I'm also a little confused by the concept. Is it a drop tower where you free fall at the top, or will it just "zoom" up and slowly come back down? If it's the former, that could make this ride even more terrifying.
I rather like what Movie World has been doing lately, with the Green Lantern coaster, the Justice League dark ride, and possibility of this new "Doomsday" tower. As for becoming more of a "super hero" park, it looks like they're going with what works.

I completely agree. One of the pitfalls of movie-type parks is that any brand that doesn't become a classic can quickly become dated, and the park gets stuck with a pricey attraction themed to an unpopular license. Think Indiana Jones vs Lethal Weapon - both well-known but the latter lacks the 'timeless' aspect. Plenty of comic book characters, on the other hand, are already perpetually popular, so whether they're Batman or Snoopy they're a safe bet for a ride's licensing budget.
Movie World are, slowly, creeping towards becoming a full-day park. It's a radical idea, but I'm hopeful that at some point they will extend their operating hours beyond 10-5. On a busy weekend or public holiday, perhaps? One can dream...
I was wondering how long it would be before Doomsday showed up in the theme park world. We didn't see any Superman villains until the Bizarro coasters in 2009 and then again with Lex Luthor, but Doomsday was always one that I wanted to see.
The greatest threat the Corps ever faced was Parallax, an entity that fed on the yellow energy of fear.
