Journey Through GOTHAM in its Darkest Hour!

If crime fighting’s his business, THE DARK KNIGHT has plenty of work to keep him busy. And on this all-enclosed indoor thrill coaster with more than 1,200 feet of track, you’ll get your chance to lend a helping hand. If you can outwit THE JOKER, that is!

At Harvey Dent’s press conference, THE JOKER interrupts the proceedings and complete pandemonium breaks loose. You’re evacuated to the GOTHAM CITY subway to make your escape. Well, there’s nothing like a nice little nerve-wracking stroll down into an authentic GOTHAM CITY rail station. As you may know, GOTHAM’s a rough town, and this run-down dilapidated subway station has seen better days. Board a vandalized train for a relentless ride through the very dark abandoned subway line, in an elaborately designed cinematic set. It’s covered with graffiti and lit by flickering strobes. If you keep your eyes peeled you just might see THE JOKER or THE DARK KNIGHT himself.

You will face six complete 180-degree hairpin turns, climb unseen hills, plunge into pitch darkness, and dip into unforeseen danger. Throughout the hair-raising twists and turns, THE JOKER is hot on your trail, tormenting you with hallucinatory images. The sinister, demented presence seems to be everywhere. Now you know why it isn’t easy fighting crime in town like this!
