They got rid of the old Batman ride for the new one. Otherwise it's been a long while since I've been. LETS DO THIS!

I'm thinking maybe sometime late June or maybe in July sometime. Thoughts?

The new ride

I have not been to Six flags in umm, over a decade, 1997 was the last time. Partly I have not been there because I do not fit on any of the modern roller coaster seat designs. The classic wooden coasters still fit perfect.

If they dropped the original Batman, I'ma be pissed. Honestly I don't hate the newer Dark Knight ride but its nowhere near as cool as the original!!

new batman ride is a kiddie coaster. I only like the lil video thing, besides that the ride needs to be killed with fire. /trufax

Old Batman <3 so beautiful . I wish they allowed costumes there so I could take Ivy photos in the part of the que in Gotham Park.

BTW guys, there is ANOTHER themed hotel which is way pricer but it features this baby http://www.hollywood...spx?roomname=11

They dropped Iron Wolf, not original Batman. Besides, it's the first inverted roller coaster and has coaster landmark status. Whizzer will also be receiving landmark status this year too.

Hmm... I just checked the calendar, that is Wizard World Saturday. I'm not 100% sure if I am going to it but I'm considering it. I might consider skipping WW but I thought I'd let those who may be interested in both events know this.

I live 45 mins to an hour from Six Flags so I'd skip staying overnight because I usually work Sunday mornings and need to save money when possible. However, I would be down for hanging out after the park.

For now keep my status as a maybe.

I'd probably steer away to it as last time we checked for the halloween outing a year or so back no costumes were allowed.
that and august weather will make you miserable :/
