October 1, 2011: Lex Luthor - Drop of Doom

Six Flags has released details on the "Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom" ride set to be opened at their Magic Mountain theme park in Los Angeles in spring 2012, which will be the world's tallest vertical drop ride once completed.

Named after one of DC Comic's most dangerously intelligent super-villians and Superman's greatest enemy, LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom is attached to both sides of the iconic SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton tower. You and your friends can experience this thrill all while SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton cars are blasted to the top of the same structure.

Sit inside a floorless gondola on one of two vertical tracks flanking each side of the SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton tower. You'll be pulled to the top of the 400 foot tower, experience a brief pause then drop at speeds of up to 85 mph. After the five second freefall, you'll be stopped by a sophisticated magnetic braking system just a few feet from the ground.
