If you’re near Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, you’re probably ready for the newest ride — JUSTICE LEAGUE Battle for Metropolis will open soon at the park, and it looks awesome! The 4D ride will take guests through an interactive dark ride, where they will help the Justice League fight bad guys such as The Joker, Lex Luthor, and more. I’ve been on rides like this at Disney, and at times the effects seem a little cheesy. Hopefully they’ll be polished up for the rides debut. The animatronics for the ride look great though!
Justice League Battle for Metropolis is already open at several Six Flags locations, including Six Flags over Georgia, Texas and Mexico. The ride will open in New Jersey in time for the 2017 summer season, and I can’t wait to try it out. The ride will fit right in with the park, as there’s a healthy mix of DC themed rides already there. This ride will likely have a long line daily, but I don’t anticipate it getting longer than an hour, tops.
Created in partnership with Six Flags, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, this dynamic adventure features Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Supergirl in a fight to save the city of Metropolis from chaos. They are aided by the amazing Cyborg who recruits guests for the volunteer force and demonstrates how to defeat the menaces at hand with powerful laser blasters.
Featuring a mix of state-of-the-art animatronics and 3D video technology, together with numerous special effects, the over 3 minute ride incorporates five huge interactive 3D screens, an interactive 3D fog screen, multiple custom “DOF” vehicles equipped with special laser blasters, a dramatic custom musical score, and culminates in a struggle between the Justice League and the evil villains, in which riders play a decisive role.
As they enter the Hall of Justice, visitors are immediately alerted to the dangers on the streets of Metropolis. The Joker and Lex Luthor have teamed up to use the weaknesses of the Justice League against them to kidnap and hold them in LexCorp, Lex Luthor’s corporate headquarters in downtown Metropolis. Guests are given their mission directives; find the Justice League and free them from The Joker, Lex and their evil minions.
