Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, unveiled the first details of their latest interactive dark ride experience, JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS 4D, at IAAPA 2014.
The new rides, the first motion-based, interactive dark rides in North America, are set to debut at Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Over Texas in 2015.
Tom Iven, senior vice president of U.S. park operations for Six Flags, said, "An enormous amount of detail and creativity has gone into producing what will be one of the most exciting and immersive dark rides experiences in the industry.”
JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS will feature bespoke state-of-the-art animatronics. The four-minute journey will include five huge interactive 3D screens, incredible hi-definition animation and a dramatic musical score as well as 4D effects simulating fire, cannon blasts and explosions.
Multi-degrees-of-freedom motion-based ride vehicles created by Oceaneering will be fitted with six interactive laser blasters for guests to use to fight The Joker, Lex Luthor and a robot army as part of the JUSTICE LEAGUE team in the BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS.
John Wood, CEO of Sally Corporation, said, "By incorporating the dynamic ride system created by Oceaneering, along with the massive 3D screens, interactive game play, and highly detailed scenery by Sally Corp., we can achieve the next generation of interactive thrills.”
