The Bat Suspended Roller Coaster at Kings Island

The Bat
Fly the Bat. It’s a non-stop fright.

In the shadows of falling darkness, wings of the night creature await their silent signal from the moon. Flying madly through a starless sky the frenzy flight of the Bat takes you by surprise and leaves you breathless, hanging in mid-air, captured alive. The Bat’s tracks are above the car rather than below it, and the cars hang down from the overhead rails. The Bat’s cars are designed to swing out to the side when the trains round the numerous bends and curves on its 2,352-foot long circuit at speeds up to 51 mph. The ride experience begins with a climb up a 90-foot lift. At the top, the train dips slightly before turning roughly 225 degrees to the right. The train then drops 70 feet into a valley banking right at the bottom as it begins to climb into a horseshoe element. The cars swing up and around to the left before exiting the horseshoe parallel to the same position during entry. Another drop follows into the same valley, with another banked turn to the right followed by a quick turn to the left before taking riders through a final series of sharp turns, each sending the train swinging from one side to the other before heading back into the station.
