Six Flags Over Texas is about to debut three new rides and a new expanded Gotham City area at their park in Arlington, TX. The three new rides include Riddler Revenge, CatWoman Whip and Harley Quin Spinsanity. In addition to the new rides the park has renovated the nearby Johnny Rockets Restaurant with new lighting and a larger kitchen. Let’s jump into a look at the rides.

The Catwoman Whip is a spinning flat ride with open air, suspended passenger vehicles give riders the sensation of flying sixty feet through the air at 25 miles per hour. The main ride mechanism is connected to an arm and extends upwards during the ride operation. At the peak this ride raises passengers 60 ft into the air. Riders will also be spun upside down over and over 10 times before returning to the ground.
