The Bat Roller Coaster at Canada's Wonderland

Park: Closed | View Hours
The Bat

On The Bat, riders are pulled backwards and launched through an unyielding corkscrew and a breathtaking loop. Riders travel at almost 75km/hour through the station, into a Cobra Roll which takes them directly into a climb up a second lift hill. Riders then experience a unique thrill as they travel backwards through the twists, turns and loops before returning to the station.

  • The train is pulled backwards from the station and up a 121 foot (36.88M) tall lift hill, before being released.
  • The rider travel frontwards and backwards, exepriencing a new and different sensation with each direction.
  • Opened in 1987; the ad campaign featured actor Joe Flaherty from SCTV as a vampire promoting the ride.

Guests must be 48" tall to ride.

Rider Safety Information

Min Height
  • A high-speed steel looping roller coaster which turns riders upside down three times forward, and then again while traveling backward. Riders will experience weightlessness and rapid movements from side to side.
  • A shoulder harness with a between-the-legs safety belt secures each rider over the head and across the chest.
  • Due to the nature of the restraint, this ride may not accommodate guests of a larger size.
  • Guests must have a minimum of two functioning extremities; one functioning arm and one functioning leg.
  • Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of one functioning arm and one functioning leg if the guest is able to form a saddle posture with leg remnants sufficient to brace self upright in the seat against the shoulder harness.
  • Guests with a cervical collar, neck brace, broken collar bone, full arm cast, braced arm cast, or full leg cast are not permitted to ride.
  • Alternate access is available at the ride exit to the left. Riders will have to transfer into the seat, on their own or with the assistance of a companion.
  • Please do not use the ride restraints for support while entering and exiting, as they will shift.
