Six Flags Fiesta Texas has revealed it's "most exciting coaster" in the park's 22 years of existence ... Batman: The Ride.

"Batman: The Ride features a massive, imposing, floating and twisting track frame, in which ride vehicles begin their journey by traveling up a 120-foot elevator-type lift before being released for their highly unusual sensory journey … including two beyond-vertical free falls, in addition to the six head-over-heels spins," details a ride press release. "This attraction, based on the comic, will offer a total immersion into the Batman storyline with numerous special effects including the world-famous Batmobile and Bat-Signal."

This 4D Wing Coaster is said to be the first of its kind in the world. The ride seats up to eight passengers, with seats facing each other.

Park president Martin Bozer said in a statement: “Every year we continue to provide more and more innovative technology and excitement for our park guests and season pass holders. Batman: The Ride is an entirely new concept in ride engineering and will provide a sensory experience like no other coaster. The unanticipated tumbling will add even more thrills as riders travel along the dipping and swirling track."

Batman: The Ride is set to debut in the summer of 2015. Watch above
