The Dark Knight Coaster is an enclosed wild mouse roller coaster located at Six Flags México in Mexico City, Mexico.

History

This roller coaster was originally planned to open at Six Flags New England. In February 2008, construction was halted after building inspectors realised the park had built the frame of the building without a permit.[1] In April of the same year, the park announced the cancellation of the project.[2] The coaster was taken down and put into storage. Eventually it was announced that it would open in 2009 at Six Flags México.[3] It opened on 19 March.[4]

Design

Dark Knight consists of several sharp hairpin turns and sudden drops, accented by various eerily-lit Gotham City buildings placed alongside the track.

Trains

8 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 4 riders per car.
