Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis to launch

MR. FREEZE Reverse Blast

Update : 29/03/12 - 20h49 Published by François Mayné the 26 March 2012, New.
Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis to launch MR. FREEZE Reverse Blast

Six Flags Over Texas (Arlington, Texas) and Six Flags St. Louis (Eureka, Missouri) announced that they will reverse the trains of their Mr. Freeze launch rollercoasters to debut an all-new ride experience, MR. FREEZE: Reverse Blast.

Trains will now run backwards for a new thrilling experience!Opened in 1998 and manufactured by Premier Rides, both rides consist of a 110 kph / 70 mph LIM launch inside a 190-foot (58 meters) tunnel, a massive inverted top hat, a horseshoe and a 61 meters / 200 foot vertical climb where riders find themselves suspended, dangling in the air, before repeating the entire experience. The trains will now run backwards, offering new thrills for riders! MR. FREEZE Reverese Blast will be the fastest reverse roller coaster rides in Texas and Missouri.

The ride will maintain the original MR. FREEZE theme, patterned after Batman's cold-hearted arch rival in the DC Comics Batman series. The adventure begins with a chilling walk through "Snowy's Cones," an old abandoned ice cream warehouse that secretly doubles as the favorite hideout of this "Villain of Chillin."

"Reversing the direction of the trains on two of our most popular coasters is a fun twist on the ride experience," said Al Weber, Six Flags chief operating officer. "MR. FREEZE: Reverse Blast demonstrates Six Flags' commitment to continually push the envelope and deliver new and innovative thrills to our guests."



"The reverse launch is sure to be dramatic," said Tim Baldwin, editor of RollerCoaster! Magazine. "What will really blow riders away is the upward vertical climb into the sky staring face forward to the ground. Diving straight down more than 200-feet back to earth, face-down, is going to be totally wicked!"

Both rides are scheduled to open in May. Six Flags Over Texas opened for the 2012 season on Saturday, March 3, and Six Flags St. Louis opens for its 2012 season on Friday, April 6.
