Six Flags Over Texas has confirmed that the updated Mr Freeze Reverse Blast roller coaster will reopen at the park on May 12, 2012.

Mr Freeze Reverse Blast is a revamped version of the existing Mr Freeze roller coaster, with the direction of the rides' trains having been reversed. The attraction will reopen at noon, with a special concert by 1980s rap superstar Vanilla Ice being held to commemorate the occasion.

The coaster will launch riders from 0 to 70 miles per hour in a backwards direction, traversing a series of inversions and turns before returning to the station in the opposite direction. An near-identical version of the ride will reopen at Six Flags St Louis on a yet-to-be-confirmed date in 2012.

Both versions of Mr Freeze were manufacture by Premier Rides, and are mirror images of each other. Following the initial launch, the coasters' trains 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.
