As construction progresses on Australia's newest coaster, the first in three years and the first large-scale coaster in four, the layout of this Intamin launched ride comes together. At this stage the layout shows a high-speed ground hugging turn following the tophat and a colossal camel back followed by a high-speed indoor banked turn. Roller-Coaster.com.au has the latest construction images of Superman Escape.

This AND Disney....the Land Down Under is rising up in the amusement world! This does look like a fabulous ride.
For all the grief I give Intamin for their propulsion systems and restraints, the company DOES know how to build airtime hills.....with STEEP drops! :)

Or at least they know how to ask Stengle to add those in there, Bill ;).
I like Intamin Rides, I just don't like Intamin Safety and Reliability. I will get down there in the next 10 years...

Just like the one in SFMM!
What a rip off.

Ahh, dude, this isn't the same ride. It's a Rocket coaster like TTD, Excellerator, Storm Runner etc. Had you actually looked at the pictures, read the caption above etc., you would've known that. They've had the Superman Escape-like ride for years now.

Tekno, you better make a few trips otherwise you might not get to ride ;). It looks like alot of fun, but I doubt that I'll be able to head down to Australia for a while. As for Hamster Boy... shoot yourself by accident so i can nominate you for a darwin award.
