Superman: Ultimate Flight is coming to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
Faster than a 60 mph roller coaster. More powerful than a LSM launch. Leaps 150 foot towers in a single bound. Its Superman: Ultimate Flight! Coming to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 2012.
SUF is a very unusual coaster, it launches riders at 62 mph up a vertical tower where they twist 180 degrees. At the top, when the track levels off the cars are braked and then navigate a barrel roll 150 feet above the ground at a very slow speed. The cars are then dropped straight down around another 18 degree turn and then into a non-inverting loop. After that the riders are slowed to a stop in the station.
The track is very short at 823 feet and looks pretty crazy. It is painted in Superman’s colors of yellow, blue and red. There is a video at www.sixflags.com
