Thought it was fun, but not to good. The track was a little short. It was still FUN!!

This ride was pretty fun. when i went on it for the first time i was in the front row. it was all good. the drop seemed a little slow but when you got to the pretzel loop it was amazing but after that the thrills left and i did get hurt because of the restraints. but after i got off i felt fine. i had fast pass thank god. oh and when you enter the station your still hanging for a minute and you feel really stupid.

ride it!

Much like when I rode the one at Great Adventure, I gaineda greater respect for my homeparks terrain, the same terrain that I moan about on those hot summer days. On a flat plot of land, the ride uses a lot of its visualrs, and 90% of the ride is based purely on visuals. Without it - well, we have an awesome loop surrounded by a bunch of yawn-inducing flips and turns.

I give this ride an 9 for just Concept. The idea of bringing flying to somewhat of a reality is just too cool. There could be better theming like Batman. But overall a cool ride.

I loved the idea of flying and all that but its too short, and too boring. The 3 best parts of the ride are obviously the first hill, the pretzel loop, and the inline twist. The wait is still over an hour long for it normally but its worth a spin everytime you go

I give this ride an 8.5. It was fun with good turns and loops. It was really fun flying through the air.

One off for shortness but this ride was awesome. I loved the drop and the giant loop. Good speed, smooth ride, just too short.

Times ridden: 1 ~ Ride experience: 8 ~ Layout: 7 ~ Appearance: 8 ~ Thrill factor: high ~ Airtime factor: N/A ~ Reride factor: medium ~ Evaluation: I really enjoyed Superman, even more so than the Vekoma version featured in my home park. The ride is intense, especially during the pretzel loop, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I love the concept, but Superman was just too short. Toss in some more twists and turns, and even some track where the riders are on their back, and this would be a top notch ride. Hopefully, well see that in the future, but none the less, Superman is still a fun ride thats worth a spin or two.

Although flying coasters are not thirlling to me anymore, the General Public still seems to love waiting for them.

Rode in back. The intensity of the pretzel loop in the back seat was unreal. Is a little uncomfortable trying to hold your neck up watching everything and waiting for the train to pull back into the station.

Superman had a lot of potential but it ends up coming off as a lazy ride.

First of all, considering all the attention Batman the Ride got in the theming and ride line attention, the decor for Superman is pathetic. A dozen cutouts of characters with print really hard to read is the only theming in the entire line. Thank god I fast passd it 2 of three times because it would have been insanely boring to sit an hour or more in that line.

As for the ride, the flying thing is cute, and suprisingly comfortable, but its only really useful in that first big loop. That first loop is worth riding it for, but after that you kinda just meander around for a very short amount of time and then its over. Then you hang there like a doofus for a minute while you wait for the other ride to roll out...thats irritating.

I give it a 7 because that loop is very nice and theming can only factor so much into the actual ride enjoyment.
