Six FlagsJackson, NJ · May 15, 2008Six Flags Great Adventure today unveiled the highly anticipated “THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster.” Based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming movie THE DARK KNIGHT, the indoor, dark coaster offers guests a one-of-kind ride experience.

More than just a ride, THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster features the most world renowned DC Comics characters in an adventure that utilizes storytelling, physical movement, video, sound and special effects to bring guests a one-of-a-kind dark ride thrill. As part of the experience, park guests will see, hear and feel the action of the movie the moment they enter the ride queue line, as they are transformed into citizens of Gotham City — caught in the middle of a city under siege and torn apart by The Joker.

Guests board a Gotham City rail car and careen through six 180-degree hairpin turns, climb unseen hills, plunge into pitch darkness, dip into unforeseen danger and continue to be tormented by The Joker as they thrust onto the battlefield of good vs. evil. Will THE DARK KNIGHT save them in time?

“THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster offers guests a one-of-a-kind ride experience that combines the action and excitement of THE DARK KNIGHT movie with the thrill of a roller coaster,” said Mark Kane, Six Flags Great Adventure’s Park President. “THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster offers a unique experience that will appeal to both family and teen audiences.”

The attraction also introduces new, customized footage featuring District Attorney Harvey Dent (as portrayed by Aaron Eckhart), produced and shot specifically for THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster. The ride also incorporates audio and visual elements from the film which will debut July 18, 2008, offering guests a sneak peak.

The $7.5 million coaster is located in the Movietown section at Six Flags Great Adventure adjacent to BATMAN The Ride. The height restriction is 42 inches to ride with an adult and 48 inches to ride alone. Guests can receive up-to-the-minute park news and purchase a 2008 season pass online at www.sixflags.com.
