History[edit | edit source]

In December 1999, Premier Parks announced a $40 million expansion to Geauga Lake, which would be renamed Six Flags Ohio for the 2000 season. This included four new roller coasters, one of which being Superman Ultimate Escape, an Impulse Coaster from Intamin.[1] This was the second Impulse Coaster to open, and the first with a twisted vertical spike.

For the 2004 season, the Superman branding was removed and the attraction renamed Steel Venom. In January 2007, a park map was released with Steel Venom missing, leading to speculation that the roller coaster would be removed.[2] By May, most of the track had been dismantled.[3]

The attraction opened at Dorney Park under the name Voodoo on May 17, 2008.[4] For the following season, the name was changed to Possessed. This was due to Six Flags patenting the name "Voodoo" in 2008.[5]

Design[edit | edit source]

The train goes across the track five times per cycle. On opening, the ride had red track and blue supports. When it was relocated, it received its current yellow and teal colour scheme.

Trains[edit | edit source]

Single train with 14 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 56 riders per train.
