Facts:The Xpress has nearly the same track layout as the "Rock 'n' Roller Coaster" models at Disney Parks. The Xpress' layout is a bit more spacious to compensate for a higher speed launch due to the trains being lighter without the musical hardware.
Theme:The Xpress / Superman was initially to be called "Riddler's Revenge" and was painted green at the factory.  Shortly before the ride was installed, it was decided that Europeans know of Batman, but not necessarily all of the related villains.  So the track was repainted with red and blue supports and given a Superman theme.  The station was given the theme of the Daily Planet offices.

With the departure of Six Flags and Warner Brothers, for the 2005 season the theme was changed to that of a travel agency.
