Superman Construction Update
August 14 2005
One more piece of track has been added onto the end of the launch.
The launch cable will pass through the gap created by this double support.
The pulleys in the track angle the cable towards the launch components.
Superman Escape's launch will be mostly indoors.
One of the colossal support structures for the tophat has gone up in the past few days.
The highest support connection point can be seen at the top of the tower. At this point the track will be 90º (and twisting to the right).
There will be one more piece of straight track before the twisting begins.
As you can see, directly following the tophat will be a high-speed banked turn.
