What exactly is the ride's course? I will be riding in mid-April and Disney seems to have a way over not telling much aboot the layout of the ride.

Isn't the first inversion after the launch a standard loop?

Doesn't a sea serpent count as two inversions? It appears to be an close cousin of the cobra roll, which if I remember correctly, counts as two inversions.

First you ride trough a Sea Serpent. Later you ride trough a Corkscrews. The coaster is BORING! (This mains for the Superman, not for Rock and Rollercoaster, that is a great coaster.)

In other words you dislike SFH's outdoor model (superman), but you like RnR at Disney Studios Florida? I would have to agree as well, the theming makes all the difference. This would be the same way with Space Mountain. If that coaster was outside w/ no theming it would be boring as well. This proves that Disney can take boring coasters and make an adventure out of them.

RnRC is awesome because of the totally rocking speakers it has :). Not to mention that this is one of the few Vekoma built rides that I've been on that didn't give me any headbanging. This was my 2nd favorite ride @ Disney next to Tower of Terror.

Disney actually built the roller coaster first and then built the building around it. If you go to http://www.wdwmagic.com/construc.htm you can see the structure of the roller coaster before the walls were added
