The Bat is an Arrow Dynamics steel suspended terrain roller coaster located at Kings Island in Kings Mills, Ohio, USA. It originally opened in 1993 as Top Gun, but was renamed Flight Deck for 2008, due to removal of Paramount theming. For the 2014 season, it was renamed and rethemed as the Bat. It is Kings Island's second attempt at a suspended coaster after problems with the prototype Bat in the early 80's, which stood where Vortex now operates.
