Superman Rollercoaster

 Six Flags

Six Flags America is a great destination for a day of family fun with more than 100 exciting rides, games, shows and attractions including Hurricane Harbor water park. 

While the Superman Roller Coaster (shown above) has been a long time favorite at the park, there are now 10 roller coasters at Six Flags. SUPERMAN: Ride of Steel is a hypercoaster so intense they had to come up with a whole new category for it. The oversized roller coaster is pumped at a height of 205 feet with a mind-blowing 200-foot drop. In 2016, the park added an all-new, ground-breaking experience incorporating the most innovative and cutting-edge technology—the world’s first Superman-themed Virtual Reality Roller Coaster. A new coaster is headed to the park in 2019: the Firebird, where riders will twist and drop while seated in innovative floorless trains. 

Enjoy the following photos and get a glimpse of the top attractions at the Maryland amusement park.
