Mr Freeze roller coaster

Leaked video footage appears to confirm that the Mr Freeze roller coasters at Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St Louis will be renamed as Mr Freeze Reverse Blast for the 2012 season.

The two coasters, which are mirror images of each other, will be both be reversed so that the trains start off travelling backwards around the circuit. The change has been rumored for several months, with a video posted by Great American Thrills claimed to have been leaked by Six Flags Over Texas itself.

The video, embedded below, shows the trains on the park's version of Mr Freeze travelling in reverse and confirms the new name:

Meanwhile, Six Flags St Louis has released an official teaser video that appears to point towards a similar update to its own version of Mr Freeze:

Mr Freeze opened at Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St Louis in 1998. The ride was originally intended to tie in with the Batman & Robin movie that was released a year earlier, and was named after Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in the movie.

Manufactured by Premier Rides, both coaster sees riders launched from 0 to 70 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds. The trains then race through a 190-feet tunnel before climbing a 150-feet-tall top hat inversion. After travelling around an overbanked turn, the trains climbs up a vertical spike, before plummeting back around the remainder of the course in reverse.
