Blue and red painted track with a Superman logo on the ride station makes the ride a "strong themed" ride? I always thought the themes for the US based Superman rides were basically a joke.
I'm really liking the idea of a Bizarro themed ride because:
1) The queue will have
to introduce the character, as he isn't that perfectly well known.
2) It ties into Clawshun Industries perfectly
which means at least so far, their attention to theming has been far above and beyond the usual.
3) It is daring enough to theme the ride on what I assume will be the storyline, and not just on the best known character.
I think it's really an interesting tact, and we'll see how well it works out. I think the ride has to be well themed to work now so it could be a disaster (with a great ride still at the heart of it) but it would really be an evolution in theming.
There are no other rides that I can think of that are named specifically for the villain who I assume Superman will have to save you from before the ride is over... It could be a very neat theme.
