No. 5: Bizarro -- Six Flags New England
Bizarro, formerly called Superman: Ride of Steel, is a fan favorite. For the last 11 years, it's been either the winner or the first runner-up for the Golden Ticket Award for Best Steel Coaster.
Located in Six Flags New England in Springfield, Mass., Bizarro is 208 feet (more than 20 stories) high, includes a breathtaking drop of 221 feet, and reaches a top speed of 77 mph. The ride lasts for 2 minutes, 35 seconds, and it has a lot of airtime -- those moments of weightlessness that are prized by coaster enthusiasts.
The scenery, aptly, is bizarre. The trains speed along a purple track, go through foggy tunnels and upside-down buildings, and pass columns of flames, all the while rising, dropping, and twisting around.
And did we mention that everything is synchronized with an audio track that blares out of the headrests. No wonder so many people love this ride!
