAN.

You escape the streets and climb to the upper floor of an abandoned warehouse on the edge of Demon District and grab a seat waiting for the caped crusader to arrive. Suddenly, the floor drops below your feet but something grabs and pulls you right out the side window and then high above the surrounding buildings.

As you reach over 100 feet in the air, you are thrown into the sky but instinctively take flight swooping down into a full loop and then soaring against the moonlight. The dark demons and criminal underbelly scurry around amongst the other nocturnal creatures as you dodge and chase them in and out of shadows.

Before you even have a chance to thank our hero for his help, he vanishes back into dissolving sky.
