Superman Escape is an Intamin hydraulic-launched sit-down roller coaster located at Warner Bros. Movie World in Queensland, Australia.



The ride starts in a MRT (Metropolis Rapid Transit) subway station. Warnings of tremors make it necessary to move to the next station. This is move is done via a typical tire drive system. Many special effects follow such as gas mains bursting, a pumping station blowing resulting in a flood and collapsing walls. Then a blue streak is seen followed by Superman saying that he will save you and to keep your heads back. This is followed by the main launch.


5 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 20 riders per train.
