    Favorite Superman Coaster Part II

    After the addition of 2 Supermans in 2002 I'd like to post a new Superman Poll, a revised one. I already used "Search" and found one not as detailed.

    I voted for Superman: Ride of Steel at Six Flags New England. This just looks like the PERFECT hyper! A great first drop into a tunnel, three huge airtime hills, a signature Intamin overbank, two viscious helix, another tunnel run, and the standard, yet explosive hypercoaster ending, negative-G packed bunny-hops. All with no line! It takes the best of an airtime hypercoaster like Steel Force and a twister hypercoaster like Goliath, and molds them into the ultimate 200 footer! Oh god, now I really want to go to SFNE!

    I like Superman Ultimate Escape the best because I love Impulse coaster and because I think SUE is the best ride at SFWOA.

    I say S:UE cause I like being launched then spiraling up, then on the opposite spike being held that high off the ground looking straight down

    I would say ROS at New England because it is the best Hyper, but S:UF and Superman at WBMW look awesome

    I've only ridden one superman ride which is S:TE, so if it was on rides I've ridden that'd be my vote of course lol. As far as what I think looks the best I'd have to say S:ROS at NE. It looks like the best hyper around w/ a great drop, airtime, tunnels, and good laterals.

    S:ROS

    I will have to go with S:ROS because my cousins rode that ride, and they really liked it. It looks really fun to ride too. Next would have to be Ultimate Escape, that too is a fun ride.

    When did you go to SFOG to ride it?

    My vote went to S:ROS @ SFNE! The whole coaster is great, it has the Airtime, the First Drop, the Tunnels, the Helixes... the best all around coaster.

    I voted for Superman: Ride Of Steel. Great ride. Not quite the best, but an incredible ride nevertheless.

    easy, S: ROS @ SFNE. It's got great elements. Speed, drops, helix, tunnels(mist inside the tunnels are a nice touch), Massive air time.

[/B][/QUOTE] you can't just say that a coaster looks good so it's the best. looking at a coaster is one thing. riding is another.

    Anyway back to the poll. I forgot to say, even though I have not ridden it, and am not voting for it, the coaster in Holland seems amazing. If some overseas posters have ridden it, please tell us how it is. thanks

    i've never been on any supermans . superman: ride of steel at SFNE deffinatly looks the best. i would say S:UF because it probably gives an awesome experiance but it just doesnt look fun. S:ROS looks amazing from start to finish.

    Not saying that it is the best or worst, but S:UE at SFWOA will be my first Superman coaster and 1st/2nd Impulse depending on when I hit CP. I figure if I can get thru an impulse like S:UE, then later on I can tackle S:TE and every other Superman coaster out there.
    Ask me why I say Banshee is NOT the new Kings Island coaster.
    Be sure to check out Speedzone as I have made 11 additions.
