Six Flags Over Atlanta New Battle for Metropolis 4D Ride is Sweet

The other day my son, AKA KidFriendlyTV, and I had the opportunity to attend the press opening for Battle for Metropolis 4D at Six Flags Over Atlanta. Let me tell you, there’s nothing quite like attending a press conference in an amusement park world themed after the Justice League while all the reporters are donned in superhero capes. Literally nothing like it.

 

 

We checked out the new ride, played some games and got a little epic. We even met up with our local Atlanta friends Dayvee Sutton and Julius Droolius. So what did we think about the new ride?

 

 

Our Battle for Metropolis 4D Ride Review

 

The first thing you see when you get into the building is three statues of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. I loved these! Totally epic! Once you get to where you can see the ride there’s an animatronic Cyborg which I thought was super rad.

The ride is a 4D experience/shooting game. Kids always love those and us adult geeks love them too. I loved the special effects and mixed mediums of 4D and props. This ride is great for all ages. My tip is to sit in the front but there aren’t any bad seats. I just like being in the front.
