I enjoyed the overall ride more than Superman:Ultimate Flight. Going up the lift hill laying on your back is not painful like S:UF can be. Also a much better paced ride, but no element is as intense as the S:UF pretzel loop. Loses points as the ride was very slow loading/unloading which made a short line take 40 minutes with only one one train running. 4-5 minutes on average to load/unload each train.

While not a bad ride, it wasnt wonderful. It could have been longer, first of all. Another problem was that my foot kept slipping out of the ankle restraint and that was a little painful. Pacing was pretty good, i thought. And for a vekoma, it was amazingly smooth. I could probably rate higher if it wasnt raining while i was on this.

My second trip to SFA and my enthusiasm has waned for this ride. I kept wondering if the safety features were dependable and praying the buckle didnt burst open. I dont like being suspended on ferris wheels, skyrides, condors, or ski-lifts. I think this ride is in that category of rides.

Heres why people are afraid of this coaster--the soft restraint gives the rider a lot of room to float in the harness while it is going through the loops, turns and corkscrews. The backseat offers the most amazing force Ive ever felt when going through the vertical loop. Im not going to hold slow loading (a rampant problem at this park) against the incredible experience of the ride. Total Ecstacy and a little looser in its second year than in its first.

I just love riding Batwing.Its a very cool flying coaster. Its so neat on how you Recline up the lift hill. As you are flipped over you feel like your Actuaally flying.If you have not riden Batwing yet.You just got to take in flight on Batwing.

Excellent ride, fast and smooth. However, it is uncomfortable when you are laying on your back, and it breaks down quite a bit (the one day I was there it broke down twice).

One tip, make sure you have every belonging straped down, you WILL lose it if not. I speak from experiance here.

This coaster is one of the most intense, if not THE MOST INTENSE ride I have ever been on. It feels like you are going to be ripped right out of the harness the whole trip! At one point I had to look down because I thought I was losing my shorts, and the next thing I know I am getting crushed by the vertical loop. It is nonstop action from beginning to end. This is a ride you cant miss.

simply amazing. this was the most nervous ive been about a coaster since my first ride on millennium force. as i got on for the first time, and the seats lowered me on my back, i just kept saying over and over this is insane...this is insane... then as i went up the lift hill on my back looking up at the sky, the anticipation was building heavily. then i feel myself get flipped onto my stomach, and i put my hands out in front of me. and its all great from there on out. i loved the overbanked horseshoe turn, and the loop was MAJOR intensity. 2 inline twists + a helix = a great ending, following the wardley rule. i know that years from now this will have sentimental value for me for being the first roller coaster to truly make me feel like i was flying. i think its a little short, but an amazing coaster nonetheless...if you get to sfa, dont pass this up. its absolutely unreal.
