Enough so that there was an entire episode of Seinfeld devoted to him, in a manner of speaking.
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.

I love donkeys more than me.

^The episode doesn't revolve around the villain Bizarro anyways. They used the term Bizarro to mean opposite in a way.

I'm very glad to see Superman return. The park really let Bizarro go to crap quickly. Hopefully they can take care of it this time. (What am I kidding? This is Six Flags we're talking about)

Considering that they're pretty much keeping the current audio trains, I'd be willing to bet imaginary money that it will end up being just as apparently "meh" that it is now after a few years.

You have to give Six Flags' corporate marketing credit... They know well that the general guest will see this announcement and think that this is the first time Bizarro has been changed. I love that they actually used the old photos of Superman for this "new" announcement. Nothing like knowing your audience... :lmao:

They also used photos of the one at Six Flags America.

All the promo images were current photos of SFA's Superman. You can tell because of the 8-car trains and the airtime finale picture. Anyways, I hope they remove the on board audio and switch to audio from the lift itself, burin won't get my hopes up. Glad to see at least a new flat ride which goes against this parks' love for removing them. Not a bad announcement at all and a good follow up to Wicked Cyclone.

Well if they are keeping the old trains that could still renovate the seats and restraints. As long as the beefy lapbars are fixed and you can actually feel your legs after the ride then I'll be happy.
Is this a trick question?

Too bad they are getting rid of the Bizarro theme and colors. I thought it looked cool, and there are so many Superman named coaters already. On another note, Six Flags is adding lot of non-coaster Larson Loops to its parks, and trying to pass them off as coasters. I don't think so.

^Not at St. Louis! Its a "high-trill ride" title there. :p

To be fair, in corporate's video, they called it a coaster once, in the very last line

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Hooray! This park is actually adding a flat ride! If they want to call it a coaster that doesn't matter to me at all, it's still a flat ride and the park desperately needs it.
