History[edit | edit source]
In 2002, Six Flags Great America began development on a new Superman-cloned flying roller coaster by Bolliger & Mabillard. When the park announced the removal of Whizzer, park fans were furious. So, Six Flags changed their minds and Whizzer stayed open. In September 2002, the park announced that ShockWave would not reopen for the 2003 season.
The name Superman - Ultimate Flight was announced in February 2003. The coaster would reuse ShockWave's entrance. Superman - Ultimate Flight opened on May 3, 2003.
