The only coaster of its kind in the Northeast, Superman – Ultimate Flight based on the DC comics superhero, defies the laws of gravity. Riders on this coaster "fly", head-first through highly-banked curves, spirals, and a jaw-dropping, pretzel-shaped, inverted loop at 51 miles-per-hour.

Superman – Ultimate Flight features a pretzel-shaped, inverted loop where the trains climb to the top of the figure and dive into the loop, descending close to the ground. A sequence of thrilling curves and dives follows including a highly inclined "horseshoe" curve and high-speed spiral. The coaster concludes with a 360-degree, in-line roll that will surprise guests just before entering the station.
