The World's First Inverted Rollercoaster is still alive and well. Don't miss!

It sucked. When you wait in line you go through this tube that is filled with fake smoke for 30 minutes. Then when you are on the coaster it made you have tiny blackouts. And you get banged around in your seat. Then when I came off, I threw up right away. Then I vomited 4 more times. And the last one I threw up blood. Then I went to the clinic in the park and the medic told me that that ride has been giving everyone trouble, because the g-forces are hitting you at different places than normally. I hope whoever thought of that idea of turning the cars backwards gets fired. That day was so unpleasant. If anyone is thinking of going on that ride don't. That's all I have to say about this horrible ride.

Not to be confused with "The Dark Knight", "Batman: The Ride" is quite the thrill. It's nearly a minute long, but every second counts with this bad boy. You have drops, quick turns, and inversions city. I counted at least two loops and three corkscrews. If you are looking for a short ride but intensity packed in every direction, you can do worse. Excellent.

Lines aren't nearly as long as they used to be, despite the resurgence of Batman's popularity. It's fun to ride with the track overhead, but the sharp turns sometimes cause momentary black-outs.

The first inverted coaster still hits hard with vertical Gs and quick turns.

This is the first inverted looping coaster, and still one of the best. Although I haven't been on any of the other batman clones, I know that many of them are placed over gravel or dirt. This one is the original and has a really good environment around it. the scenery is nice and the overall ride experience is really good. Although it can be a little rough at times, Batman is still a great ride. B&M may have outgrown coasters like batman, but this is still a great, historical ride. It's worth a ride any time you're at Six Flags Great America.

This coaster is the original inverted coaster that introduced the craze in the 1990s and confirmed B&M as sheer geiuses. Before the decade closed, the layout of this coaster would see eight more incarnations. The coaster is steel, has 5 inversions, and is inverted. It was made by B&M in 1992. It is 105 feet tall. It has a 82 foot drop. It is 2,693 feet long. It is fun, rerideable, has a large capacity, a long ride duration, and is very nicely themed. This is a must ride for any enthusiast.

When you think about Six Flags, the coaster you probably think of is Batman. A staple at the Six Flags parks, Batman is recognized by both coaster enthusiasts and the general public alike as an intense, thrilling ride. The first one to ever grace the world is this one at Great America. Even though the height is nothing to gawk over, height is definitely NOT a problem with this masterpiece. Its bright yellow track winds above the queue line as screaming passengers take their ride on the caped crusader. The queue is an experience in itself, with some pretty decent theming to watch while you wait in line. A crashed police car, a sewage passage, the batcave, all excellent. Strap yourself in, youre in for one incredible ride.

After the ride ops check you, they give the clear and youre out the door. Going up the lift hill excitement builds as you anticipate the ride. Youre already at the top and youre turning and zooming down the marvelous drop and into one of the best loops I have ever experienced. Your feet start to tingle after that intense inversion and youre upside down again whipping through the barrel roll. Your face pushes back into the seat as you go through yet another intense loop. After going through that you turn and keep on turning and the ride finally lets up for just a second as it goes through a straight piece of track but before you can breathe youre going through a perfect corkscrew. Whipping you through it you scream in either delight or pleasure and you turn, drop down a little bit, and hits you again with another one. After that you glide into the station. Short but sweet. To give you an idea on how nonstop this ride is, my mom got sick on this and had to sit down for about 10 minutes and she was ok on Top Thrill Dragster! The first inverted coaster and still one of the best. Go ride one of these at a Six Flags near you.

Great for first time riders. It might make some people sick, because of all the Gs that are experienced. If both trains are running, the line moves at an okay pace. This ride replaced Tidal Wave back in 1992. Front row seems to be the fastest, with a great view. Not a bad ride.
