 Review of Superman: Ultimate Flight @ Six Flags Over Georgia

I rode the prototypical B&M flying coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia days after it opened in 2002. As it was one of the first flying coasters by Swiss geniuses Bolliger & Mabillard the layout was brief and to the point.

You really need some faith in those harnesses when their the only thing between you and the ground 100 feet below. After the climb, the trains swoops down and to the right. Next, you enter the pretzel loop inversion. The pretzel loop offers some pretty heavy g-forces and is one of the weirdest feeling inversions around. Its difficult to describe, but you feel like your being turned inside out. Next, you do a few nifty swoops and turns closer to the ground. The train passes through a little covered section and traverses a sweet inline-twist. Then you hit the station brakes.

S:UF is fun and a must ride for those who havent been on a flying coaster. My main beef with the ride is the fairly short layout with only two inversions. For once, I couldnt say that B&M had created the best of type of coaster. I prefer Vekomas flying dutchman model (Firehawk, Batwing, & BORG Assimilator) to B&Ms S:UF clones. But that was before B&M created Tatsu for Magic Mountain. Ive never ridden it, but Tatsu appears to have taken the genre to a whole new level. Still, Ultimate Flight is not a bad roller coaster by any means. Its enjoyable, but short. Final Rating - 7.0 (Good)
