Superman: UE at SFO

Sunday, April 30, 2000 2:10 PM
Ok, so how many of you out there have seen Superman: Ultimate Escape in its testing stages? I've watched in multiple times, from close up and from far away. If you get close to it, you will notice that the backwards pillar sways when the train reaches the top. Was this on purpouse, or do I have reason for concern?

Has anybody ridden it yet (i.e. maintenance)?

See yah this summer at Six Flags Ohio!

All coaster sway. If they didn't they'd collapse. I saw some pics of it. There are no supporst after a certain height so the weight of the train will cause it to sway more than the wind would.

Parks hit for 2000!

I did see the ride test last Wednesday and it freaked me out how much sway was on the vertical end of the ride, as well as the twisted spike. But just like what coasterpunk said, they have to sway or else it would break apart. Skyscrapers are the same way.
