JACKSON TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (WABC) -- Six Flags' new thrill ride 'The Joker' is back in business.

A malfunction threatened the debut of the free-fly coaster, which features head-over-heel flips.

Crews had to shut down the ride earlier this week and make adjustments after they found it was rocking too much.

Saturday, 'The Joker' makes its official public debut.

The ride takes inspiration from the chaos created by Batman's infamous nemesis, incorporating the unpredictable spinning of carnival rides into a modern roller coaster.
