Get ready to take flight!  Six Flags St. Louis has opened their new thrill ride, Supergirl Sky Flyer.  The thrilling attraction is sure to keep guests' heads spinning as they rotate through the sky in open-air capsules with their feet dangling below them.

Supergirl Sky Flyer is one of Zamperla's Endeavour rides, a modern version of the Enterprise, a true flat ride classic.  The ride starts horizontal to the ground, but as it begins to spin it lifts vertically, eventually inverting riders as they spin around.

“The new Supergirl: Sky Flyer leads the way for the 2019 season with breathtaking, high-energy thrills,” said Park President Phil Liggett. “Every year our guests, Members and Season Pass Holders count on us to bring new and innovative experiences and we’re excited to have another winner for them to enjoy.”

Riders hit a maximum height of 67 feet above the ground while they are rotating on the attraction at 25 miles per hour.  It is capable of flying 24 riders per cycle at a maximum force of 2.9gs and the attraction comes with a brilliant light package once the sun goes down.
