Batman: The Ride makes me wish I was 13 again.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio is getting a new Batman ride, and it looks disgustingly awesome. I remember standing in an hour-long line to ride the Batman ride in the Six Flags Great America in Chicago, but this is totally different.

This ride makes you go up and down and has drops that actually go upside down AND has those spinny chairs reminiscent of the gut churning state fair rides you used to love as a kid but get progressively less fun as you get older. (I mean, srsly, those rides hurt a lot more now as an adult. They're still fun, in moderation, but not like when you're 13 and could ride them all day.)

If you're heading to San Antonio this summer, you should try to get on this thing and report back how awesomebad it is.
