Superman: Escape from Krypton holds many titles: third-tallest, fifth-fastest speed (100 miles per hour) and third longest drop. The ride propels passengers up a massive “L” shaped structure backwards at 100 miles per hour before the trains free fall back down the 41-story structure, allowing them to feel 6.5 seconds of weightlessness.
