Well, we know the addition was unplanned when Superman was built, so in some shape or form they had to compensate the cosmetics of the ride purely for function on an existing structure. Considering we don't see these kinds of installations very often, I really have little issue with how odd it looks, as long as it works and is dependable.

Personally the make-shift style kinda makes it even scarier IMO.


Good point.

Ride Lex Luther? Now? Right now? Umm sure? **Swallows handful of Ativan**
I am already terrified to ride this but I may as well..I will certainly be kissing the ground when the ride is over.

:omg: Just looking at this makes my stomach churn and my palms sweat! Drop towers are about the only rides that make me nervous... this looks tantalizingly frightening! I can't wait to ride it! :lmao:

Yeesh they really went out of their way to make that look as ramshackle as possible.

Eh, your post is not that much better(sorry, love your posts usually but bashing SFMM for bashing sakes gets old)

I think it looks amazing, the ride blends perfectly within the structure and it will sure be one hell of a (scary) ride

Those restraints are unbelievable for a park that went to the extent of putting OSTRs on Revolution. I never had a problem with OSTRs on drop rides, so this will be a truly amazing and terrifying experience.

And a company that put OTSRs on Intimidator 305. I think the idea of Drop Tower Lapbars are brilliant, especially since Intamin's Drop Tower OTSRs have had so many incidents in the past (not saying they were Intamin's fault, but it's bad publicity either way).
