New and improved Superman ride at Magic Mountain

March 16, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Six Flags Magic Mountain is taking riders to the next level of extreme on Superman: Escape from Krypton.

The newly designed, sleeker Superman cars catapult you backwards, shooting straight up a 41-story tower. Riders get to the top of the tracks in just seven seconds.

Riders will hang for a moment face down, with a birds-eye view of the entire Santa Clarita Valley before plunging back to ground level.

Superman: Escape from Krypton opens March 19.
