According to the press release, it will have superhero music playing throughout the ride. So sounds just like they're swapping out the 8 track. ;)
That coaster dad [336] and that coaster kiddo [216]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Twisted Timbers. Intimidator 305. El Toro.

Kiddo's faves: Talon. Alpengeist. Raptor. Twisted Timbers. Fury 325.

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

Pretty sure it was said they were sent to SFA to be used as parts for their SROS when the transformation happened.

Yeah but SFNE has one of the BEST 1-2 combos in the world with Superman and Wicked Cyclone. Some parks would kill for that
1.Skyrush 2.El Toro 3.Fury 325 4.Maverick 5.New Texas Giant 6.Wicked Cyclone 7.Twisted Colossus 8.Superman:TR 9.Millennium Force 10.Apollo's Chariot

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Apparently the trains will remain the same. I hope they know it's going to take more than paint to fix this ride. And the music better be on the lift/brakes only. Enough of the onboard audio nonsense.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I emailed Jen, the amazing spokeswomen and she said the trains will stay the same, but will receive many upgrades and enhancements for a better ride experience.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Was Bizarro really a well known character in the U.S. for non comic book readers? Out of all the super-hero rides there have been for Marvel/D.C. over the years when they announced the Bizarro re-themes way back, it was the only one where I had to go look up who that was.

^ Yeah I admit I had never heard of Bizarro until this ride.

I was just thinking the other day it'd be great if they change Superman and Medusa back to their original themes! Never liked the look of the Bizarro thing.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Yes! Superman is back. This is going to be great, so many people around here get confused as to why it's Bizzaro, many still refer to it as Superman so hopefully this clears it up for them!
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year
