Six Flags Magic Mountain

Superman: Escape From Krypton (formerly known as Superman: The Escape) is an Intamin AG launched shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California.[1] It is one of only two reverse freefall coasters built by Intamin. It uses Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM) to propel the cars to the 104 mph (167 km/h) top speed. Viewed from the side, Superman's shape resembles a giant "L" shape.

Superman Escape From Krypton Logo

Superman: Escape From Krypton's logo from 2011 - present.

In 2010, Six Flags announced that it would be updating the ride for the 2011 season but there would be no Bizarro theme. The cars were reversed and the track repainted to blue, red, and yellow. The name was changed from "Superman: The Escape" to "Superman: Escape From Krypton". Superman: Escape From Krypton closed on February 5, 2012 to start construction on Lex Luthor:Drop of Doom, two drop towers themed after Superman's archenemy. Superman: Escape From Krypton reopened when Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom opened on June 30, 2012.
