Batman and Robin: The Chiller (Batman), Six Flags Great Adventure - Review

Batman and Robin: The Chiller (Batman) - Review

Six Flags Great Adventure

Ride Facts and Info

Batman and Robin are two separate ride experiences with a similar layout but different inversions. Both tracks run side by side, and the trains are launched 0-70 mph out of an sub-zero themed station. However, they are rarely (if ever) launched simultaneously, and often out of peak season only one side operates. The trains on both sides were retrofitted with lapbars for the 2002 season, resulting in the overhead shoulder restraints being removed.


Ride Layout

After the launch, Batman features a unique inversion not seen on many coasters - the Top Hat. It sends riders up vertical and upside down at the top to come back down vertical the other side; sort of like a cobra-roll except it is vertical. The track then comes back in the opposite direction and features an inline twist and an incline featuring a second (less powerful) launch. The train then travels backwards through the whole ride again.


Ride Evaluation

The Top Hat is great, and going backwards through the inline twist I felt like I was going to be thrown from the train. The is fun, thrilling, and intense, but not a re-rideable as a full circuit coaster.
