The 5 Most Exciting Announcements from Theme Parks This Month (February 2015)

This past month has seen a number of updates for theme park fans, including the confirmation of a long-rumored development from an international Disney park, a new milestone for a record-breaking roller coaster, a limited time experience at Six Flags Over Georgia and more! 

1. Shanghai Disneyland will debut in 2016

Though we’ve suspected this news for a while, Disney finally made it official this past week that Shanghai Disneyland would not be making its late 2015 target opening date, and would instead be opening sometime in 2016 (our guess is probably in the fall/winter).

Though this delay is a disappointing development, Disney did relase some new images (below) showing progress on the Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle of the Sunken Treasure attraction as well as the new Shanghai Disneyland hotel and the Toy Story Hotel.

2. Batman to run backwards through late spring at Six Flags Over Georgia 

Batman: The Ride will be running backwards at the beginning of the 2015 season at Six Flags Over Georgia this March. Screamscape reports that visitors wanting to check out this unique ride experience will need to get to the park fast though, as the backwards trains will be moving on to another Six Flags in May (probably Magic Mountain, if the rumor mill is correct), leaving visitors only two months to experience this ride in reverse.
