Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Superman: Ultimate Flight, a roller coaster at Six Flags Great America. (The minimum height to ride is 54 inches.)

A one of a kind B&M flying coaster which tilts you head-first before rolling you through a series of twists and turns. This ride is most popular for its breathtaking pretzel loop, but falls short afterwards save a gravity roll near the end.

Ride isn't as exciting as I was expecting. There is a gravity roll towards the end and a gravity drop in the middle that make it worth riding. Tip - Use the single rider line (through the exit with the speed pass) you can get on within 20 mins. - Jeremy Sheley

One of the Superman:Ultimate Bore clones. It is a cool coaster, but never ride if the line is longer than 20 minutes, which it usually is. Better flying coasters include Tatsu, Manta, and China's Starry Sky Ripper. - raging bull

Really long wait. Only wait in the park. It was a really uncomfortable ride and really wasn't anything spectacular. - Andrew Dougherty

This was a hard one to choose between good and comendable, but Superman can get quite uncomfortable with little action towards the end of the ride. I still do like the ride, and the loop provides great thrills, but not much after that. Plus it is alwayyssssss crowded - Joey Till
