BATMAN 80th Celebration

Long Live the Bat

On August 17, 2019, BATMAN will be celebrating 80 years! We at Six Flags are so excited to share this monumental celebration with BATMAN, and want to invite you to join us. We'll have some great things throughout the day, but most importantly some Early  Ride Time on the ride that bears his name!

Check out all the details below. 

Early Ride Time

From 9:10 a.m. - 10:30 a.m., we will be starting the fun celebration of BATMAN with some Early Ride Time.  Guests wishing to participate need to wear a BATMAN clothing item to join the Early Ride Time! That means each guest must be wearing a BATMAN t-shirt, shorts, shoes, hat, or other accessory. One item is required per person in order to get into the ride line.  

To celebrate 80 years, we will be offering 80 minutes of Early Ride Time on BATMAN The Ride in Yankee Harbor. 

BUT THERE'S MORE! We'll add in a few more SUPER rides in Yankee Harbor and Orleans Place: THE JOKER Free Fly Coaster, SUPERMAN Ultimate Flight and THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster. These rides will be available until 10:30 for the Early Ride Time for guests wearing BATMAN clothing or accessories! 

You will need to have one BATMAN item for each guest who wishes to enter any of these ride lines from 9:10 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

The rest of the park and all other rides will open beginning at 10:30 a.m. 

Members Can Ride Too!

If you're a Gold Plus, Platinum, Diamond or Diamond Elite Member, you can ride no matter what! Feel free to rep some of your cool BATMAN swag, but know that your card allows you to enter the ride lines for the Early Ride Time on August 17. One card is required per person in order to enter the ride lines from 9:10 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. Be sure to show your card to the attendant as you enter the line.

BATMAN Photo Ops

Need to take a break from all those coasters? We have a few places that will be just perfect to grab a photo to complete your BATMAN filled day. Take a photo in front of the BATMOBILE in Yankee Harbor, in front of the exclusive BATMAN photo backdrop in Yankee Harbor, or next to the statue of BATMAN himself in front of Heroes!

Foam Party

At 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. on August 17, we'll be hosting a Foam Party in Hometown Square. Come dance around in the bubbles with your friends and family while we listen to great music. It's a great place for fun photos and laughs. Be sure to join us!
