MARCH 22, 2012 -- Six Flags St. Louis today announced they are reversing Mr. Freeze. The all-new ride experience will be called Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast. Riders will travel backwards through a 190-foot tunnel, into a 180-degree inversion before climbing more than 200 feet in the air where they will find themselves suspended, dangling in the air, before repeating the entire experience.
The ride will maintain the original Mr. Freeze theme, patterned after Batman's cold-hearted arch rival in the DC Comics Batman series. The adventure begins with a chilling walk through "Snowy's Cones," an old abandoned ice cream warehouse that secretly doubles as the favorite hideout of this "Villain of Chillin." By the time riders discover that "Snowy's Cones" isn't an ordinary ice cream factory, it's too late! Mr. Freeze is behind the controls of his iciest revenge, the coolest coaster on the planet. Riders strap into one of the 20-passenger seats and take off on the reverse ride-of-a-lifetime, covering nearly 1,500-feet of track at spine-chilling speeds of up to 70 mph, making it the fastest reverse roller coaster ride in Missouri.
Climb on David Freese's Freeze Train
Feeling a little chicken about going on this ride? Perhaps you'd feel better riding alongside Cardinals World Series MVP David Freese? Freese will be one of the very first to try out Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast, and Six Flags St. Louis is holding a contest to see who will ride with him. Enter to win a seat on David Freese's "Freeze Train" at www.sixflags.com\stlouis beginning today. The Freeze Train pulls out of the station on Thursday, April 26, and winners also receive lunch and a meet and greet with Freese.
The ride is scheduled to open to the public at both parks in May. Six Flags St. Louis opens for its 2012 season on Friday, April 6. Also new this year, Bonzai Pipeline will open at Hurricane Harbor.
