Superman Ultimate Flight is a Premier Rides launched roller coaster located at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California, USA.

History[edit]

On August 21, 2011, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom posted a teaser saying "Can you keep a secret? It's bigger than a breadbox, smaller than Rhode Island, and it's coming in 2012. So get ready for the sort of exhilarating, high-octane thrills that only Six Flags Discovery Kingdom can offer. Find out more on September 1." On September 1, 2011, the park announced Superman Ultimate Flight. Superman replaced the Pandemonium, which was closed on January 1, 2012 and relocated to Six Flags México.

Design[edit]

Ride experience[edit]

The train is launched out of the station and enters the vertical twist. After losing its momentum, the train travels backwards, through the station where it accelerates further, travelling up,backwards, through the second vertical twist. After losing momentum for a second time, the train travels forwards, through the station and up through the vertical twist before slowing to a crawl at the ride's highest point. It travels slowly through the barrel roll, providing some hang time. The train then dips into a downward twist and through the non-inverted loop before diving into the station. The train then reaches the vertical twist, before it loses momentum and goes back to the station.

Trains[edit]

Single train with 2 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows for a total of 12 riders per train. Riders are held in by lapbar restraints.
