You'll launch backward from the Krypton-inspired launch station, blasting from zero to 104 miles per hour in less than seven seconds. Superman: The Escape debuted in March 2011 as an all-new rebuild of the cars and ride system for this Intamin-designed launch coaster.

Once you're sucked out of the station and down the track, momentum will carry you straight up a 415-foot tower for a moment of weightlessness before you drop, face-down at 90 degrees, back the way you came. It's pure speed back to the station, with the wind blowing 100 mph in your face.


Underwhelming. A good launch but not very memorable. Just seemed way too short. Really wish it could have been more but it just feels a bit meh after something like Top Thrill Dragster. 6/10
Good coaster, but Six Flags should totally make an extension. Shorter wait times and would lose status as one trick pony.
This ride was amazing. You're going 107 mph for a long time, not just a few seconds, which is one thing I really love about this ride. I like how you go up backwards, so that you get a great sense of how high you are. After an epic moment of weightlessness, you come plummeting down to earth. However, the restraints take away from the drop. A lot. Overall, it's a pretty fun ride and is one of the more underrated rides in the park.
