Superman The Escape at Six Flags Magic Mountain was once the park’s signature attraction. Opened in 1997, it was the first coaster to break the 100 mph mark. While short, the ride does provide for a good thrill after the 100 mph launch. The coaster then rockets skyward before descending backwards towards the earth. In recent years, there have been numerous rumors suggesting that the ride would be repainted, rethemed, or removed. And now, this sign has shown up:
The ride may finally be getting that long overdo revamp. So what will it be? Will the ride continue the Superman theme? Or perhaps it will get the Superman: Ride of Steel treatment, a transfer to Bizarro. It will be interesting to see what happens to the ride. From my experience wit the attraction, I would not mind seeing it removed entirely, as I see it as an eyesore.
