History

On November 4, 1998, Six Flags Over Texas announced that Batman The Ride would make its debut in 1999.[2] On May 26, 1999, the ride officially opened. Unlike the other locations, this one features a different loading station themed to the Wayne Foundation Industrial Park instead of Gotham Public Works.

During the 2014 season, the ride operated with a backwards train.[3]
