Sally and Six Flags win achievement award for Justice League dark ride

Justice League: Battle for Metropolis bridges the gap between traditional dark ride and thrill ride
Sally Corporation's Justice League: Battle for Metropolis dark ride won the Outstanding Achievement at this year's TEA Thea Awards.

The ride, which is located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California, was developed in partnership with Six Flags Entertainment Corporation and DC Entertainments and has previously won IAAPA's Best New Product and Impact Awards.

Now in its seventh iteration, Justice League bridges the gap between a traditional dark ride and a thrill ride. It combines physical and animated sets with animatronics, 3D video, projection mapping, special effects, stun-blasters, interactive targets and custom-created soundtracks to create a exhilarating interactive adventure suitable for the entire family.

It is currently in operation at several Six Flags parks across the US and Mexico, including Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis.

John Wood, chairman and CEO of Sally Corp said: "Winning a Thea Award for Justice League: Battle for Metropolis is amongst the highest honours an attraction can receive."

"We are delighted that Six Flags Corporation has been recognised for its bold move into the themed entertainment arena with such an advanced and highly acclaimed dark ride attraction. Being recognised by your peer professionals for this achievement makes it all the more special."

Neal Thurman, park president at Six Flags Magic Mountain, said: "We are thrilled and humbled to receive this recognition."

"Justice League: Battle for Metropolis has been a game-changer for our company. This thrilling dark ride introduced a completely new level of innovation with the most sophisticated technology available.

"The response from guests and industry experts alike has been nothing short of spectacular."

Sally Corp and Six Flags Entertainment will collect their award at a gala ceremony taking place in Anaheim next April.
