For the first time Most Wanted Roller Coasters features a roller coaster in the U.S. San Antonio, Texas is home to Six Flags Fiesta Texas. The park is located in an old quarry and some of the roller coasters use the quarry cliffs in their layout. Here’s a satelitte view of the park. The most notable of which is the 2000 Bolliger & Mabillard Floorless coaster, Superman: Krypton Coaster.
Unlike the Medusa/Bizarro clones that heavily borrow from Kumba’s layout, Krypton is a custom design that looks to have a layout and loop progression all of its own. It’s a great looking coaster and I can’t wait to get down to San Antonio to take it for a spin. Over the weekend I met up with Doug from the Season Pass Podcast at Kings Dominion. He called Krypton Coaster the best floorless coaster he’s ridden. Also, the ride recieved a pretty strong ranking in the 2009 Steel Internet Coaster Poll. Krypton Coaster came in at #45 just behind X2 at Magic Mountain.
