Batman – The Dark Knight is a Bolliger & Mabillard floorless roller coaster located at Six Flags New England in Agawam, Massachusetts, USA. The ride was installed by Martin & Vleminckx.[1]

Design[edit]

Elements

The ride features a twisted layout. A banked curve goes through the vertical loop, the zero-g roll crosses through the dive loop and the corkscrews are interlocking. The ride features a pre-drop, typical of B&M roller coasters.

History[edit]

The ride was renamed Batman: The Ride in 2008 due to a proposed new roller coaster, called The Dark Knight Coaster at Six Flags New England. This new ride was then cancelled and the name was reverted to the original.

Trivia[edit]

The ride is one of only two roller coasters of this kind to feature track crossing through the vertical loop. The other floorless coaster to do this is Insane Speed at Janfusun Fancyworld in Taiwan.
