Batman Backwards at Six Flags Great America [VIDEO]

Batman: The Ride was the world’s first inverted (read: the seats hang with your feet dangling in thin air) roller coaster when it opened in 1992 at Six Flags Great America. Now, 21 years later, they’ve flipped the switch and the ride is going backwards. For a limited time this summer you can get the thrill that only comes from whipping around hairpin curves at speeds up to 50mph – backwards.

Cara Carriveau, Jim Goodrich and I had the chance to take the ride on Media Day, and we’ve got video to prove it! It’s quick, it’s fast, and OH, is it fun!
