A Villainous Twist
Whirligig, then known as Die Fledermaus, was an original attraction that opened with Fiesta Texas in 1992. A great family attraction, riders board their own swings and enjoy a calming ride spinning through the air. In 2018 the park announced that Whirligig would be refurbished and transformed into Crime Wave to coincide with the addition of The Joker Carnival of Chaos across the pathway. However, a “change in plans” was announced in 2019 and Whirligig will return to the park as DC Super-Villains Swing!
Die Fledermaus is renamed Whirligig.
Whirligig is closed in the summer for refurbishment. The ride was set to come back rethemed as Crime Wave in 2019.
Whirligig undergoes major refurbishment and retheming.
In February, the ride’s name is changed from Crime Wave to DC Super-Villains Swing prior to reopening.
Below is a look at digital renderings for the ride’s upper panels. Each panel will highlight a DC Comics villain.
