Cyborg: Hyper Drive is an enclosed Trabant/Satellite ride located in the DC Super Hero Adventures section of Six Flags New England in Agawam, Massachusetts, USA. It opened on June 1, 2019, after a soft opening on May 26.

In the ride, Cyborg invites guests to S.T.A.R. Labs to try out the lab's new device, before the villainous AI known as Grid hacks into the mainframe and takes control of the entire lab. Riders are then caught up in a battle between Cyborg and Grid as the former attempts to regain control of the device.

Attraction plot

Cyborg invites guests to S.T.A.R. Labs to try out a new device called the Hyper Drive which can map out the multiverse, when suddenly Grid hacks into the mainframe and takes control of the entire lab. He intends to take the device into hypertime so he can spread his programming to every corner of the multiverse. Riders are caught up in the battle as Cyborg wrestles to regain control of the enormous machine. Cyborg ends up interfacing with the Hyper Drive and shutting it down, thus stopping Grid and saving the day.

Trivia

  • Cyborg: Hyper Drive is Grid's debut appearance in a theme park attraction.
  • Cyborg: Hyper Drive is the second attraction to be dedicated to Cyborg, following Cyborg Cyber Spin at Six Flags Great Adventure, and his third appearance in a Six Flags attraction overall.
  • Grid is erroneously referred to as "The Grid" on Six Flags New England's page for this ride. In the ACE Nor Easter video Six Flags New England put out in February 2019, however, Grid is referred to by his correct name, but is referred to as a "virus" instead of an artificial intelligence.
  • Cyborg is Bumper Robinson in this ride. Robinson previously voiced Cyborg in Justice League: Battle for Metropolis. It is unknown who Grid is voiced by. If it was Robinson, he reprises his role as Grid from the 2018 video game LEGO DC Super Villains, although his voice sounded drastically different then. A few have noted Grid's voice sounds similar to the voice that was played on El Diablo at Six Flags Great Adventure.
  • Apple's Siri voices the computer in this ride.
