Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has kicked off their 2012 season into high gear with the opening of Superman Ultimate Flight. This is unlike anything you have ever experienced before. From the launch to the highest inversion in the west, it is pure fun from start to finish. We spoke with Park President Dale Kaetzel, where he told us there are only a few places in the park where they can build to 150 feet. The former Zonga and Big Spin pad was one of them, they partnered with Premier Rides to bring us the most unique ride in the world. San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh compared his experience on Superman not to any other roller coaster but to his experience flying in a F-16 with the Blue Angels.
Superman is now open and takes flight for all Discovery Kingdom guests to enjoy. The ride is worth every minute of the wait and be prepared for that. It operates with one 12 passenger train. The Superman crew does an awesome job of dispatching the ride and keeping the line moving. Watching the ride shoot guests 62 miles per hour through 862 feet of track is going to keep guest pumped while waiting their turn to fly. Continuing Discovery Kingdom’s tradition of world class family animal attractions to the best thrill rides, Ultimate Flight will thrill guests for years to come.
