San Antonio, Tx. – A new roller coaster featuring “beyond-90-degree drops and six 360-degree spins” will open at Six Flags Fiesta in Texas next year.

A video released on Friday shows the Batman-themed coaster’s dramatic twists and turns in the thrilling ride, which claims to be the “world’s first 4D free-fly roller coaster.”

The theme park described the ride as the “most exciting thrill ride” in its 22-year history.

“The Ride employs ultra-modern magnetic technology, which causes riders to flip head over heels with the feeling of pure weightlessness,” the park said in a news release.

The coaster is scheduled to open summer 2015.
