Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth pendulum ride


After all, there was that 76-year gap between the character’s 1941 introduction in the pages of DC Comics and her first starring film, the cultural phenomenon that was Patty Jenkins’ 2017 “Wonder Woman” film starring Gal Gadot.

The latest attraction at the Jackson, New Jersey, thrill park, Lasso of Truth officially launched on Thursday — and it’s reportedly the tallest pendulum ride in the world.
