Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast is a steel launched shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka, Missouri, USA. It is a prototype Shuttle Catapult Coaster built by Premier Rides. There is a mirror image of the ride located at Six Flags Over Texas.

History

In 1996, Six Flags St. Louis announced that Mr. Freeze would be added to the park.

Mr. Freeze was originally going to open in 1997, along with the release of Batman & Robin, but the ride suffered launch system problems. For this, the ride's opening was delayed to 1998.[1]

When the ride first opened, it had over-the-shoulder restraints. Due to a rough ride experience, they were later replaced with individual ratcheting lap bars for the 2002 season.

In 2012, Six Flags announced that Mr. Freeze would run backwards.
