For coaster fans, the elimination of shoulder harnesses will provide a smoother, sleeker ride experience with more airtime.
The Joker ride is the second DC Comics-themed attraction at the park after SUPERMAN™ Ultimate Flight opened in 2012 and the villainous character’s personality is evident in the coaster’s chaotic twists and turns including a first ever “step-up-under-flip inverted roll” that takes riders horizontal. The Joker ride also features the ultimate “fake-out” with a unique breaking wave turn, the only one of its kind on the West Coast.
Six Flags Over Texas - Three new Flat Rides
We are expanding our GOTHAM CITY section of the park with attractions themed after popular DC Universe Super-Villains. THE RIDDLER Revenge will send you on a swinging adventure atop a giant swaying pendulum. The round disk will swing back and forth up to 147 feet in the air while rotating counterclockwise.
