Coming from the outdoor queue, riders enter a room where they view a live broadcast of a press conference with Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart). Almost immediately, The Joker interrupts the feed and his messages (such as "HA HA!") start to appear all over the walls. They proceed to another room where they see themselves on the overhead monitors. The two guests closest to the camera have clown masks digitally superimposed over their faces.
At the loading station, the cars move through continuously. Riders unload at the rear of the platform, after which those in line immediately board. Unlike almost all the other coasters in the parks, there are no gates. Once onboard, it proceeds onto the lift. The ride itself consists of several sharp hairpin turns and sudden drops, accented by various eerily lit buildings placed alongside the track. The experience is accompanied by an ominous score.
