    Theming Launch Smoothness Too short

    Superman deserves the tallest and fastest to be named after him. While this is taller and faster than most other rides in the world, it could be better. I’ve only ever been launched backwards, maybe I’d enjoy it more if I was facing forward.

    Intensity Duration Dead spots

    Make the first drop steeper and get rid of that horrid break run in the middle (you literally decelerate to zero), and you’ve got yourself a solid hyper. I know this ride gets a lot of flack for those features, but it’s still fun.

    First Drop Intensity Intensity

    This ride is incredibly intense, easily the most intense coaster I’ve been on. I loved it, but if you’re someone who is still getting into coasters, hold off on this one for now. It’s awesome and tons of fun, but you need to work up to it.

    I’d put more pros if it let me. Excellent coaster from start to finish. If you’re lucky enough to duel, this excellent coaster becomes the very, very best. It’s unbelievably cool and fun - But even if you don’t get to duel, it’s an absolute blast.

    Pace Layout Discomfort

    This ride is SO LOUD!! You can hear it from pretty much anywhere in the park, and when you’re close to it, it’s deafening. It might only be because I’m tall (6’4”), but this ride is very painful for me. When I get off, my legs are very, very sore. This would probably be a lot better as a floorless coaster.

    Inversions Headbanging Disappointing! Discomfort

    If you’re not going to sit in the very front row, don’t bother with this ride.

    First Drop Theming Layout Lap Bar

    I am a huge Superman fan, so going up the chain lift with John Williams’ original theme playing is an awesome way to kick off a ride that’s fantastic start to finish. Just get rid of those lap bars!!!

    Airtimes Location Duration Rattle Discomfort

    The best terrain coaster in the country! Boulderdash can sometimes be a little uncomfortable (depends on where in the train you sit), but that slight discomfort is completely worth it. This coaster rips through the woods with awesome airtime moments, but due to it being built on a mountain, you’re close to the ground the whole time so it feels like you’re going even faster. I will always love this ride!

    Pace Masterpiece Layout

    Easily the best coaster in the park and perhaps the best wooden coaster in the Midwest. The little coaster truly delivers thrills like few coasters can. It really makes me miss the Ozark Wildcat as that was very similar and probably a tiny bit better, but it is rotting away in storage. This is better than Kentucky Rumbler and far better than Prowler on the other side of the state. I rode this within an hour of it's opening years ago, it was great then, and I think it is getting better with age. The pace, twists, turns, and air pops keep you hopping all around in the wonderfully comfortable trains. This little coaster may not have the crazy speed, height, or inversion angle stats that many newer coasters do, but it delivers thrills like very few can.

    Pace Masterpiece Intensity

    Well, what to say about this...it was super anticipated and super hyped. It had a huge expectations to live up to. Plus, when I was there the line was about as long as I will tolerate standing in. Was it worth the wait and did it live up to the expectations..? In a word, absolutely. Many people are calling this the best coaster on the planet right now, and I have zero reason to argue with that. This thing is crazy intense from beginning to end. It never lets up. It seems to go on forever twisting in and out and through the huge wooden forest of supports. Even if this were just the first drop and one circle around the layout it would be on many top tens, but with the length and the intensity throughout, it is a masterpiece of coaster execution. Of course it is liquid smooth. Throw in crazy speed, tons of air, dozens of near misses, disorientation of being within the structure, several inversions that all really work here, and you have fantastic recipe for a wonderful coaster. Truly a world class thrill machine. One of the best.
