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[edit | edit source]

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.
