Justice League: Battle for Metropolis Coming to Six Flags Over Texas and St. Louis!

In a bit of a weird twist, the newest interactive dark ride additions to the Six Flags parks is actually coming to two parks for 2015. Both Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis will be getting Justice League: Battle for Metropolis as their new attractions.

Sorry, no new coasters, but this one definitely looks like an interesting spin on things as well.

“Introducing a dark ride that combines this level of technology and the popular DC Comics brand will bring an unmatched, interactive experience to our guests in 2015,” stated Tom Iven, senior vice president of U.S. park operations for Six Flags. “The addition of JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS is another example of our company’s commitment to delivering new and innovative thrills in every park, every year.”

The pair represent a first for Six Flags and definitely nice to see more dark rides out there. So, what's the whole story behind this? Well, here's the rundown from the park on just what riders will get to experience before and during their ride through the Hall of Justice and the rest of the 20,000sqft attractions:
After touring the fully immersive 3D Hall of Justice, you’ll receive your very own stun gun to battle the bad guys then it’s a swift ride through a dazzlingly designed Metropolis cityscape, deep into the shadows of Lex Corp. Lifelike animatronics, cutting edge special effects, 3D video, eye-popping graphics, real-time gaming and a mind-tingling sound-scape make this journey to justice an utterly interactive experience. Will you help SUPERMAN and BATMAN rescue the other members of the JUSTICE LEAGUE from Lex Luthor’s and The Joker’s evil plans? Join the JUSTICE LEAGUE Reserve Team today to save your favorite superheroes!
For anyone that's ridden Men in Black: Alien Attack at Universal Orlando, the concept is pretty much the same as here. Well, except for the 3D part that is. So, now that we know the details, here's a little video of what to expect as well. Interesting thing to note, the ride cars in the video aren't the ones that will be used for the ride at all, they only seat four people and the ones at Six Flags will seat six.


Stay tuned for more updates from the rest of the Six Flags parks as more announcements have been released about projects for 2015 at every park!
