“We are excited to partner with the popular DC Comics characters to bring this level of unmatched, interactive thrills to our guests this season,” said Park President Steve Martindale. “JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis is like no other ride we’ve ever built. The technology is second to none and guests will be fully immersed in the action from start to finish.”

This next generation of interactive thrills offers guests the ultimate dark ride adventure when they team up with SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN, GREEN LANTERN and THE FLASH after accepting the challenge to outwit Lex Luthor and The Joker’s plans to destroy the city of Metropolis. As JUSTICE LEAGUE Reserve Team members, riders travel in sleek six-passenger custom designed, motion-based vehicles and engage in a full-sensory battle, complete with 4D effects of fire, cannon blasts, and explosions all while experiencing hairpin, 360-degree turns and the world’s first-ever virtual loop on a dark ride.

Riders use interactive laser blasters and attempt to extinguish the 600 virtual and tangible targets featured throughout the attraction, including a life-like villain animatronic, robotic henchmen, helicopters, a hologram and an interactive fog screen. The realistic features take the ride gaming experience to an unprecedented level.

Six Flags, the largest regional theme park company in the world, collaborated with the most innovative minds in the industry to bring this thrilling attraction to life. Sally Corporation, the industry leader in dark rides, designed the complete experience including story development, scenery and life-like animatronics that guests encounter throughout the ride. Pure Imagination, the gurus of Computer Generated Imagery, created the 3D graphics and film. Alterface, renowned for their work in site-based interactive game play, headed up the robust gaming elements and Oceaneering designed the first-of-its-kind, fully programmable, multi-degree-of-freedom vehicles that transport guests through all the exciting twists and turns.
