It’s time for Round 3 of the Comic Book Roller Coasters Tournament. There was a particular showdown in Round 2 that created a tie for days. With the tie finally broken, let’s move on to the next round. There are now eight roller coasters left. First, let’s take a look back at Round 2.
Round 2 Recap: Super Close Showdown & 4D Coasters Crushed
Mr Freeze Reverse Blast passed Superman Krypton Coaster by the slightest margin. Also the remaining 4D roller coasters were defeated by huge margins. I’ve never been a huge fan of 4D coasters and voters might be saying that they just don’t stand up to a traditional roller coaster experience.
- Superman The Ride (Six Flags New England Hyper) 93% over Joker (4D Coaster) 7%
- Joker (RMC) 65% over Superman Ride of Steel (Six Flags America Hyper) 35%
