Opening Date

Six Flags Great America's version of Superman: Ultimate Flight was among the first Bolliger & Mabillard Flying Coasters to open in the US, and opened shortly after the world's first (Air at Alton Towers). As with all rides of its type, it aims to recreate the experience of flying. Guests board the ride in a seated position, but the seats rotate to leave them facing the ground before the train climbs the opening lift hill.

After plummeting down a 100-foot first drop and hitting a top speed of 51 miles per hour, riders race through a series of twists, turns and inversions, including a pretzel loop and an inline twist.
