Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast is a launched shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, USA. It is a prototype Shuttle Catapult Coaster built by Premier Rides. The ride is a mirror image of the version at Six Flags St. Louis.
History[edit | edit source]
Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast was originally intended to open for 1997, however it did not operate until 1998 due to technical problems with the launch system.
For the 2012 season, the trains were reversed meaning the ride now launches riders backwards.
Design[edit | edit source]
Riders begin boarding on a train backwards. The ride features a switchback, allowing for two trains to run. The ride luanches you from 0-70 mph in 3.8 seconds using an LIM Launch. Following that, riders experience a 150 foot tall inverted top hat. Immediately, riders will go through a 105 foot tall 140 degree over-banked turn. They will then go up a 218 foot tall vertical spike. To help the ride gain enough speed to complete the couse forwards and backwards, there is an LIM boost that pulls the train higher on the spike, and then thrust it down. The riders then traverse the coure again forwards.
