Be prepared for a shock.....We are excited to announce a terrifying new ride experience straight from your darkest nightmares, ARKHAM ASYLUM – SHOCK THERAPY. Adrenaline junkies will be strapped into a brand new train featuring electrifying on board audio and experience awesome upper body freedom like never before, with pulls of 4.2Gs and speeds of up to 85km/h. You better beware of the Joker in this world’s first Arkham Asylum game themed ride. Are you ready for your dose of Shock therapy?
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 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.
