Six Flags Great Adventure Announces 'The Dark Knight' Themed Coaster for
2008 Season
Six Flags Great Adventure announced today its new attraction for 2008: "The Dark Knight Coaster," an indoor dark coaster based on Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming movie The Dark Knight featuring
DC Comics' characters Batman and The Joker. The Dark Knight Coaster opens April 2008.

"Today's announcement represents Six Flags Great Adventure's continued focus on delivering a
well-rounded and balanced entertainment package," said Mark Kane, Six Flags Great Adventure's Park President. "The Dark Knight Coaster offers a unique experience that will appeal to families and teens alike."

The Dark Knight Coaster will transform guests into citizens of Gotham City — caught in the middle of a city under siege and torn apart by The Joker.

With The Dark Knight Coaster, guests will experience the ride of their lives. Venturing through demented hallways of twists, turns and hallucinatory images, they are tormented by The Joker himself. Then as they set foot onto a distressed, vandalized train platform, they can only guess at what awaits them as they speed through six 180-degree hairpin turns, climb unseen hills, plunge into pitch darkness and dip into unforeseen danger. As they attempt to escape the terror, their only hope is that Gotham's Silent Guardian — Batman — can save them.

"The opening of The Dark Knight Coaster will be perfectly-timed to coincide with the debut of the next Batman film from director Christopher Nolan. We're very excited that fans will be able to have a
first-hand experience with the sites, sounds and thrills of crime fighting in Gotham City," said
Brad Globe, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Consumer Products.

The Dark Knight Coaster will use storytelling, physical movement, video, sound and special effects to bring guests a one-of-a-kind dark ride experience. The $7.5 million coaster will be located in the Movietown section of Six Flags Great Adventure.

About The Dark Knight Movie
Batman (Christian Bale) raises the stakes in his war on crime in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent
(Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker
(Heath Ledger). The Dark Knight releases in theaters July 18, 2008.

It seems all the new Six Flags stuff went up on their sites at 10am..

So, congratulations to SFA for not adding anything new for 2008! You guys have gotten so good at not adding anything. You deserve an award!

LOL!

Nice, I'm going to GADV next year too! I would have rather experienced Chiller, but this will be better than just an empty spot.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

I sometimes wonder why Six Flags didn't include America in the deal to sell off those parks. I guess it would have brought the sale price up but it seems like SFA is really being neglected.

^I still say they're holding onto it to eventually sell the land. They will make an incredible amount of money when they finally decide to shut the place down and replace it with condos.

SFA is only using like 115 acres out of about 500. They could easily sell off 200-300 acres and make a killing--and still keep SFA open. They have a lot of options.

They need to do something though. With new coasters going in at Knoebels, Hershey, GADV, and KD in 2008, they really aren't bringing anything drastic to the plate to compete with.

True, but you know that there's no way they could sell that land for houses and keep the park there. All that would do is create one of those places where the new homeowners do nothing but bitch about the park (like Dornye or BGE).

I still say the reason they're investing nothing into it is to shut the place down eventually. Hopefully Wild One would be moved if this happens.
