Drop tower

Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom is the world’s tallest vertical drop ride, with guests boarding one of two eight-person gondolas situated on either side of Superman: Escape from Krypton's lattice tower. The gondolas hit the top of the tower in 95 seconds, offering stunning views across the park.

While they are at the top, guests can ponder the unprecedented, 400-foot, 85 mile per hour, villainous freefall of fate that awaits.
