Superman Ultimate Flight, a new thrill experience incorporating two upside-down twists and two vertical rolls, has been unveiled at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in California, US.

The amusement park worked with Warner Bros Consumer Products and DC Entertainment to develop the new ride, which boasts one of the largest inversions west of the Mississippi river.

Built by Premier Rides, Superman Ultimate Flight includes a multi-directional magnetic launch system and transports 12 passengers in a two-by-two formation across two coaches.

Riders travel at a maximum speed of 62mph as part of the experience, with two breaks added at "unexpected intervals" to add to the dramatic effect of the ride.
