North America's Newest 4D Interactive Dark Ride Opens at Six Flags St. Louis
EUREKA, MO, (SLFP.com) - Six Flags St. Louis, the Coaster Capital of Missouri, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, has opened JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis.

"We are always looking for innovative, one-of-a-kind experiences to bring our guests," said Park President Dave Roemer. "By teaming up with the popular DC Comics characters and using the newest technology on the JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis attraction, we are able to deliver unmatched, interactive thrills. The special effects, gaming and 3D imagery will have guests fully engaged in this dark ride adventure that is second to none."

JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis offers guests the ultimate dark ride experience by combining the following elements:

  • Guests step into a comic book-inspired adventure when they team up with SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN, GREEN LANTERN and THE FLASH after accepting the challenge to outwit and foil Lex Luthor and The Joker's plans to destroy the city of Metropolis.
  • Riders travel in sleek six-passenger custom-designed, multi-degrees-of-freedom vehicles each armed with a stun blaster. The motion-based cars will twist, tilt and spin while going through hairpin, 360-degree turns and the world's first-ever virtual loops on a dark ride, all synched to the action on the screens.
  • The ride combines fully immersive 3D computer imagery and graphics along with full-sensory special effects of fire and explosions to engage guests in complete 4D experience.
  • The ride uses real-time gaming allowing the characters and elements to react with the 600 virtual and tangible targets featured throughout the attraction, including a life-like villain animatronic, robotic henchmen, helicopters, a hologram and an interactive fog screen.
  • Riders' favorite DC Comics Super Heroes can be seen on 18 screens, including 5 17' x 30' interactive 3D screens, throughout the ride. The interaction system is designed to allow an unlimited amount of targets to be displayed during the on-screen shooting sequence.

In 2014, guests were introduced to the Tsunami Soaker, a classic teacup ride with an exciting twist. You and up to five other passengers will hop into one of the nine round boats that sit atop a circular floor in a pool of water.

As the ride begins, the floor will lower into the water until it disappears, allowing your boat to float and splash 'round and 'round. Your raft will spin in circles while the other boats twist around you, creating a dizzying experience.

Each seat on the boat is armed with a giant water gun so every rider can participate in the action. While your boat rotates around the wet course, you can engage in an adrenaline-pumping water battle, shooting your pistol at other riders and innocent bystanders, soaking them with bursts of water. This drenching water attraction will be a great way to cool off on a hot day and enjoy a fun family adventure.

In 2013, the latest thrill addition to Six Flags St. Louis, Boomerang, launched bringing the park's lineup of coasters to nine. Boomerang sends riders screaming through loops and rolls not once, but twice, offering a different experience than any other coaster in the park.

In spring 2012, Six Flags launched the coolest coaster on the planet, MR. FREEZE: Reverse Blast! Riders travel backwards through a 190-foot tunnel, into a 180-degree inversion before climbing more than 200-feet in the air where they will find themselves suspended, dangling in the air, before repeating the entire chilling experience.

The theme park opened its 2000 season with THE BOSS, one of the top 10 wooden roller coasters in the country at that time. Riders experience 50% airtime in a double-down double-drop of 150-feet. The ride comprises three more drops of 112-ft., 103-ft and 72-ft and a series of "airtime" rabbit hops. Maximum speed is 66.3 mph with a G force of 3.

In 2008, the park introduced Evel Knievel, a 2,700-ft. ride experience that begins with an 80-ft. first drop at a 90 left turn angle, which is answered with a 55-ft. double down drop. Sixteen hills follow with camelbacks, a 40-ft. fan curve and multiple high-banked turns at up to 67 angles.

Six Flags St. Louis has additional roller coasters including The Screamin' Eagle (3,872-ft wood), Batman The Ride (steel), Ninja-The Black Belt of Coasters (steel) and The River King Mine Train (steel track/wood structure).

Hurricane Harbor, is a 12-acre tropical paradise set among 20,000 tropical plants including palm trees and a volcano. The water park features 1,500 tons of sand and 1.2-million gallons of fun with six water attractions. A series of four brightly colored tube slides offer guests a watery trip down their choice of partially or totally enclosed 400-ft. twisting tubes from 5-stores high.

Hurricane Harbor also features Wahoo Racer. This six-lane water racer features a triple drop layout that provides maximum speed and airtime. Riders race head-first on sled-type mats down 262-feet of steep drops and rolls reaching speeds of 35-mph. The water attraction is located between The Big Kahuna and the Speed Slide complex in Hurricane Harbor.

In 2009, Six Flags St. Louis took its daily parade over the top and leave guests in awe with the introduction of a nighttime parade, Glow in the Park. This unparalleled nighttime spectacular featurew six custom-designed floats, two additional mobile units, 65 light-adorned performers and 35 support staff and technicians. Floats light up the night with vibrant, multicolored lights illuminating the streets and filling the air with specially arranged cirque-style music. Drummers, puppeteers, singers, dancers and kinetic stilt walkers surround the floats making the Glow in the Park parade unlike any other in the Midwest.

Guests visiting Six Flags St. Louis relive some of the park's history through Then and Now signs located throughout the park and at the Gallery of Thrills in the Palace Theater Lobby showcasing displays, photos and videos of the past forty years. The park is pulling out all the stops to make the 2012 season one to remember for years and years to come.
