The only good part about the ride was that I only had to waste 15 minutes to ride it. This ride proves looks can be deceiving, because it sucks. I remember the hype about Superman, and man was everyone wrong. Do not waste your time with this, especially if there is a long line. The ride is like 5 seconds long. If you really want to wait for something, go to Riddlers Revenge or Scream.

I thought that this ride was O.K... The line was a bit annoying because there was a teenager blabbing about Ashlee Simpson. I ended up letting her go in front of me (little did I know this would be my undoing). We got to the front of the ride and saw the teenager launch off screaming the whole way. While we were about to get on, the air gates for our row jammed up. The stupid operator didnt even notice and launched the train another time. I walked out of the line to tell him about my dilemma, and he yelled at me for going in restricted space! Anyhow... the door opened and I got into the car. A loud booming voice says standby for launch. After that you get launched at maybe 70 mph (its not intense at all) The car managed to go about 3/5 of the way up the tower. There was no airtime. I experienced none. I expected an abrupt dropping sensation, but I got nothing. I think that this ride has really deteriorated. Even worse is that one of the tracks is in disrepair. When we entered the cavern we saw that the entrance to the left was boarded up. I also checked in the station and saw that the left track had rust, and no visible car. A major disappointment

sure doesnt feel like 100MPH. The launch does not feel any more intense than Xcelerator or Hypersonic XLC. The air time is very sweet though. Luckily I got two walk-ons or I might feel differently if I had to wait. Do your legs a favor on take The Orient Express up the mountain to S:UE.

I didnt see what all the fuss was about for this ride. I couldnt even tell that we were going that fast. It just goes out and up and back down. I didnt feel very many Gs and I sat in the back. I guess it is a good ride if there is no line.

Its really average! The launch is extremely, annoyingly loud (and I hate loud noises). Sure, its cool being weightless and all, but its not really an escape. You just end up at the same spot. (LOL) S:TE is really overhyped.

Launch, done. It is way too loud when walking under it, and it doesnt even feel like youre going 100mph. Quite boring in my opinion. The only saving grace is seeing my mom screaming, "Oh my God, OH MY GOD!!!" the entire ride. Also, the line is a mess. Garbage was everywhere, and the walls bounce the sound around making it extremely loud and annoying while waiting.
