I guess so Jeff.  Looks like he made it through the Ultimate Escape, and now its time for the Ultimate Flight.

Jeff's avatar Where's anything? They need a lesson from Magic Mountain, Cedar Point and the like on how to sell a new ride to the public. We need visuals, folks, not an amateur (and poorly written) press release!

Superman was just trying to escape from those silly tights the whole time.  He will now be seen at Six Flags Over Georgia only in a pair of comfortable khakis from Structure.

What a disappointing announcement, IMO.  I mean, after waiting so long, you think there would at least be some kind of rendering to show people, since the press release does virtually nothing.

I wonder if SFOG isn't allowed to show anything until AIR opens in March?  Could that be part of the deal?

I promise you, there is no deal.

Good grief!  They don't even list the manufacturer in the press release?  Way to go SFOG pr.

I had a dream last night that the ride was called 'Superman: Supreme Ultimate Escape' .. lol =).... that would have been funny if thats what it was really called.....

I told ya so!

I am surprised it discussed as much as it did, speed, height, elements, etc. but a layout diagram would help.

Now where are all of those people that were so sure it would be a hyper-flyer? ;)

Superman: Ultimate Flight, huh?  So will the SFNE floorless be called Batman: Knight Escape?

:)  Ok, how long before we get a "Good grief!  All you people do is complain! B&M RULES and  you should be happy they're building anything" sort of post?

They should open a Pizza Hut stand near the coaster where they can serve Ultimate Deep-Dish Stuffed Crust Supreme Pizzas too.

Would you like an extra superlative with that, sir?

Who would care who the designer of the coaster is other than enthusiasts, who already know?

Other than that I agree, the press release is sloppy.
