Darien Lake's flagship roller coaster climbs a 208-foot lift hill, then comes screaming down a 205-foot drop at a 70-degree angle. Ride of Steel has plenty of "airtime" or negative G-forces found on multiple hills, drops and bunny hops throughout the roller coasters "out and back" layout. This name for this roller coaster originally was Superman Ride of Steel, but the superhero had to be dropped after Six Flags sold the park.
