Sky Rocket II is a Premier Rides launched roller coaster product. The first installation was Superman Ultimate Flight at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. There are currently eight operating installations.

Ride Experience

The ride begins with a launch halfway up a vertical spike. It then stalls and goes through a backwards launch up the non-inverted loop. It then does a full-power launch up into a slow heartline roll. Then, the coaster does a twisted vertical drop into a non-inverted loop element. It flies through the station and launches up the vertical spike for a last time and the ride ends.

Installations

There have been nine installations since 2012.
