Dark Knight Coaster Opens @ Great Adventure

A First Look at Dark Knight @ Six Flags Great AdventureDark Knight Coaster - Six Flags
Six Flags Great Adventure’s Dark Knight coaster is open for business. After viewing the press video that Six Flags posted on YouTube, I have to say that my prediction was right! Dark Knight’s not a groundbreaking, ultra thrill-ride, but it will be great for families and a wider age group than more intense coasters. Six Flags has refocused their attention on families because they bring in the most money. In that light, the Dark Knight coasters look to be a success.

For a Mack wild mouse, the ride looks like a lot of fun. The darkness and theming add a lot to a coaster that’s a dime a dozen these days. Kudos to Six Flags for doing some real theming for a change. Also, I applaud them for their timing with the Dark Knight movie due out this summer. Great America’s (Chicago, IL) is set to open on May 21st according to RCDB. More Dark Knight Coaster news…>>>

**UPDATE – 05-22** So I may be wrong on my prediction after all. While the video looks cool, Dark Knight’s getting some pretty awful reviews on one of my older posts. Check out these reviews of Dark Knight.

  1. The ride looks great! I know that heavily themed Mack wild mouses work really well with the general public… Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster in Australia is still one of the most popular rides in the country after opening 5 or 6 years ago.

  2. I thought so too. But the reviews being posted don't look so promising. People are hammering it. One guy even gave it a 1/10!

  5. If I had to wait 10 seconds, The Dark Knight would be worth it. Otherwise, skip it and ride the "Ragin' Cajun" with your eyes closed for the same coaster (and with more drops)

  7. It stunk! Waited over 2 hours for what felt like a 60 second ride. What a waster of time on a beautiful day. Save your time and ride Space Mountain at Disney instead. This was nothing more than a hyped kiddy ride. No thrills, just disappointment.

  8. Wasted 2 1/2 hours waiting for 2 minute ride that, if you called it a kiddy coaster, would be an insult to kiddy coasters! It was EXTREMELY lame. Never again….

  9. This ride belongs in bugs bunny land….just listen to the fax screams in the video…it can't get much worse. Before you waste your time in line go to the photo booth and look at the peoples faces…DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!!!!!!

  10. I rode this with my 6 year old this weekend. Yes, its a kiddie coaster/wild mouse….but they have made the lead up SO FRIGHTENING. Children, older than mine, were crying on line. Its like a bad horror ride, with lame coaster at the end.
