Good to see our old SLC getting some love. New restraints look great, and on board audio was a surprise! Not a huge fan of the new name though.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

So, those will end up being like the new Nor'Easter trains, yes? If so, that's great. Nor'Easter is re-rideable.

The trains will be different from the Great Nor'Easter, these ones will be manufactured by KumbaK. I was hoping for the new Vekoma trains as seen on the Great Nor'Easter, but these ones will do. These trains seem to have a large lap bar with a vestlike chest restraint, so it looks like head banding is gone for good!

Let's hope the KumbaK trains don't ruin the ride like they did with Stampida :roll: Oh, well, it's an SLC... can it get any worse?

^Yeah, I was thinking about how their wooden trains are not thought of well. But at least these will eliminate headbanging, which is a major plus on Great Nor'Easter (though that ride is still jerky). It looks like they might offer a little more freedom than the Vekoma vests, though I'm not sure it really matters...

Am I the only one who thought from the press release that those handles on the restraints will contain those Shocker things that you find in arcades? I mean, "Dose of shock therapy"? "Electrifying" on-board audio? Those handlebars definitely will have live wires running through them.

Am I the only one who thinks the ride name is quite politically incorrect :p

Perhaps this topic should be split off to cover the new theme/trains for the upcoming Arkham Asylum: Shock Therapy.....

As somebody who has seen the trains in person I am fairly impressed, the buttons on the restraints actually allow the restraint to release (once you have returned to the station)
Fact Sheet

The coaster is the world’s first ride themed around the very popular Arkham Asylum game

This exciting new ride will reach speeds of up to 85kmh and pull 4.2Gs

The ride will feature 5 gut wrenching inversions as well as on-board audio

Riders will need to beware as The Joker tries to takeover Gotham City

Ride Statistics:

Speed= 85km/hr

Height= 32 metres approx

G Forces= 4.2Gs

Track Length=  765m

Ride Duration=  120 seconds approx (station to station)

Height Restriction = 140cm

Number of inversions= 5

First of its kind in the world
