What a classic Bat. I do love that swinging action since it looked like an intense ride with full of speed. Looked like it packed plenty of forces as well. :)

Wow, The Bat went PAST 90 degrees! What were the forces like since the swinging wasn't restricted? :) Pity about the design faults. You'ld think they could fix those and rebuild it but...which park would take the risk? :?

That looks sweet!!! My guess is the reason Arrow's later suspended designs were so tame was that all of the challenges with the Bat made them kind of gun shy with that type of design.

Have Fun

Yeah I could see 'the Bat' ride was swinging a lot, at more than 90 degrees, and it looked like they had a really intense ride when they were flung out so bad. :)
