History:Superman The Escape was originally intended to open in 1996.  Due to problems, it was never open to the public until the 1997 season.  There was a preview for season pass holders in the fall of 1996.

For the 2011 season, Superman The Escape was transformed into Superman: Escape from Krypton.  The most significant change was positioning riders to face backwards so they now look towards the ground rather than the sky on the vertical track.
