It looks like riders would be upside down for a while in the concept art where the zero g roll is on the actual ride. Also interesting how there was going to be a city skyline on top of the station.

For your viewing a pleasure, here is the original promo video presented at the park during the summer of 1992 to promote the new Batman The Ride attraction for 1993. Click the image below (fiile is large - give it a minute to load).

 

And here is something to think about.... if Six Flags Great America had a bigger plot of land available for their Batman ride, all the other Six Flags parks would most likely have a larger inverted coaster today.

I don't believe it ever was a set plan,but it was assumed due to the clues they had before the 2015 announcement. I would say it is still possible or maybe will come later in the year.

I didn't realize that the backwards train(s) seem to travel from park to park for "limited runs" until I read about the idea it was coming to SFOG this year on Screamscape. I think it's still possible, but they just want to wait to announce until they know the State will approve it for riders (which is never a "given" in New Jersey).

Look at that line at 56 seconds into the video. Now it only gets like that on a Saturday during Fright Fest.

^ You have to remember that several years after opening the queue line between the wall and the sewer drain was greatly expanded, eating much of the line that use to fill the queue snake through the park at the front of ride.

Anyone remember when they use to have on-ride photos on Batman? At night the rapid flash of the cameras was disorienting!

Woah, I had no idea Batman had an on-ride photo op! When did they get rid if it?

I never got a picture form Batman. I wish I had before they got rid of it. Back then I didn't have the money to toss away on ride photos.

Okay guys, it's Batman the Ride's 25th anniversary, shall the coaster get new paint like blue track with gray supports in the future? Plus it should bring old effects, and old police car prop too.

The effects still work, sporadically. One day they will work, next visit they don't, then they work again. One effect I don't like is the children playing soundeffects in the outer park queue, its very annoying. Also I want to add that Batman's station is in desperate need of a reroofing. Its metal roof has huge rust holes in it.

For B:TR's anniversary they should definitely bring back the cop car prop and add an on-ride video feature.

As for a new paint job,my 3 favorites are:black track with grey supports;grey track with blue supports;and what I call "Gotham Grey":battleship grey track with charcoal grey supports.
