Tunnel deep into SUPERMAN’s icy Fortress of Solitude to face the ultimate challenge—1,315 feet of track that bends straight up into the sky 415 feet high!

SUPERMAN’s home world of Krypton is beautiful but daring.  Watch out for the walls lined with glowing green kryptonite! You and 13 other would-be super heroes must escape by piling into a sleek car that will blast you off this frozen rock.

Strap in, take a deep breath, and get ready to blast off. You’re about to shoot from 0 to 100 miles per hour in seven seconds flat—in reverse. This record-breaking speed and acceleration has never before been achieved in a thrill ride, let alone backwards. And now you know how this ride got its name—this is the greatest escape of all time!

You’ll blast off like SUPERMAN, launching straight up the track at 90 degrees, a full 415 feet in the air! Hold on tight because once you’re totally vertical you’ll experience utter weightlessness for 6.5 seconds. But don’t get too used to it, because what goes up must come down. You’ll pretty much instantly plummet back down the tower track at a slamming 92 miles per hour, faster than a speeding bullet. This type of insane acceleration is only possible with a cutting edge electromagnetic motor designed just for SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton.

The world races by as you fly face first right back down the track to Earth. Now all you need is a cape.
