With spectacular thrill rides debuting around the world, summer 2013 is set to be a noisy season for roller coasters.
Some of the scariest have already opened.
"We're seeing increased investments and the amusement parks are putting in some really innovative rides," says Dave Lipnicky, economist and volunteer public relations director for American Coaster Enthusiasts.
The thrill-ride expert says that during the recent recession, theme parks around the world went into maintenance-only modes in order to reduce operating costs.
But 2013 will go down as a year of major new installations.
"It had been a while since we'd seen $10 million, $15 million, even $20 million thrill rides going in, but now there seems to be a pent up demand," Lipnicky says.
"I fully expect to have my socks blown off this year."
Here are 10 new rides that'll do the job, in alphabetical order.
1. Bandit Bomber (Yas Waterworld, Abu Dhabi)
This magnificent new ride opened in January in Abu Dhabi, where winter temperatures average in the upper 70s F.
That's probably why it's the first coaster in the world equipped with laser guns and water bombs in every seat.
Other 2013 debuts at Yas Waterworld include the Liwa Loop, the Middle East's only looping water slide, and Dawwama, the world's first and largest hydromagnetic-powered water slide.

2. Batman: The Ride (Six Flags Great America, Illinois)
More than 28 million riders have experienced this U.S. coaster since its debut in 1992.
The inverted coaster has been so popular, clones have popped up around the world, such as the popular Le Vampire in Montreal.
But 2013 marks the first time the original Batman: The Ride in Illinois will take riders on its hairpin turns, vertical loops, zero-G roll and corkscrew turns while traveling backwards.
"Nothing compares to the thrill of racing down 10 stories facing the other direction," says Hank Salemi, Six Flags Great American park president. "You literally have no idea what's coming next."
