New ‘Joker’ Ride Coming To Six Flags Over Texas

Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington already has park rides based on DC Comics heroes like Superman, Batman and Aquaman. They also have some rides featuring villains like Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Mr. Freeze and The Riddler. But perhaps the biggest villain of them all has been strangely missing — until now.

Get ready for a thrill ride centered around Batman’s most iconic nemesis, The Joker. And much like the comic book character himself, this one promises to be absolutely insane.

The park announced Thursday that The Joker ride will open in the spring of 2017. It is being called a “free-fly coaster,” which means that riders are able to spin and flip around, forward and backward, regardless of which direction the coaster is actually moving.
