Conquer LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom
More time to ride when park begins daily operations
The beginning of the season is a great time to conquer LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom, because it will get your adrenaline pumping and prepare you for all the thrills you’re going to experience this year. Consider these tips when riding LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom.
1. Dare to open your eyes.
As you sit atop the 40-story steel tower anticipating that rapid plummet, keep your eyes open for an amazing view of the area. You’ll get a bird’s eye view of the entire park—even Goliath looks small way down below you. You’ll also get an awe-inspiring view of the surrounding area. But you better look quickly—it all soon becomes a blur as you plunge down at speeds of 85 mph.
2. Prepare to set a record.
LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom is not only the tallest structure in the park, but it’s also the tallest and fastest vertical drop ride in the world. At a peak height of 400 feet, you’ll pause at the top to scrape the sky for a brief moment, then free-fall back down at a record-breaking 85 miles per hour. You may try to scream, but you’ll reach the bottom before you even have time to open your mouth.
3. Time it right to watch the enemies race.
LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom shares its structure with SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton, as the two drop towers are integrated on the sides of SUPERMAN. On some occasions, the two rides may operate simultaneously for an adrenaline-pumping and dizzying ride experience. This means that while LEX LUTHOR is free-falling down the tower, the 100-mile-per-hour SUPERMAN cars are blasting backwards up the tower at the same time.
After conquering LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom, you’ll be ready to tackle anything that comes your way. What advice do you have for riding the record-breaking drop tower?
