Formerly known as Superman: The Escape, Superman: Escape from Krypton was closed in July 2010 to allow several major changes to be made to it. It eventually reopened on March 19, 2011. The updated ride sees guests blasted using an electromagnetic launch system at speeds of 100mph up to a maximum height of 328 feet, before plummeting back down into the station below.
In the previous setup, riders faced forwards on the Intamin-built coaster, meaning that they have a view of the sky as they are fired towards it. In the updated ride, they instead start facing backwards before seeing the ground rapidly recede away from them. It then rushes back towards them as they drop back down into the station, experiencing weightlessness both on the launch and on the fall. After several months in operation with both cars running backwards, one will be switched back to running forwards - enabling riders to choose between the two different experiences.
