Superman Tower of Power reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Superman Tower of Power, a drop ride at Six Flags Over Texas. (The minimum height to ride is 52 inches.)
Written by James Rao
Riders are launched up the tower (space shot) then slow just before reaching the top. The cart then falls halfway down the tower before being sent back to the top to complete the turbo drop portion of the ride.
Once at the top, the cart is locked in place for a few seconds before it is dropped in a freefall before being bounced half way up the tower and dropped again for unloading.
On very hot days, operators only run the space shot portion of the ride.
Superman: Tower of Power is a Flash Pass attraction.
I'm rating it average. Most of the ride is rather dull. The best parts are the initial launch and the first drop. After those moments, the bouncing that eases riders up and down feels too controlled to make it all that exciting. - Carl Stovall
