Movie World on the Gold Coast has officially opened their newest ride today, honouring Warner Bros. Interactive’s Batman Arkham Asylum video game.

The ride is the first of it’s kind in the world and is the re-launched version of the 17 year old ‘Lethal Weapon’ coaster. Named “Arkham Asylum – Shock Therapy”, the new ride features on-board audio as it accelerates to speeds of up to 85km per hour.

The theme park assures the feeling of 4.2G’s hitting your gut is “awesome”, and your upper body will experience total “freedom” – let’s hope that’s a marketing term. The total height of the ride is 32 meters and travels a total of 765 meters.

Along the way, you will be tormented by The Joker, Herley Quinn (below) and Killer Croc. The new ride kicks off the theme park’s Easter celebrations for the school holidays.
