Batman: The Ride – backwards? 

From March 24 through May 13 Six Flags St. Louis will give thrill seekers the chance to ride Batman: The Ride backward. When it opened in 1995, Batman: The Ride brought the first inverted, looping coaster experience by B&M to Six Flags St. Louis, allowing guests to fly beneath the track with their feet dangling. Now, the ski-lift style car on the ride will be turned 180° in the opposite direction so that guests travel the 2,693 feet (821 m) of track facing backward. Guests will leave the Batcave and travel up the 10-story lift before flying through the steel track’s initial 70 foot (21 m) loop, followed by two outside helices, another vertical loop, a zero-gravity roll and never see them coming. Only one train on Batman: The Ride will travel in reverse, so guests who like to face their thrills head on may still do so.
