    Breaking Wonder Woman into her own thread as we have some more content to share on the ride's development.

    Ride stats:
    Length 1,800 ft
    Height 113 ft
    Drop 100 ft
    Inversions 3
    Speed 52 mph
    Vertical Angle 90°

    There are some nice theme renderings for the ride as well - a fun juxtaposition versus CGA's RMC Raptor.

    C'mon, Matt! You slacker!

    But since there's a thread for this now...Screamscape posted a construction photo (courtesy of the park if I'm reading Lance's update correctly) showcasing the progress of the supports:

    Don't blame me for Six Flags doing a blanket announcement of rides and not providing enough content to supplement each individual attraction as thread. :p

    That queue actually looks really nice.

    Quite excited to see this go up. Should be interesting to see how this compares with RB

    This will really round out the SFFT skyline nicely. I have always been a fan of the color choices in this park; lots of great Latin American colors.

    That looks really small.

    Superman Krypton's supports actually help as a reference to show how small the Raptor track is. I'm quite intrigued to see a coaster with such a narrow track perform really agressive elements.

    So does that wooden support mean this ride is also a hybrid now?

    Because of the small size of the track, that drop looks a lot bigger than it is!

    Indeed! As you scroll down, it looks impossibly tall and steep... and then you see the guy next to it.

    That drop looks unbelievable!

    Also I want to point out that the piece of track for the final curve is still being held by a wooden 2x4.

    The drop looks great and all, but I'm still so undecided about this?

    Could be worse. Would you want a 700 ft. volare instead?

    Only thing that really bothers me about this ride is that it's so close to the quarry wall yet they didn't try for any interaction with it.
