Superman: Ultimate Flight reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Superman: Ultimate Flight, a roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure. (The minimum height to ride is 54 inches.)
Written by Dan Forget
A basic B&M Flying coaster, with a pretzel loop, several swooping turns, and an inline twist.
When talking about rides I hate talking about lines, but there could be three people in the park and you could wait 2 and a half hours to get on this ride. The ride never lives up to that exhausting wait, yes it is a very unique experience going head first into the loop and even going belly up on a corkscrew is kind of interesting, the rest of the ride is pretty bland. So unless your one of those inpatient jerks who buys a flash pass, this ride really isn't worth the wait. (6/10) - Matthew Scarinci
One of the better flyers built. Still very smooth and you have the sensation of flying. A ver good B&M coaser and the lines were not that bad. The day I was there. - Joe Schwartz
The ride, 8/10. The maintenance, 1/10. So, I had a flash pass and had no wait, just the staircase. I was very excited because the line looked to be 3 hours or more. I actually waited 45 minutes to get on!!! It was all because Shaq (the worker, real name) didn't like his job. It took 10 minutes PER CAR!!! Still the ride is great with a good first drop and an always amazing pretzel loop, but I still think this ride was not as good as it's Georgia counterpart. In Georgia, maintenance was better and the ride worked with the land, almost hitting roofs, supports, the station, and best of all the ground. This doesn't. This ride is lazier as it is far away from the ground as it's on flat land. Just lazy on Six Flags Part. 7/10 - Edward Morgan
I absolutely hate this ride. We were stuck on line in the middle of the Summer heat for three hours, only to get stuck on the ride in the horizontal flight position. Needless to say it was horribly uncomfortable in this position. Because of this experience, I will never go on this ride again. In all honesty, it's not that exciting after the first initial drop anyway. - Sarah Durden
An overall really good ride with one superb element (an amazing giant loop). It's the perfect park opener. - Jon Gibbons
