They unveiled some of the animatronics and the ride vehicle for Battle For Metropolis today at IAAPA. Check this out:



I have to say that I am even more excited about this ride.

Also here is a press release about the reveal today.

I have to wonder if SFStL will go cheaper than what Texas is doing, or will this thing be top notch. I mean the market doesn't exactly support a nice ride like this.

I imagine it will be the exact same ride - cheaper to make one design for two parks rather than two different designs.

They are going to be slightly different as SFOT will have a couple of more cars than the one at SFStL. I believe this is due to using an preexisting building at SFStL and building a totally new one for SFOT.

SFOT's is going in the old Adventure Theater building (motion movie) with an extra building addition added to the back.

While the ride paths might be different due to being in different buildings, the storyline and animatronics/screens are likely to be the same due to cost.
