The Bat was a steel, suspended roller coaster located at Kings Island amusement park in Mason, Ohio. Designed by Arrow Development, the ride was billed as the first and only suspended roller coaster in the world when it opened to the public on April 26, 1981. The model took several years to develop and was considered a prototype by Arrow. Though the ride was very popular, it was plagued with mechanical problems and frequent closures that led to a short lifespan. The ride was permanently closed after just three seasons in 1983 and removed from the park the following year.

dbo:abstract
  • Tha Bat in Kings Island (Kings Mills, Ohio, USA) war eine Stahlachterbahn vom Modell Suspended Coaster des Herstellers Arrow Dynamics, die 1981 eröffnet wurde. Sie war der Prototyp der Suspended Coaster des Herstellers. Aufgrund zahlreicher Probleme mit der Bahn, wurde sie bereits 1983 wieder geschlossen und ab 1984 abgerissen. Da die Schienen in den Kurven nicht geneigt waren, wurden die Schienen und die Stützen stark beansprucht. Die Bremsschwerter waren auf dem Boden der Wagen montiert, was dazu führte, dass die Räder beim Bremsen stark beansprucht wurden. Die Stoßdämpfer waren aufgrund der starken Schwingungen hohen Kräften ausgesetzt. Außerdem kam es zu Haarrissen in den Rädern und Wagen. Arrow Dynamics optimierte das Suspended-Coaster-Modell und 1984 wurde in Six Flags AstroWorld mit XLR-8 ein Modell eröffnet, welches über zwei Jahrzehnte in Betrieb war. (de)
