About

Superman Escape takes riders on a themed adventure out of the Metropolis subway system through a range of hills, drops and turns. The ride commences indoors, with a 0-100km/hr hydraulic launch shooting the train out into the open where the coaster section takes place.

This ride replaced the Movie Magic Special Effects show.

Renowned roller coaster designer Werner Stengel's company Ing.-Büro Stengel GmbH is responsible for the ride's engineering. Some fabrication of steel was done locally by a Nerang-based steel manufacturer.
