Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Below shows how high it was going up the tower the day I visited.

 

 

Hate to be a negative Nancy but that is sad. Ridiculously low, almost to the point where it's not worth riding (if some of my friends saw that, then saw the wait was more than an hour, they wouldn't even consider waiting in line). It almost looks more like a kids coaster than a world class thrill ride.

 

I really hope MM finds some way to make Superman go higher, otherwise I don't see how the popularity will increase for the long run after opening.

Have been told it is not at full power and why it is only half way up the tower, bit of luck it is running at 100% when the Australia trip is at the park. I do know they have been having problems with it which would be why they have cut back on it. My first ride it failed to launch first time and had to wait for it to cycle through the sequence before being able to attempt a second launch. An hour is a bit for it but it has always been around 30mins to 1hr queue minimum. We aren't as privileged as SFMM when it comes to coasters. If you want kids coaster instead of thrill ride check out Mick Doohan's Moto Coaster, it is advertised as a thrill ride but the parks enterprise is more thrilling!

Wow, that looks really good! I like the Superman Logo too.

 

Believe it or not that Superman logo on the back of the tower at the top of the ride used to light up, and you could see it on the freeway if you were coming south down the 5. I think the lights been off for over ten years.

 

It'd be spectacular if they could get it up and lit again, seeing as how the rides going through a rehab and all, as it was a sight to see back then and it'd be cool to see now.

 

Always wanted one in my room

That would be cool. I hope they get that working.

These days with LED technology, they could light that logo even more brilliantly than ever, and it would cost a fraction in electricity than it did before. Hopefully they'll consider that.

Yeah...if only LEDs were more reliable...maybe its me, but almost every single traffic signal I go to that has LEDs, at least one of the bulbs has a couple of the LED's are out--no matter how new the bulbs are. Same with signs on the streets, or with lights on cars, inevitably there's always a reliability issue and it makes everything look awkward.

 

If used on the Superman sign I'd guess they'd have the same issue not before too long, and it'd be half lit. Maybe LED technology will get better in the future.

^ You make a good point. We saw some LED floodlights that would be perfect for the motion-sensor light in the entry at our house. Indeed, two of them light the place up like daylight. But one by one, they started failing till it got down to about an eight of the bulbs lit. I finally tossed them and got fluorescent ones that work just fine.

 

As for the logo, if not LEDs, something else would be cool as well...maybe something where the logo is animated in some way.
