Another reason hes full of s**t is that all the coasters have 2 trains except ROS.

After just a few hours ago riding The Riddler Revenge with those new trains, I can confirm the thing is WAY better than those bulky old ones we have right now.

Important to note the ride still has its flaws, but it was a pretty darn good ride when not having to worry about head banging and what not!

Will they ever bring back the Superman theming to Ride of Steel? I could see a The Flash theme work well on Tantrum... as long as they don't use Harley Quinn (they overuse her)...

^ they overuse every DC comic character. And I love it. Especially Harley Quinn and the Joker.

I’d take a Joker and Harley Quinn ride package over Superman to be honest. Even though I’d love for both.

^ Joker free fly coaster and a tilt a whirl themed to Harley would be cool in the future.

Wishful thinking, but if they rethemed Ride of Steel to The Flash it'd be the coolest thing ever. Just saying.

I think Superman fits best. I always thought the helixes were symbolic of him flying.

Here's my take on this.....I don't think they'd re-theme RoS to anything other than Superman. Think about it this way: Who, besides enthusiasts, call it "Ride of Steel"? Literally nobody. 20 years later and pretty much every park visitor refers to it as "The Superman". Say it was re-themed to The Flash.....great idea, but legit every non-enthusiast SFDL guest will still call it "The Superman", guaranteed.
Six Flags Darien Lake is my home park..... :?r

CURRENT COASTER COUNT: 63 ....yeah I need to go to more parks lol

TOP 10: 1.) Steel Vengeance, 2.) Millennium Force, 3.) Leviathan, 4.) Mako, 5.) Behemoth, 6.) Maverick, 7.) Top Thrill Dragster, 8.) Ride of Steel, 9.) Yukon Striker, 10.) Valravn
