From Ruth HonorHas anyone ridden Superman since to changed over to Bizarro. I wanted to know if the special effects are any good and whether or not the seat design has changed.

From Ruth HonorI rode it Thursday. The track is the same but looks even more stunning painted purple. The cars have been changed out. They now have a head rest with speakers on each side. The speal begins as the train leaves the station and as you reach the top you hear, "didn't your dad ever teach you to look before you leap." The soundtrack is a series of random movie quotes. The two tunnel now contain so much fog you can't see a thing. At the midpoint you pass through a series of geometric shapes in the shape of supermans sheild. They light up at night. I ended up riding four times. Twice in the front and once at night. This coaster is as close to perfection as they come.

From Ruth HonorFYI I tried to post a four paragraph response but it wouldn't go through. I don't know if it was my computer or the site. If you have any questions about the ride, any of the other coasters, or the park in general respond or email me directly.

I wanted to note that when you are in the front row as you crest the top and begin the decent for a brief second you can't see the track. You appear to be heading straight for the ground.
From James RaoThanks, Ruth, for the update. Been wondering how the ride changes have impacted the experience and it sounds like they have improved it. I have not been to SFNE yet, but I travel to Hartford a couple times a year on business (just a hop, skip, and a jump from the park). Sadly, I have not yet had a trip during the summer when the park is open. Maybe next year...

From Eli KatzmanI have a few q's, ruth. Was Kingda Ka open? And on Bizarro, weren't there only 2 seats in the back? And was that soundtrack all the way through the ride?

From Ruth HonorHi Eli,

Kingda Ka is located at SFGA in New Jersey. I was at Six Flags New England. You might be confused because there are two coasted named Bizarro. The one I rode used to be named Superman: Ride of Steel. It is a hyper-coaster. The other bizarro is the previously named Medusa a floorless coaster at SFGA. Yes, they did play the sound track throughout the entire ride. I spoke with someone who was there a few weeks ago and said the sound wasn't working that day. I also found a you tube video call Bizarro vs Bizarro which shows ride videos for the two. They are very different coasters. Hope that helps.
