Trust me, I am no JOKER, this ride has you plummeting down a huge 61.6m nosedive in a FLASH. The BRANIAC at Mac Coaster who designed this monster ride must have received a GREEN LANTERN to go ahead and give us a DEATH STROKE! (DC what I did there?)
Made of SUPERMAN Steel, the hyper coaster has you constantly feeling like you are CHEETAH death on the 1.4km track. Thrill-seekers will find their nirvana screaming down the fuchsia track at 115km/h. The HyperCoaster CAN send you around a 40 meter high non-inverted loop in REVERSE, FLASH speeds of 90km on a titled half loop that climbs 26.8meters only to – HOLY BATMAN – dive straight back down again, if you choose to ride the reverse seats! You know, in case experiencing the 480-degree helix for 150meters in seven seconds facing forward isn't enough?
On Thursday night we were invited to not only to experience the new HyperCoaster (in our best cocktail attire ) but to celebrate this momentous occasion with Movie World's CEO Clark Kirby officially announcing the ride as OPEN!
He sure knows how to throw a party. There were two DJ acts on a revolving stage, a much-loved open bar and an abundance of food choices.
DC Rivals joins the growing list of DC-themed thrills such as
Arkham Asylum, Superman Escape, Batwings Spaceshot and Green Lantern Coaster.
This is a must do attraction for all the thrill seekers, head on down to Movie World. I dare you to laugh in the Jokers face as you enjoy The tallest, longest and fastest HyperCoaster you will find this summer!
