4D Batman roller coaster tosses you to Gotham and back

A new ride coming to the Six Flags theme park in Fiesta, Texas, will have you gliding around like the Caped Crusader. Those with weak stomachs need not apply.

Next year, Batman: The Ride will open at the Six Flags theme park in Fiesta, Texas, and will whisk riders away to the world of Gotham. Batman: The Ride is among the world's first "4D free-fly roller coasters," where riders' seats spin around independently of how/where the car is headed.

Riders of Batman: The Ride will be flipped around at least six times, and the track itself features greater-than-90-degree drops to make sure their stomachs will be tied in knots.

Just watching the concept video of riders flipping around as the car makes its way along the track is enough to make the weak-stomached a bit uneasy. Batman: The Ride might just be the ride for for adventure-seekers with iron-clad stomachs looking for the next thrill.

Batman: The Ride is set to open in the summer of 2015 at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and it could be just the thing to turn Sad Batman's frown upside-down.
