Batwing opens TOMORROW

35 posts in this topic

Just found this on the MW website. It looks like it opens before we all thought!

WANT MORE EXCITEMENT? The latest most exciting thrill ride to hit Australia is coming soon! Just when you thought Warner Bros. Movie World couldn't offer you any more action - out of the darkness comes an unprecedented thrill ride never before seen in Australia. Get ready to go Ballistic with an extreme adrenalin rush that will leave you a Bit Batty! The awesome new Batwing Spaceshot is a rapid 4.5G vertical launch up a 60 metre tower, followed by a drop into a breathtaking negative descent - beyond freefall! This radical new ride will launch December 20, 2006, only at Warner Bros. Movie World.

The precise stats on the ride including speed, g-force etc. can all be seen in the Batwing profile on Roller-Coaster.com.au. It's not a fast launch at all. Space Shots aren't about breaking speed records; they're about incredible acceleration and deceleration forces that give some of the best airtime out there. It comes within a few feet of the top. For safety and reliability reasons it's understandable why they can't go to the absolute top. When you're up there it's not like those few feet are going to make any difference to the experience.

Woa!!! That looks really intense. In the vid it looks like the car reaches the top in nearly 3 seconds. :o For the people that have ridden it, What does it feal like when you are pushed down after the launch?? Anyway, hope you get some really good pics Ian and I can't wait to see them! :P CoasterBoy6

Im a fan of long rides like Splash Mountain, but will say Batwing was a blast I love how it counts down the Launch over the parks speakers, makes you even more nervous at take off time. The bouncing was great and being above the Superman Top Hat looked awesome. BTW for the Media launch Batman Absailed down the tower very cool. Anyway ride is now open to public so get out there and ride. *****watch 10 news for onride footage tonight*****

Thanks for the heads up about Network Ten. They're always good to the theme parks. Looking forward to riding this, but I guess that's the stock answer everyone says. Bah! ;)

Well someone will have to tape it and put it on youtube coz it won't be shown in Melbourne.

It was on Ten's News in Brisbane tonight during the weather update. Vox popped nicely with the crowds. Lots of launch coverage including Batman's stunt down the top of the tower, an interview with John Menzies as well as interviews with the special guests such as Michael Voss (Brisbane Lions) and other sports folk. The news seemed to be having technical difficulties tonight, though - lots of sound cuts, etc. Looked good, though. On ride footage looked great. The weather chick said she was to frightened to ride. :mellow: I personally can't wait! :D
