what does that feel like to be launched at 70mph on an inverted coaster, and where is it going to be located?

If you've ridden Volcano the Blast Coaster at paramount's Kings Dominion, you'll have a good idea of being launched on an inverted coaster. The only other ride that is close to SUE is the Linear Gale in Japan (park name escapes me right now so don't beat me over the head). SUE is taking shape quite nicely behind the Mind Eraser running parallel with Route 43. Track is already going up both ends of the ride. It appears this will be the first of the 3 major coasters to be completed...... but with it being a launch ride, I hope SFO decides to get all the testing done before the season starts.

I would sure hope that SUE will be the first to be completed. As simple as that ride's structure is, it should have been up weeks ago. Now testing the LIMs, that's a different story.

You have to remember that Superman was the last of the three coasters to have its footers finished to the point where veritcal construction could begin though. Once that had started, the structure began to go up fairly quickly.
