It is a decent kiddie coaster. Nothing exactly special about it, back is the way to go.

Its not bad, its just not good. The ride looks cool, but its just too tame for me. There were some good turns though and it didnt have a line.

This ride is actually fun if you sit in the back. Its weird to be accelerating up hills and slowing down going down the other side thanks to the absolutely massive train.

Catwoman’s Whip really is the forgotten coaster of Six Flags New England in my opinion. First off, Bizarro simply makes every other ride featured in DC Superhero World forgettable. Second, the attraction simply is lackluster when compared to the park’s other, far more thrilling attractions. Hey, at least this has a definite name now (remember the Poison Ivy’s Tangled/Twisted Train identity crisis this attraction used to have).

Six Flags really has made the ride fit in. The ride has very nice landscaping that hides the layout from view and makes it more exciting than the standard tivoli coaster. Despite it having a standard layout, all of the swooping drops and low-to-the-ground turns are all well hidden and therefore quite surprising, though Six Flags seemed to trim the plants significantly this year and ruined the effect somewhat. Anyway, this generally is a walk-on thanks to the large train and the more popular neighbor that dominates the park’s skyline.

In the back, the first two drops have some great speed due to the abnormally long train resulting in some powerful laterals on the way down. However, the train’s long length also leads to the ride being painfully slow at points as well. That being said, the few low-to-the-ground turns are decent, albeit slow, but definitely are a pleaser for the kids, this ride’s target audience. One final note, the front is definitely the seat for the less adventurous since the train’s long length prevents front-seat riders from truly experiencing the few, gentle drops Catwoman has to offer.

Catwoman's Whip is a decent family coaster in my opinion since it has something for everyone. The front is slow and suitable for the smallest of riders, while the back actually is a surprisingly intense ride despite its size thanks to those aforementioned laterals. Not only that, but the entire ride is glass-smooth and very rideable for any rider. However, it's just an average coaster in my opinion since it just doesn't compare to the park's other coasters or many of the other coasters I’ve been on, but it’s stillworth giving a ride or two since it’s always a walk-on. Personally, I like Rudy’s (yet another large Tivoli) at Santa’s Village better because of the extra lap, but Catwoman’s Whip isn’t half bad at all.

This ride was so boring. Only ride it if you have a few minutes to kill before the Batman stunt show. The ride is well themed, though.

I rode in the back, so the LONG train seemed to have more speed. The landscaping around this ride looks rather unkempt. Not sure if this was on purpose to give the illusion of poision ivy (the plant, not the character) twisting around the train or just the result of not keeping up with it and letting the plants run wild, but it works (and it also hides the layout from view). Only down side... they only run the train through the course once, and it is a very short course. I suppose this is necessary during busy times though.

Poison Ivy was a fun little family coaster. And I was impressed with how long both the track and the train was. Also, the park left a good amount of foilage around the ride which makes it a little harder to see the entire layout. A must ride for kids and families and if youre older its a nice break from the faster, more intense coasters. Definetly not a kids only coaster, if you have time, give it a ride. Final Rating - 5.5 (Average- Approaching Slightly Above Average)

Cute little kiddie coaster that is actually rather fun for adults as well. Never a very long line, so give it a try!
