This B&M floorless, looping roller coaster was the flagship attraction at Six Flags Fiesta Texas until the debut of the Iron Rattler. Seated in floorless trains with nothing between your feet and track below Superman Krypton Coaster begins with a 16-story ascent and 163-foot drop off the rock quarry wall that borders one side of this Six Flags theme park. Taking advantage of this unique terrain, the coaster climbs atop the wall once again after going inverted in a giant vertical loop. Superman Krytpon Coaster is notable since it features the world's second tallest vertical loop on a steel coaster.
