I don't understand your question. Is Superman worth a 3 hour wait? There is no coaster out there that is worth me wasting 3 hours waiting for, so for me the question makes no sense. Is Superman worth riding at all? Of course it is. There's no way to tell if the flying gimmick is your thing or not if you don't try it at least once. So once again, the question (as you typed it) makes no sense.
Is Superman worth it to SFGAdv? Well the fact that you indicated that's it's a big hit sounds like a yes to me.
I thought SUF was a great experience and far different then the vekoma models. Now only if they would build more "airs" and "tatsu's", we would be set. The SUF layout is VERY bland, and the pretzel is not all that exciting. A normal loop is much better, such as on X-Flight/Batwing/Borg.
What a strange forum topic. Sirchubs has already ridden it and should have a definitive answer, but he seems unsure. Listen, you either thought the three hours was worth it, or you didn't. If you didn't like the layout, then obviously it wasn't worth the wait. In my opinion, I'm smelling a versus topic in disguise.
Here's a fun fact about S:UF. I have been on it once (the one at GADV). And I go to Six Flags every weekend. I thought the ride is ok, nothing great. Ok, I found it boring (other than the pretzel loop). Weird thing is there is always a multiple hour wait for this thing and I relate that not to ride experience but to more the "gimmick" that attracts people to the ride. The laying down thing for me is uncomfortable and makes me feel vulnerable. Not the position I wanna be in on a coaster. Moral of the story is, the ride doesn't do much for me and I'm not sure I'd run back in line for it anytime soon.
It's just in a bad area. It's not themed, uses zero terrain (SFOG's Superman is better) and it's just missing something. That said, I do like the pretzel loop.
If I had to rate the flyers I've been on, it would be Superman (SFOG), Batwing (SFA), Superman (SFGAdv), Borg (PCar) because Borg doesn't have any place to hang on to but a yellow nub... it's not pleasant to ride.
Rob Ascough said: I like it. I don't like it enough to wait more than an hour but I think it's a good ride. Not B&Ms best but far better than neighboring GASM, which never has more than a 10 minute wait.
See, I'd take a few spins on GASM over Superman. I'm not saying its a better ride, I'm just saying the wait time for the ride is about on par with the ride quality, which I cannot say for S:UF.
