There is finally some “justice” for fans of Six Flags Over Texas who have been on pins and needles waiting to learn more about the mystery ride the park is currently building.
Thursday, Six Flags announced a new ride for the 2015 season called “Justice League: Battle for Metropolis.”
It’s an interactive, 3D dark ride, where riders will use laser guns to shoot targets throughout the 20,000-square-foot building.
The premise of the ride is that Batman and Superman need your help to rescue the other members of the Justice League, who have been kidnapped by several mega-villains from the DC Comics universe.
Construction is underway on the old Adventure Theatre building, which will be expanded to accommodate the new ride.
“We really think this is going to hit the ball out of the park, having an attraction that everyone will enjoy,” said Steve Martindale, president of Six Flags Over Texas. “We think that this ride will have a lot of repeat riders, because it’s something that every time you ride it’s going to be a little bit different. It’s really a ride that you play.”
Park enthusiasts said they can’t wait to get on it.
“We think that the new Justice League attraction will be a great addition to the park and appeal to guests of all ages,” said Trevor Eitel, founder of Texas Thrill Seekers, a Texas-based coaster enthusiast group. “We’re really excited for the 2015 season and to see how the new ride turns out.”
Justice League: Battle for Metropolis is set to open next spring. Park officials also wanted to assure fans that the popular Roaring Rapids attraction will be back once construction is complete.
