    Whaaat?

    That's awesome! A really tall swing ride, huh? Certainly fits with the Lasso motif. Hope it contains a lot of Wonder Woman footage on the line monitors and a gift shop with a lot of Diana's best stuff!

    Great to see Diana getting so much love in so many different areas. Her time has finally arrived, people!
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    Who will WB contact to help commemorate the opening, Lynda Carter or Gal Gadot if she's available?

    Sorry to bump the thread, but that's Six Flags Great Adventure's new Wonder Woman ride (I understand they have the same ride at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and that's what it's a picture of), not the Six Flags America version.

    That's the Six Flags America version.
