Batman: The Ride is a steel inverted roller coaster found in Six Flags theme parks.[2] It was built by Bolliger & Mabillard.[3] The rides rise to heights of 100 feet (30 m) and reaches top speeds of 50 miles per hour (80 km/h).[2] The original roller coaster at Six Flags Great America was partially designed by the park's manager Jim Wintrode. Batman: The Ride was the world's first inverted roller coaster when it opened in 1992. It has since been awarded Coaster Landmark status by the American Coaster Enthusiasts. Its theme is based on the first Batman film. Clones of the ride exist at amusement parks around the world.
