Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast
In 2012, both Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Over Texas decided to shake things up by flipping their Mr. Freeze trains backwards.
On May 12th, 2012, with the help of Vanilla Ice, Six Flags Over Texas officially opened Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast.
In present day, Mr. Freeze is still operating in this fashion and is quite a thrilling experience.
Looking in the Mirror
Mr. Freeze at Six Flags Over Texas isn't actually the only Mr. Freeze roller coaster in existence.
Six Flags St. Louis located in Eureka, Missouri has the exact same model of the ride.
The Mr. Freeze at Six Flags St. Louis, however, is a mirrored version of the one at Six Flags Over Texas and does sport it's own paint scheme.
Opening Delays & Restraint Changes
Mr. Freeze was originally scheduled to open for the 1997 season with the release of the Batman & Robin movie. Arnold Schwarzenneger and George Clooney were even slated to be the very first riders.
Unfortunately, do to issues with the LIM launch system, Mr. Freeze did not open until the 1998 season.
In 2002, the over-the-shoulder restraints were replaced with a lapbar/setbelt restraint system, drastically improving the comfort of riders.
