Has your guys' Superman been running a little rough this year as well? At Darien Lake, I think that this year the ride has felt a little bumpier and rattily; although I usually ride in the back. Seeing that these were the first Intamin hypercoasters built, the trains could either use major refurb, or new ones altogether.

If anything, I would like to see the trains go away with the current restraints, as my legs always bash against the side brackets.


Ive ridden Superman twice this season and it was honestly pretty good. Although this was my first time riding it since 2013. However I feel like superman is starting to creep up the lifthill very slow now.


In 2011, we had a chain issue that put the ride down for the last leg of the season. This was the same year that the rider was ejected. So we were out of our star attraction for basically the whole year.

The part that failed was custom and took a long time to manufacture, so its possible that SFA is trying to put as little stress as possible on their chain until they can get a backup or replace it altogether in the offseason.

Hopefully along with the waterpark expansion, sfa decides to put in a new flat ride or some retheming or improvements to the sections in the park. I would even like to see Joker's Jinx backwards (if thats possible).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ I agree, but I'm sure the water park expansion is all there will be. SF could surprise us, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Other than some better theming in Gotham City, they do not need to do anywhere else. I'll take the flat. I bet there will be new trains on something though.

Give Darien Lake your old trains so we can actually operate more than one at a time on RoS! ;)

Jokers Jinx need's a point job. They were so clever with Mind Erasers colors.. Has it been touched up since the original color change ?

I know that the SFNE version will get new trains (the question is when?) but I haven't heard anything about the S:ROS version getting new trains.
Sometimes when I am at the park I ask myself "Why is Kingda Ka open?"
