The 15-minute imaginative 4D flight simulation ride, takes you to a universe where Batman tries to save us all from a poisonous green gas that Joker leaked into the Wayne Building, while combating notorious villains on the streets of Gotham along the way.
We got our tickets on the spot by the entrance of the Batman Dark Flight on the second floor (but you could also buy tickets online) there wasn’t a long queue and we got in just as it was about to start.
I got really excited as we entered because I did an internship at Disney World in Florida and it reminded me so much of it. If you’ve been to Disney World’s Epcot and tried out their “Soarin” ride, it’ll kind of remind you of that. Everything is thought of, from the yellow safety-belt to the way the seats rise to let the audience view the concave 3D screen and start the flight simulation to the multi-sensory special effects of wind, sudden stops, shaking seats and scents.
The ride wasn’t actually that intense or scary, it was a gentle simulated ride, suitable for kids or families. My boyfriend, Kalvin, thought it’d be more interesting if they had Batman characters walking around Studio City right after the ride, like they do at DisneyWorld or Disneyland to make it a bit more fun and exciting, especially for kids or DC Comics fans.
We both enjoyed it anyway but for me, it was really bitin like we say in Tagalog (meaning it leaves you expecting or wanting more). I got so used to going ride after ride at DisneyWorld and got exhausted by the end of the day from it, I guess it does depend on how much of an amusent parks’ fan you are. I wouldn’t recommend this if you have been to a lot of them because you’ll end up feeling just as bitin as me. If you haven’t had a lot of experience going into rides, I would recomend going as it is the world’s first Batman 4D flight simulation ride and only at Studio City Macau!
