    LIM work is continuing. The facebook page mentioned the installation of blowers. There shouldn't be much track to install overhead the station. It's the straight piece of track with the brakes and the inline twist. On the ends are the vertical twists and the noninverting loop.

    Pictures from the park's fb page. The upper supports going up really look like Mr. Freeze structure. More track has been placed.
    It's interesting that though not all the track is finished a train car was already being lowered onto the track. I wonder how they will maintain this train.

    The big S gets raised onto the ride. The park announces the ride will open June 23rd.

    All track is completed. The angle of the track at the end of the first tower suggests the train should barely have juice left when it reaches the brakes before the inline roll overheard.

    I can't believe this is already the third coaster on this site.

    This coaster really looks like it's a creation out of RCT and would have a small scale model at a convention show.

    Is this element even tighter because of the very short train? It looks pretty cool. It has the thick Premier spine.
    The crossbars change in design in case they want to put the brake strip there.

    Superman is testing! The near vertical drop after the inline roll at the top of the structure looks pretty cool.
    We got two car train operation.

    Does it even launch forward or does it begin with a reverse launch? If it does the reverse launch OMG is that going to scare the utter bowels out of people hahaha.

    This gets a WANT from me <3

    Forward launch to rollback. Then it rolls reverse up the back tower. Finally it gets a full blast to go through its course.

    Hot photo. Look at the spine. From the park's facebook page.

    I saw Media Day coverage elsewhere: WOW. That coaster really twists. It twists more than an Intamin Impulse. Superman looks cool. Bravo Premier.

    The ride had stalled this last weekend. It's just like CHILLER.

    Superman: Ultimate Flight now has a small platform at the top. The train got stuck at the top of the tower last year preceding the inline roll. Now maintenance can climb a caged ladder to this platform to most likely give the train a shove if it gets stuck again or the platform would be used for evacuation.
