HOLY CRAP! I might actually have a reason to go to Mexico rather than drugs and cheap booze! Since AZ does border Mexico I might as well take a trip down there sometime next year in my busy schedule.

Thanks for keeping us up-to-date and posting the official announcement.

^ take another hit dude....Mexico may border AZ, but Mexico City would be a long a$$ drive for you. That's like living in San Diego and going to Oregon cause it borders CA.

I think it was mentioned a while back that people may not be so critical of the ride there. Though it would be nice to see them add everything that is supposed to be there and not leave stuff out at the last minute like they did at Great Adventure.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

lol :lolr:

Well actually, there is a big theory about it.

Before Shapiro arrives to the company, the directors of Six Flags Mexico travelled to Magic Mountain to ride Tatsu and other coasters. They caw and compared all the coasters to see which kind of coaster fits better to SF Mexico.

The rummors told that the first B&M coaster for The park and the country, was on the designing process. Then Shapiro arrived, and we know the rest of the story.

No one knows what happened with the proyect, but maybe the answer can be given at 2010.

Well... NOW HERE ARE THE NEWS!!

Official press release in spanish:

LA MÁS EMOCIONANTE AVENTURA LLEGARÁ A SIX FLAGS MEXICO EN 2009: THE DARK KNIGHT COASTER


La nueva atracción de Six Flags Mexico que abrirá sus puertas en 2009
Es un juego en el interior de un edificio inmerso en la oscuridad con sorprendentes efectos especiales, basado en la película de Warner Bros. Pictures
Es una emocionante adición al paquete de entretenimiento de Six Flags Mexico

Ciudad de México, 13 de noviembre, 2008 – Siempre buscando sorprender y llamar la atención con nuevas experiencias para los invitados al parque, Six Flags Mexico se enorgullece en anunciar The Dark Knight Coaster, un juego mecánico en el interior de un edificio basado en el éxito en taquillas de Warner Bros. Pictures, The Dark Knight, el cual está programado para abrir sus puertas en la primavera de 2009.

The Dark Knight Coaster llevará el entretenimiento a un nivel completamente nuevo para los invitados de todas las edades, transformando a los pasajeros en ciudadanos de Gotham City – atrapados a la mitad de una ciudad bajo ataque y puesta de cabeza por The Joker. El viaje empezará cuando los invitados aborden un carro de tren de Gotham City y viajen a través de pasillos demenciales de giros, vueltas, subidas imprevistas e imágenes caóticas, mientras son atormentados por The Joker mismo. Cuando ellos intenten escapar al terror, su única esperanza es que el Guardián Silente de Gotham – Batman – pueda salvarlos.

The Dark Knight Coaster es más que solo un juego…es una aventura que utiliza la narrativa, movimiento físico, video, sonido y efectos especiales para traer a los invitados un emocionante juego, único en su especie, en completa oscuridad.

“Surgido del increíble éxito de la película, The Dark Knight Coaster será una excelente adición a lo que ya es una fuerte oferta de entretenimiento en Six Flags Mexico,” dijo Mark Shapiro, Presidente y CEO de Six Flags. “El juego combina la emoción de la películaThe Dark Knight con la reputación de la marca Six Flags de ser creadores de excitantes sensaciones. Familias y jóvenes por igual querrán experimentar este juego una y otra vez.”

Aunado a la colección más grande de montañas rusas en México, espectáculos de calidad internacional y el estreno de este año Magic Light Parade, The Dark Knight Coaster hará más sólido a Six Flags Mexico como el destino de entretenimiento familiar por excelencia en el país.

Compra un Pase Anual 2009 y experimenta The Dark Knight Coaster durante todo el año. Los Pases Anuales 2009 ya están a la venta.

¡Únete a la aventura con el nuevo THE DARK KNIGHT COASTER!

What was supposed to be in GADv's ride and was left out? Just curious.
