Ride Facts and Info

Is is bird, is it a plane, no it's a Vekoma clone! This time Six Flags give the Superman name to a Vekoma Steel Looper, which is an outdoor clone of Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney-MGM Studios, but without the effects.

The ride entrance is very close to the park entrance, which means it tends to have long lines early in the morning. The ride entrance and the first part of the queue are enclosed, and have a Daily Planet style theme. Whilst I was in line, they were playing the Batman theme, and not Superman, which I thought was a bit strange!

Ride Layout

The ride begings with a left turn out of the station and into a tunnel. The tunnel has lighting and smoke effects, and features a LIM launch. After the launch, the ride features a convoluted layout over water, including several headchoppers, a Boomerang style inversion, and a Corkscrew.

Ride Evaluation

Superman The Ride is quite smooth, especially for a Vekoma coaster, but it tends to lack the intensity of the Premier Rides Spaghetti Bowl coasters, to which it is similar to. However, it's still a good enjoyable ride, with a nice setting over water, but it lacks that special something to make it a great ride.
