Screamscape schrieb:Six Flags Magic Mountain will bring "Justice League: Battle for Metropolis - Ride. Play. Triumph." to the park in 2017. 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.
"This cutting-edge attraction brings riders into the DC Universe featuring interactive content in one of the first-ever virtual 360-degree loops on an attraction, and interactive 180-degree toroidal screens that allow riders to experience state-of-the-art gaming while riding in six-passenger pitch and roll motion-based vehicles synced to custom action-packed scenes featuring the most iconic DC characters." Riders will join the Justice League Reserve Team and fight alongside Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Green Lantern to save the city of Metropolis from Lex Luthor, The Joker and his henchmen, now along with fan-favorite Harley Quinn. The dark ride will be housed inside a 23,624 sqft Hall of Justice building and feature a 4D ride experience along with wind, fire, mist, fog and other special effects, as well as animatronic figures of Cyborg, The Joker, Harley Quinn, various henchmen and Lex Bots. The attraction will be situated within the new Metropolis area of the park that will include other new improvements to the surrounding area including added entertainment and new food and beverage and retail locations.
Let’s talk about the ride’s incredible animatronics, many more than the original versions, flame thrower, fog effects, and image mapping. If all this wasn’t enough imagine several 180? degree screens that surround the ride vehicle, entirely immersing guests into the action packed scenes. This ride is at the level of Transformers- The Ride: 3D at Universal Studios Hollywood in the way it moves, except this ride adds physical scenes, animatronics, and the interactive edge.
I am incredibly excited that Six Flags Magic Mountain looked at its respective market near some of the best dark rides this world has ever seen (Disney and Universal), and invested in an upgraded project that could compete. The Valencia theme park has outdone themselves. It is not often that the park derives from building a coaster or thrill ride, and the one time they did they nailed it! Go visit Six Flags Magic Mountain soon and get an air-conditioned ride in on one of the state’s most impressive attractions!
