Time Riders is a retheme of Batman Abenteuer (1996-2004). When StarParks bought Warner Bros. Movie World in 2004, the company did not extend the contract with Warner Brothers for the use of their intellectual property. The park was renamed to Movie Park Germany and all IP-based rides were closed or rethemed. Batman Abenteuer was turned into Time Riders.
Even though the storyline has changed, both the interior and the gothic exterior of the building did not change much.
