I would imagine that SFoG's new for 2002 B&M Flyer themed to Superman would have some interesting themeing being as it will be the only Superman that really "flies". ----------------- What is life without ups and downs!?!?

Yes I am. It's been said a bazillion times before on here and I don't this topic is the place to get into another discussion about whether it is or isn't. The whole world will know by the end of January 2002. (Hopefully!)

I'm not to big a of a fan of theming. Cause you can dress a piece of Sh*t up as much as you want, but in the end, its still Sh*t. I'd rather have a good ride with no theming then a bad ride with overboard themeing.

Viper @ SFGAm had pretty good theming when it first opened. But people ruined some things. One thing that was awesome was that right above the train in the loading station there was a burlap bag with a moving "snake" in it!!! It was pretty realistic!!!
The first time I rode S:UE I was actually really impressed of how the coaster went with the name "Superman." While standing in the station this red blur flies back and forth; much like in the old scenes when they show the city and Superman flying like a blur from one side of the city to another. Superman also stops in mid air, just as the coaster does the second time on the vertical spike. As GreatAdventureAddict said, I also thought the Dragons were really well themed to "fight" during the course of the ride. Many coaster's queues go along really well with the theme, but these coaster's actual performance really stuck out to me as going with the coaster name.
Mr. Freeze: You enter Snowy's cones Ice cream factory, (I don't know the next part), then You get in the train, and Mr.Freeze is behind the controls and there is no turning back, Then you Launch, or as I put it:
Jim I like your choices, but how much better would Volcano have been if inside the Volcano and before the second launch it was really hot, there was a ton of fog, the walls were painted red and orange, strobe lights go off, THEN the second launch kicks? It would be slow enough to appreciate the added theming because this would happen AFTER the helix I want between the two launches, hidden behind the Volcano from the rest of the park. I'd also add some flaming chunks of boulders rolling down the sides of the Volcano - actually painted rocks, maybe have them move up and down by mechanical means...create some "near misses" with the riders on the coaster...bubbling streams of "lava" flowing down the sides...just a few thoughts! ----------------- the buzzer formerly known as gatorwoodie Son of Drop Zone - PKI CoasterCamp I Champions!!!

all the coasters at disneyland are themed wonderfully, but are crap.
