Batman ride at Six Flags Over Georgia to run backward

AUSTELL, Ga. (AP) — Holy roller coaster! The Batman ride at Six Flags Over Georgia is going to run backward when the park opens for the season March 14.

The ride opened in the park in 1997 and has given more than 16 million rides since then, but they've all been in the same direction. The new twist on the ride's old twists will take the cars up a 10-story hill in reverse, then let them fly 50 mph backward along 2,700 feet of track.

The reverse operation will only last for several weeks into early spring.

The park in Austell, Georgia, near Atlanta, will operate weekends through May 17 before opening daily for the summer season. It will also be open daily April 4-12 during the local spring break.
