    This would be tough to judge unless you've been to them all to compare. But I can say that SFA has to be the worst simply because Superman is housed in Gotham and Two Face isn't. Its like the whole park needs to be re-themed as Gotham, not the portion of the park behind Wild One.

    I think SFOG has the best one. My homepark SFWOA has the worst one.

    SFWOA accually has one! I guess with a bit of Batman Knight Flight Themeing and Batman show. From what i have seen on Pictures SFOT or SFGADV SFOG i have never seen pictures that give clue of themeing really. I choose Six Flags Great Adventure Because Two coasters and a stunt show with theming. Batman: The Ride has the garbage and i guess Batcave And Chiller has a really big circular building with hands on it so and there are fake buildings with Gotham Theme and chiller station could go with it too

    Why superman?? because hes a comicbook character too.....and i have a question is the superman in the same section as these batman rides?

    I would have to choose Great adventure for having the best Gotham city theming Because all Stunt show 2 bat man rides and the theming for Batman The ride, i think is awsome.. i love walking through that line and seeing the Broken down police car and all the Junk everywhere like the toilet lol

    Well, I don't know which Six Flags has the [I]best[/I] Gotham City, but I [I]do[/I] know which one has the worst. Six Flags Worlds Of Adventure's Gotham City is extremely fake. Oh well, who cares about theming when you have Batman Knight Flight to make up for it?

    I vote for SFOG. The section they used for this really helps create the "gotham" effect. The one @ SFGAM is in desparate need of improvement. They put it in the middle of Yankee Harbor which does not fit @ all.

    SFGAm doesn't even have a Gotham City! Only the B:TR que is themed to Gotham City, and everything else around it is Yankee Harbor themed.

    That would be true if only The Riddler's Revenge was in the 'Gotham City Backlot' themed area in the first place. Even though it's RIGHT NEXT TO Batman:The Ride, it still resides in the adjacent themed area called 'The Movie District'.

    Personally, I would say Six Flags Over Texas. Why? They have two world-class coasters in that area and it is beautifully landscaped. Even though the placement of Mr. Freeze : The Ride and Batman : The Ride are a bit off, that specific area is pretty. The only problem is that it doesn't have the classic "Gotham City" look, with that 'dark' look. It seems like a sunny, happy, no villains allowed Gotham City, which in truth, makes me feel sick and ruins the whole theming basis on Batman.

    Batman : The Ride & The Riddler's Revenge are probably the two closest seperate (including name wise) B&M rides in the world.

    At SFGAM, we don't have a Gotham part, mainly because we only have one ride that would fit in w/Gotham, and thats Batman. Um, but I do have to say I think B:TR, has some of the best theming of any coaster I've been on. Walking through the park, then through the back alleys, then through the sewer, and finally in the bat cave. I'm sure all other b:tr's are themed the same way, so cool beans.

    I have to go with SFWOA because its the only one ive seen, but i was impressed with it. But im sure if I saw the other ones my opinion would change, but im used to Disaster Transports confusing themeing, so any themeing is good for me.

    Hello everybody,whats going on with you people?Six Flags Great Adventure has the best gotham city. They have batman the ride with great theming and batman and robin the chiller with extraordinary theming and its a helluva ride. The first and only duel Lim coaster. Nitro is kinda in it but not really.

    SFGAdv has good rides in Gotham City, but no real theming to the area except for the queue to B:TR. SFMM's is good because the Gotham area is definitely its own secluded themed area, but it's lame how they didn't extend Gotham to include RR. It would be so much better if they had incorporated the Movie District into Gotham City.

    I like SFMM's Gotham City because it is, like HisDougness said, it's it's own themed section. It also has two flatrides themed to Gotham City, The ACME Atom Smasher (a Hymilaya) and Grinder Gear Works (a super round-up), SFMM needs to do something about there themeing.
