The Midwest's most unique flying coaster, Superman Ultimate Flight, is based on the DC Comics Super Hero, Superman. This new generation of coasters provides an unparalleled flying experience at speeds greater than 50 mph. The adventure begins as passengers board the sleek, 32-seat train. As the train exits the station, passengers tilt face-first into the flying position, suspended from the track above. The anticipation builds as passengers, climb the 115-foot lift hill with nothing but a bird's eye view of Six Flags Great America below. Upon take-off, the ride enters a series of sharp dives, high banked curves and spirals, uniquely designed to enhance the flying experience.
