The ride debuted at Six Flags Great Adventure in 1997. However, due to technical difficulties the park had another grand opening the next season. The ride was plagued with one failure after the other. Not only did they have to update the harness's on the cars, they also had to remove the zero-g roll on both the Batman and Robin track. 

Due to lack of power, both tracks could not be run at the same time. 

After many attempts to get the ride into top working condition, all hope was lost and the ride was taken down in 2007 and later sold to Beto Carrero World in South America.

The que however, remains in the park in a closed off area (the area is only open during fright fest and special events but the loading dock bulidng remains closed).

I remember going on that ride. Once. It knocked you around so much that it kinda cancelled out the fun. Weird to see it abandoned like that.

I also rode that, only once. Because like someone else said, it beat the snot out of you the entire time, thus making it less than desirable to ride again. Cool pics. :)

I think I rode that once too, so this was a little weird to see. I love photos of abandoned rides. Thanks for posting!

I remember hearing such SHIT about that ride. (The above comments totally confirm it, too.)

I'm a little disappointed I never got to try it. The biggest complaint I heard was that it knocked you around quite a bit, but my favorite ride was the "Great American Scream Machine," so I'm thinking I might have loved it... Haha.
