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]
On December 18, 1996, Six Flags Over Texas announced that Mr. Freeze would be added to the park. Mr. Freeze was originally going to open in 1997 to coincide Batman & Robin's release. However, it suffered launch problems, causing the ride to be delayed to 1998.
For the 2012 season, the trains were reversed meaning the ride now launches riders backwards.
Design[edit | edit source]
Ride experience[edit | edit source]
Riders begin boarding on a train backwards. The ride features a switchback, allowing for two trains to run. The ride launches 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 course 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 course again forwards.
