The Bat is a Vekoma Boomerang roller coaster located at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.[1] Its train was originally one of three from Dragon Fyre, another of the park's roller coasters.

Design

Elements

See Boomerang (Vekoma product)

When the ride begins, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, then dropped through the loading station and into a cobra roll and then one vertical loop. At the end of this cycle the train is pulled up the lift hill at the end of the track, then dropped once again allowing the train to go back through the design backwards.

Trains

Single train with 7 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 28 riders per train.

The Bat's train was originally one of three from Dragon Fyre, an Arrow Dynamics looping coaster. This is because this coaster only ever used two of its trains, so the third one was moved to The Bat, presumably to save time buying a new train. The trains were built by Arrow Dynamics.

Colour Schemes

The Bat was originally red track with black supports. During the 2008 season, The Bat's supports were painted orange. As of the 2019 season, the colour scheme has been switched back to the original red track with black supports.
