I thought it would be fun to combine two things that I really enjoy, roller coasters and comic book characters. And there are so many super hero and super villian-themed roller coasters that it seemed like a good idea to put them in a March Madness-style tournament and have you pick the winners. The Set Up In order to make the list of entrants manageable, here are a few conditions: The tournament includes roller coasters only, not other types of rides. The current theme of the roller coasters had to be related to a super hero or super villain character. The coasters had to be in the United States. The coaster had to already be open. So the new Joker 4D coasters are not included Clones with the same theme count as one. So the Mr. Freeze coasters at Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Over Texas would be one entry, not two. Lastly, I chose not to include junior roller coasters like Catwoman’s Whip. Mostly just to make the numbers easier to manage. Round 1 of the Comic Book Roller Coasters Tournament Round 1 will be the play in round as these 8 roller coasters will battle it out for spots in the top 16. Here’s a breakdown of Round 1: The Dark Knight indoor roller coasters at Great Adventure and Great America versus the Joker 4D roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure Batman 4D roller coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas versus Joker’s Jinx at Six Flags America Flying roller coaster Batwing at Six Flags America versus stand up roller coaster Green Lantern at Six Flags Great Adventure The floorless looper, Batman – The Dark Knight at Six Flags New England, versus the Bizarro floorless coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure Round 1 Has Ended Round 1 has ended. View the results below and vote in Round 2 here. Joker (4D Coaster) 71% over Dark Knight (Indoor Coaster) 29% Joker’s Jinx (Launched Looper) 75% over Batman (4D Coaster) 25% Bizarro (Floorless Looper) 96% over Batman The Dark Knight (Floorless Looper) 4% Green Lantern (Stand Up) 68% over Batwing (Flying) 32% I’m still deciding on when I’ll announce the winners and we’ll move on to Round 2 (The Top 16). But, stay tuned! What’s Your Take? What do you think of Round 1? Which out of the 8 roller coasters would be your top pick?

Reply Joel March 5, 2017 Good question. I should be more specific. I mean clones of rides that have the same themes. Reply Josh (TwistedRideOp) March 10, 2017 Las Vegas reviews coming soon? 😀 Reply Joel March 12, 2017 Posted the first review (Big Apple Coaster/Manhattan Express) from that trip yesterday. Hope you enjoyed it! Reply Amanda March 22, 2017 I am a fan of amusement park rides and I often go to parks to try different kinds of amusement rides, including kiddie rides and thrill rides. However, until now, I am always afraid of the some thrill rides, especially, the giant roller coaster. Though I am a little afraid, I always try my best to conquer the thrilling feeling to ride on them! It is so cool! I really love this game!
