Superman: Ride of Steel

Six Flags America is one of the smaller Six Flags parks, but still manages a nice collection of rides. Roar, a 1998 GCI woodie, packs a punch; and the Dinn Corporation 1917 Wild One (relocated from Paragon Park in Massachusetts) was at one time the tallest rollercoaster in the world. The park's version of Superman: Ride of Steel is a mighty 200ft tall Intamin Mega Coaster.

In 2010 the park opened Thomas Town, a lesser-themed version of Drayton Manor's Thomasland, but this barely lasted an entire season and was rethemed in 2011 to a more generic kiddie area.
