Game-Changing Thrill Ride to Debut at Six Flags Great Adventure in 2017 –

JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis

 

JACKSON, N.J. ─ September 1, 2016 ─ Six Flags Great Adventure, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, announces the addition of JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis to its world-class lineup of thrill rides in 2017. This multi-sensory, interactive dark ride received global recognition as the Best New Product by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, was named one of the Top Ten Amusement Park Attractions of the Year by USA Today readers and named Best New Attraction by Theme Park Insider.

 

“This ride is a game-changer and without question one of the most innovative, interactive and exciting attractions we have ever undertaken,” said Six Flags Great Adventure President Neal Thurman. “The world-class game play and cutting-edge technology will have guests fully engaged in non-stop action.”

 

In a high-stakes clash between good and evil, guests will become members of the Justice League Reserve team and engage in a full-sensory journey to save the city of Metropolis as they battle alongside Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Supergirl and Cyborg against Super Villains Lex Luthor and The Joker.

 

JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis features:

 

· 4D ride experience with wind, fire, mist and fog effects, plus life-like animatronic characters;

 

· Sleek, six-passenger, motion-platform cars that twist, tilt and spin while going through hairpin, 360-degree turns, all synched to the action on the screens;

 

· Intense virtual loop and barrel roll, giving riders the head-over-heels feeling;

 

· High definition, 3D animation that fully immerses riders into the city of Metropolis; and

 

· State-of-the-art, real-time gaming elements including 600 virtual and tangible targets.

 

JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis is expected to debut in the late spring of 2017. For more information about next season at Six Flags Great Adventure, visit https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure/newfor2017

I hope the actual ride is as good as the "artist rendering"-I like the idea of aiming at actual targets as well projected ones.

I only went on once but I don't remember there really being any actual targets. The joker is really the only actual set piece on the ride, there are other props but nothing that I remember being anything other then just set objects.

Very Happy with Great Adventure s new ride for 2017, looks like a very down year for Six Flags however. No DC Kids additions, no large roller coasters and why put another Joker only 3 hous away, you now just took riders away from great adventures from NY, CT and North.

Does anyone know the difference between our JL ride and MM JL "second generation" ride besides this...

 

This will actually be a "next generation" version of the popular Six Flags dark ride experience featuring a spectacular new finale scene, new game targets as well as the addition of popular super-villain Harley Quinn.

 

You think this could be on all JL rides for the parks next year...

Im curious to see where the entrance for this is going to go. Will they reopen Old Country completely or have the entrance towards the end of Movietown, behind Dark Knight?

Most likely will be in the Chiller's old location. Excited for that section of the park to really open up again. I hope they get rid of the whole catering area so they can have some more space to work with. Either way, they'll have to do a bit of an overhaul of that section.

Really excited for this new edition. I haven't gotten the chance to ride one of these before so I'm glad they're adding one at our very own GA. We've been lacking dark rides for several years now so it's about time they gave us one. I do hope this means that a new coaster is incoming, because let's face it, we haven't gotten a good coaster since El Toro.

Agreed; it's a good addition. I'm worried about capacity in a park of our size, and I hope they can maintain the little details better than they maintain, well, everything else in the park. But definitely happy about it for now.

I don't understand why only MM is getting the extra stuff. I get that the extra pre show room is probably more costly, but if they're adding Harley Quinn and a new finale, it's probably just some basic differences with the videos. Why couldn't they spread that out to all three parks?

Harley Quinn is a new animation, which is kind of significant considering there's only 2. (Joker and Cyborg)

They definitely use the catering area a lot and it brings in lots of huge groups and thus money. That's not something they're going to get rid of.

I have wanted a dark ride for years and when other parks started getting Justice League, I was hoping Great Adventure would add one as well. It looks like it will be a very impressive ride for a regional park.

Right, but if they're paying to have it done, why not just add it to the screens at the other parks?

It's not a screen.. it's a very expensive physical animatronic. Each one they make is expensive, and for whatever reason, they're not spending the money on us or Over Georgia. (Even despite this being Over Georgia's 50th year!)

I can understand why Magic Mountain got the enhanced JL ride. They are located in an area of the country where down the freeway are some of the best dark rides ever built.

^Agreed, Matt. I feel like they'd get a lot more mileage with the added figure in any market other than LA, where they're up against some of the highest-budget dark rides in the business.

No Super Loops, No Kids areas, Mexico is getting nothing basically (VR which is nothing, a new event which is something cool; might be the water park but that's hours away from it), Great Escape is getting something cool, Both the NO DC parks are getting rides that use the same name in the chain [bonzi is not trademarked i think but Titian is]. Minus St. Louis, La Ronde, Fiesta Texas, Mexico, and Great Escape-there are only DC themed rides: 3 Jokers, 3 JL, Wonder Women Themed Frisbee, and a Wonder Women themed Skyscreamer.

 

Sentence: S&S 4D freeflyers are just like Movie- the squeal is worse than the original.

I mean I guess. Maybe it's just me, but walking in to the park that area is always empty. Maybe I'm wrong but I feel like a new coaster would draw in a much larger audience

Are we absolutely sure that GA isn't getting it? Wasn't there something about GA's building being bigger than the ones built already?

Yea, 3000 more square feet, but that might've changed in another meeting.

I also noticed today that Great Adventure went BACK to the planning board in August for 2017 Capital Improvements, after they already got approval for the 25,000 square foot building in July.

In August they were on the agenda for Legal Matters which is the follow up stage where closure on approval is granted. They only presented their application once in July.
